Does your family have a TV? While we do really limit the amount of time the children watch TV, they have their favorite shows. Sometimes there is not an agreement with what should be watched.
The average American family in a household of four is moving beyond owning just two or three TVs; they now have an increasing number of smartphones, tablets and computers. As a result, they are demanding the ability to watch video anywhere, leading to an explosion of mobile video consumption. If this sounds like your family, why not try to bundle where you can to save money?
DISH is a leader in satellite TV, providing subscribers with the highest-quality programming and cutting-edge technology designed with consumers in mind, all at the best value. We currently have a basic satelitte package from Dish and have been so happy with their services.
The Hopper™ is a Whole-Home HD DVR available only from DISH. Only the Hopper lets you watch live and recorded TV anywhere and instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Plus, you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite shows. We have yet to own a DVR but the new Hopper™ sounds pretty cool!
Check out some of the Hopper's cool features:
NEW — DISH Anywhere™ – Never miss watching your favorite team or program again by transforming your smartphone, tablet or computer into a portable TV. With the DISH Anywhere app (for Apple and Android devices) and www.dishanywhere.com online portal, customers can watch live and recorded TV including live sporting events, TV shows and movies – anytime, anywhere. DISH Anywhere also lets you take control of your DVR to schedule and manage recordings remotely. DISH Anywhere is included with every DISH subscription at no additional charge.
NEW — Hopper Transfers™ – This is the long awaited solution for watching programs when traveling without an Internet connection, such as in-flight or on the road. Simply transfer your DVR recordings to your iPad with the free Hopper Transfers app before you leave the house and you can enjoy your favorite movies or shows on flights or keep your kids entertained on a long road trip, even when you don’t have an Internet connection.

I know that for our family, we tend to take long road trips versus flying and this would be such an awesome way to expand our movie collection. My kids would love knowing they could watch their favorite episode of whatever is their current favorite, when they want to. We may one day have to make the plunge and upgrade our service to a DISH package with the Hopper DVR.
You can get the Hopper™ free when you sign up for DISH. Packages start at $24.99. (For 12 months with 24 month commitment. Restrictions Apply.) To learn more about the new Hopper™ from Dish, LIKE DISH on Facebook and Follow DISH on Twitter.
