Each year, the International Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) hosts the International CES competition in January, where hundreds of companies proudly show their latest technology sure to wow eager consumers who love devices and gadgets that make life more fun and much easier. At this year’s CES, DISH unveiled the Hopper® with Sling™, an upgraded model of the hugely popular whole-home HD DVR that took the country by storm in early 2012. The new Hopper was so popular that the CEA recognized it as the co-winner of the coveted “Best of CES” award.
The new Hopper with Sling-enabled technology lets you watch live and recorded TV anywhere, at home or on the go using mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and PCs. You can also access thousands of On Demand titles from your mobile devices, at home or on the go, if you’re a DISH customer. But there’s more. With the new Transfers™ app, you can actually transfer recorded shows from your DVR to your iPad and watch them anywhere you like without an Internet connection. The Sling enabled Hopper® and Transfers™ app are just two more examples of how DISH strives to provide its customers the very best, most convenient TV-viewing experience possible!
Sling-enabled Hopper Features
The new model features a 2 TB hard drive, built in Wi-Fi and a 1.3 GHz Broadcom processor, which will enable the Hopper to run three times faster than any other HD DVR system in the industry today. With powerful technology like this, you can record up to 500 hours of high-definition programming and 2000 hours of standard-definition programming.
Another very appealing feature of the new technology from DISH is that the Sling-enabled Hopper Transfers app requires no additional cords or adapters. Once you’re a DISH customer with the Transfers app and load content to your iPad, you’re able to watch recorded shows anywhere you like even where there’s no Internet connection (think of those long plane trips!). Think of all the places you’ve said to yourself, “I wish I had something to watch.” Now, with amazing DISH technology, you can enjoy the TV shows you love absolutely anywhere!
