CES 2013: Dish upgrades Hopper DVR with Slingbox tech

2:35 /

At CES 2013 in Las Vegas, Dish refreshes its kangaroo-themed DVR with a faster 1,305MHz Broadcom processor and integrated Slingbox.

-We're gonna hip hop to the top. We're gonna hip hop to the top. Hip hop to the top. We're gonna hip hop to the top. I got more soul than I can control today with my friend, Hopper. Hopper, you're the best. -The Broadcom 7425 chipset is actually quite a unique chipset because it has a built-in transcoder and this transcoder has full Sling functionality. And that's why we called the new Hopper, Hopper with Sling. With built-in Sling, the Hopper now advances the "TV Everywhere" experience available to Dish customers. Dish customers can watch live TV, DVR, and video on demand content on their Smartphones, tablets, PCs both at home and on the go. The "TV Everywhere" experience for most pay TV providers is either broken or very confusing. Some require separate apps. Some feature-- Some require extra hardware. Some feature in-home viewing only and those that allow out-of-home viewing only allow a limited setup channels. With DISH Anywhere, it's one app and very simple, it's live TV at home and on the go. It's DVR at home and on the go. And with the launch of Hopper with Sling, we'll also be refreshing the apps on iOS and Android platforms. Let's take a look at the new iPad app. When you launch the app, it shows you what's on TV, what's on your DVR, or even video on demand. You can launch the guide, see all your channels, select any channel, and say watch on iPad and it starts playing on your iPad. Once the video starts playing, you get full trick-mode functionality as well as access DVR content just like you could at home. So, with the new DISH Anywhere, customers can watch all the live TV and DVR on iOS that's iPads, iPhones, and Android tablets and Android phones anytime and anywhere when they have a Wi-Fi or cellular connection.
