DISH Connects Hopper Platform To Industry Leading Home Automation System

DISH intends to keep leading the industry in offering more and better consumer choice and control. The integration will start with showcasing full Hopper remote control tuning capability. As the integrators become more familiar with the Hopper’s API, their apps and devices will be able to access the full range of Hopper features – not just channel changing and the program guide – such as the capability to manage DVR recordings, browse the entire Video-On-Demand catalog, and the ability to purchase Pay-Per-View content.

Among the key features of DISH’s “Second Screen” API available for use by home automation systems:

  • Third-party device pairing for home automation remotes that can emulate a DISH remote control key press;
  • Access to key system settings and Electronic Program Guide queries for the current program, as well as details of a particular event;
  • Channel Changing, including tuning and usage information on all Hopper tuners;
  • DVR commands, to search recorded content and list DVR information, start and stop playback, schedule recordings, and fully access unique Hopper features such as PrimeTime Anytime™ and AutoHop™;
  • Ability to purchase Pay-Per-View and On-Demand content.
