DISH's New Hopper With Sling Delivers TV Viewing At Home And Away (Photo: Business Wire)

Customers can also use the Sling feature to watch DVR recordings stored on Hopper’s hard drive, including major network shows recorded using DISH’s PrimeTime Anytime feature. Both live and recorded television programs are available for viewing in the home as well as outside of it.

“Consumers want to access the shows they pay for on their mobile devices and only the Hopper meets that demand,” said Vivek Khemka, vice president of Product Management at DISH. “Our new Hopper with Sling simply makes it easier for our subscribers to watch their favorite programs on the go.”

DISH continues to offer Sling place-shifting technology using a separate Sling Adapter® accessory for select DISH DVR models, including the original Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR.

HOPPER APPS DELIVER MORE CHOICE AND CONTROL

In addition to the built-in Sling place-shifting technology, the second-generation of Hopper will have several innovative features, including:

Hopper Transfers™ – This unique capability is the long-awaited solution for watching recorded television programs when no Internet connection is available, such as in-flight or traveling on the road. The Hopper Transfers app lets viewers move recorded television programs from their DVR to an iPad and watch those shows on the go for no additional charge. The transfer of these recordings to the iPad occurs via Wi-Fi in the home. This feature is exclusive to Hopper with Sling.

DISH Explorer™ – This intuitive second-screen app for iPad combines TV, social media, and remote-control capabilities to enhance the viewing experience. DISH Explorer highlights trending TV programs based on real-time TV viewer data and social media measurements. The free app enables users to engage in conversations relating to the show they are watching on Twitter and Facebook. Sports enthusiasts can even keep up with real-time stats on their favorite teams. Finally, the app can navigate the Hopper’s channel guide, DVR and on-demand features using the iPad. DISH Explorer works with all Hopper models.

Apps – Hopper expands beyond TV with music apps from Pandora® and SiriusXM® radio, as well as multi-screen, multi-player game apps like PokerFun, Trivia TV and WeDraw. These apps work in combination with smartphones and tablets.

TECH SPECS

Hopper with Sling is powered by a Broadcom BCM7425 processor and runs nearly three-times faster than any other satellite-TV receiver in the U.S. market. Hopper with Sling contains a two-terabyte hard drive, giving viewers up to 500 hours of high-definition (2,000 hours of standard definition) recordings.

DISH’s Hopper with Sling includes built-in Wi-Fi for easy networking.
