DISH rolls out new Alexa commands for Hopper
June 13, 2018
DISH has introduced new Amazon Alexa voice capabilities that give customers the ability to set recordings, launch apps and navigate menus on Hopper family set-top boxes. This update enhances the Hands-Free TVTM experience by building on DISH’s existing Alexa voice functions, including the ability to play, pause, fast-forward, rewind and search content.
“We are working to create the best Hands-Free TV options for our customers, and these new voice capabilities are an important step in that direction,” said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “DISH customers already love the convenience that our Alexa compatibility brings to their home, so we’re continuously identifying popular voice commands to enhance that experience.”
