DISH Network, the third largest pay TV provider in the US, has announced the availability of the Hopper, the technically advanced whole-home high definition DVR entertainment system.
The Hopper system lets viewers share DVR content on TVs throughout the home. Customers can pause, play and rewind both live and recorded HD programmes in up to four rooms using a Hopper and small units called “Joeys” that work in tandem with the main Hopper unit.
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.
