DISH's Hopper API's Integrated In To The Thuuz Sports App. Change The Channel On A Hopper Receiver Right From The Thuuz App. (Photo: Business Wire)

Third-party Integration Underway

Thuuz Sports is the first developer to incorporate DISH’s APIs into their app, enabling DISH customers to control their Hopper receiver directly from Android or iOS smartphones. Thuuz Sports uses real-time analytics and social signaling to alert viewers to exciting sporting events. Fans can customize the app based on their favorite teams and sports leagues, including NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NCAAF and NCAABB.

By pairing the Thuuz app on mobile devices with Hopper, DISH subscribers can automatically jump to the most exciting games on their TV. The Thuuz Sports app also enables one-click recording of live or upcoming matches on the Hopper if a customer is away from their TV.

“Our goal is to make sure sports enthusiasts never miss an exciting game,” said Warren Packard, CEO & co-founder of Thuuz. “Our apps already alert users to the best matches in their favorite sports. Integrating with DISH’s Hopper receivers lets us take viewers immediately into the live action. For those times when they can’t watch the game live, we make sure they can record it to enjoy later.”

API Availability

Developers interested in working with DISH will be vetted to ensure that customer privacy and other considerations are met. Requests for the Hopper APIs are being accepted by email to devprogram@dish.com.
