Pump up the Volume on your TV!
DISH has announced that it’s taking the personalized radio service, Pandora, and bringing it right into your home via the Hopper DVR Whole-Home Entertainment system. DISH customers can now search and access your favorite Pandora music no matter where you are in your home. If you’re not familiar with Pandora, you must check it out! You can actually create your own radio station by choosing the artist, song or genre you want to hear. Whether you love Billy Joel, Van Morrison, Black Sabbath, The Carpenters, Madonna, Pink, Maroon 5 or Lady Gaga, Pandora will match the musical characteristics to bring you a station that only plays music to match your taste.
Simply access your app, create or select your station and turn up the volume! Use the Pandora App on the Hopper to set the mood at your next party, keep you going when you’re cleaning, or add ambiance to your dinner. And since DISH has other great apps like the Facebook app, you can change your status to “Rocking out to Pandora at home with DISH” – all from your TV!
Pandora and the Hopper
DISH customers will be able to create a new Pandora account or log in with their existing one to stream music through their television via an Internet connection. Pandora is a wonderful addition to the growing DISH App family—existing apps include Twitter, Facebook, sports, weather updates and so much more!
Launched in 2000, Pandora, in conjunction with the Music Genome Project, provides users with a customized play list streamed across the Internet to various devices, such as your TV through the Hopper. Pandora listener hours for the month of March 2012 exceeded one billion for the first time with 51 million active listeners. Over 900,000 songs are in the Pandora collection from over 90,000 artists.

“We’re big fans of DISH and we’re also big fans of Pandora. So what could be better than finding out that DISH has added the streaming music service to its DISH Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR system…Pandora on the Hopper allows customers to easily search for their favorite artists or songs and create personalized radio stations that play only the music they love.”
So, the Hopper is Even Cooler Now with Pandora?

Accompanied by a Joey, a sleek set top unit the length of a dollar bill, DISH customers can watch a movie or TV show in one room, pause it, and then continue watching it in another room! Be sure to read about the PrimeTime Anytime™ feature of the Hopper. Just another of the many ways DISH technology trumps the competition!

The Hopper is free to new customers with qualifying packages, and with the DISH Hopper, you can enjoy your favorite television shows, movies and music when you want and where you want!
