The Hopper system lets viewers share DVR content on TVs throughout the home. Customers can pause, play and rewind both live and recorded HD programs in up to four rooms using a Hopper and small units called “Joeys™” that work in tandem with the main Hopper unit.
Other Hopper highlights include the following:
Two-terabyte hard drive for up to 2,000 hours of entertainment
PrimeTime Anytime™ – customers, with a single click, can enable recordings of four primetime HD network channels, where available, and store them for up to eight days
Record up to six HD shows at once during primetime hours
Ability to watch HD programs and control the DVR in up to four rooms
The Hopper system is available through the DISH lease program. New DISH customers who subscribe to DISH’s America’s Top 200 or DishLATINO Dos programming packages or greater can receive one Hopper and up to three Joey units for free, including a standard professional installation. The Hopper system requires a whole-home DVR fee of $10 per month and $7 per month for each Joey.
“Whether watching your favorite primetime network show or the men’s college basketball championship games, there’s no better way to enjoy TV than ‘jumping’ from room to room using the award-winning Hopper and Joey,” said DISH Network CEO Joe Clayton. “The Hopper, named after DISH’s new kangaroo mascot, delivers network TV shows on demand and thousands of movie choices streaming or delivered to the hard drive; it’s a slam dunk in providing the most entertainment options for the entire family.”
DISH is promoting the Hopper through national TV advertising starting today. Visit here or www.youtube.com/dish to watch a TV spot.
New Must-have Feature — PrimeTime Anytime™
The Hopper’s unparalleled feature, called PrimeTime Anytime, allows customers, with a single click, to enable recordings — using a single tuner — of all primetime TV shows on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. PrimeTime Anytime records three hours of network programming in high definition, where available, every night from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday and from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET on Sunday. The Hopper stores the primetime programs for eight days after they have aired. This creates an on-demand library of approximately 100 hours of primetime TV shows, making it easy to catch up on missed episodes.
For Internet-connected customers, The Hopper’s on-demand capabilities give access to DISH’s Blockbuster @Home™ for $10 per month, providing thousands of movies and TV shows streaming to the TV.
The Ultimate TV Everywhere Experience
The Hopper offers the ultimate TV Everywhere experience. Customers can manage their Hopper’s DVR and timers via the Internet at www.dishonline.com or from the DISH Remote Access app available for tablets, smartphones and computers. Connecting the Hopper with the DISH Sling® Adapter provides customers the ability to watch and control all live TV channels and their DVR from their tablet, smartphone and computer wherever they go.

LightSquared planned to deploy a nationwide 4G LTE network in the United States. The firm’s service was found to cause interference with spectrum used by various GPS navigation and tracking solutions, however, forcing the Federal Communications Commission to block the network’s launch. Dish Network is looking to build a similar network and is currently awaiting government approval. Executives and analysts have said that Dish will probably avoid the interference concerns that killed LightSquared’s network, Bloomberg reported on Monday. The satellite company’s frequencies, which are above 2GHz, are far away from those used by GPS devices and Lightsquared’s 1600Mhz band, and are less likely to interfere. “It’s not as close to GPS, so it’s unlikely to interfere,” said Matthew Desch, chief executive officer of Iridium Communications, which operates more than 60 satellites. “But the approval is going to take some time. The FCC is going to make sure they don’t have another LightSquared problem on their hands.” Bryan Kraft, an analyst at Evercore Partners, believes that Dish will gain FCC approval in 6 to 12 months.
