Dish Hopper Blessings Abound Mommy

Did you know that the average American family of four owns 2-3 televisions?  I had no idea of that statistic!  What's amazing is that they're now adding smartphones, tablets, and computers to their arsenal.  This is increasing the demand to watch videos and programs at their leisure and anywhere they go more important to these families.  What's a family in this situation to do?

This is where the Hopper from DISH can be beneficial for those types of families who want to have the freedom to be entertained at home or on the go by watching live and recorded TV anywhere using DISH Anywhere and Hopper Transfers. The Hopper is a Whole-Home HD DVR, exclusively from DISH, that gives you the ability to watch live and recorded TV anywhere and instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.  You can also you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite shows.

With the Hopper's capabilities, there will no longer be any fighting over DVR recordings.  Now you can record up to 6 shows at the same time during primetime anytime with the option to skip commercials with its Auto Hop feature.  Each family member can watch their show or movie of choice at their leisure and start and stop a movie or show on one device and resume that movie or show on another device by accessing the DVR library.  To take it on the go, you can access the Dish Anywhere online portal on your smartphone, tablet, or computer to act like a portable tv.  Additionally, the Hopper Transfer feature transfers your DVR recordings to your iPad with the free Hopper Transfers app before you leave the house so you're able to watch programs without an Internet connection, such as in-flight or on the road.

    My husband would go gaga over this! We dont have DISH anymore but if we move out into the country someday like we want to, we would get it again. I swear, If I didnt read blogs I’d never know about the new and cool stuff out there. I don’t watch a lot of tv at all. This came up at a family event this weekend and I had NO idea what they were talking about. NOW I do thanks to this post!

    I have had it up to HERE with my cable company…so this certainly gives me something to look into next week when I’m off work.

    Thank you for posting, Jaqueline. I don’t think I would call my family average, but when it comes to TVs, phones and tablets, I guess we are. The DISH Hopper has really changed the way we watch TV. My kids used to fight about what to record on our old DVR, but now they can record up to 6 shows at once. I love it because I work late nights at DISH, and the last thing I want to do when I come home is sit through a bunch of commercials; now I don’t have to.

    This would be an awesome thing to get the Hopper from Dish. I wonder how much it costs. I see the price, but I wonder what I can get. I am going to take a look into it. Sounds like it would be great to get for my family!
