DISH and Netflix have partnered up to bring DISH customers Netflix content via the Hopper™.
Effective today, DISH customers will be able to stream Netflix content through the whole-home HD DVR, better known as the Hopper, for the regular fee of $7.99 – $8.99 a month. The streaming service provides TV shows and movies to online viewers and is now available from a pay-TV provider for the first time.
DISH Senior Vice President of Product Management Vivek Kehmka points out that the app integration gives customers easy access to their favorite shows and movies from both DISH and Netflix – all through the Hopper. The service is also anticipated to be added to other DISH devices such as its Joey receivers.
The pay-TV arrangement is a first for Netflix and Bill Holmes, global head of business development at Netflix explains the reasoning behind such a partnership as a no brainer; “Many households subscribe to both Netflix and a traditional pay-TV service. Our vast library of TV shows and movies, combined with Dish’s lineup of live-television content, gives customers easy access to a wide variety of complementary programming.”
