Back at CES in January, satellite service provider Dish announced its new 16-tuner Hopper 3 and a little device called HopperGo, a $99 portable Wi-Fi-enabled "mobile video drive" allows you to take your shows with you. Hopper 3 began shipping earlier this year, and now Dish subscribers can officially purchase the HopperGo.

You can use HopperGo to create a private Wi-Fi cloud to play back different transferred shows on up to five devices at once, meaning several viewers can be watching a different show off HopperGo at the same time. It's got 64GB of internal flash memory for storing up to 100 hours of content, and battery life is rated at 4 hours.

Needless to say, for parents who have multiple children, the HopperGo would certainly come in handy on long car rides.

Here are the HopperGo's highlights:

  • Now available to Dish customers for $99.
  • Not subject to any monthly fees.
  • 64 GB mobile video drive takes 100 hours of DVR recordings on the go.
  • Creates its own private wireless cloud to support up to five tablets and smartphones via DISH Anywhere app.
  • No Internet connection required.
  • Capable of up to four hours of streaming on a single charge.
  • Can additionally be used while charging.
