Dish Network introduces Hopper and Joey High-Definition DVR System
What is the Hopper and Joey?
You've definitely been hearing about DISH's new "Red Kangaroo," but you've probably heard it by its common name - The Hopper and Joey. The Hopper and Joey is DISH Network's new HD-DVR receiver system designed to deliver Whole Home HD and HD-DVR services. With DISH's new Hopper and Joey system you'll be able to record up to six HD program at the same time and you'll be able to have HD and HDDVR in four rooms! This level of functionality is simply not possible with other service providers.
The Hopper is the primary HD-DVR receiver
When you order the new Hopper and Joey system the Hopper is your primary receiver. It is an HD-DVR (Digital Video Recorder) with a massive 2 TB Hard Drive (That's a Terabyte, or 1,000 GBs) that holds up to 2,000 hours of video, up to 250 hours of HD, or up to 1,000 hours of SD user recordings. In most cases, the Hopper receiver will be located by your primary HDTV. The Joeys are used to send HD signals to the other rooms in your house.
So what does the Joey do?
The Joey, cleverly named like a baby Kangaroo, hops from the momma Kangaroo (The Hopper) to the other rooms in your house. The Joey is a small receiver designed to work specifically with the Hopper. They act as little HD-DVRs allowing you to have full HD and HD-DVR capabilities in a total of four rooms in your house.
Each room that contains a Joey will receive HD programming, will be able to watch separate channels and DVR events at the same time, get it's own remote control, and be able to access all the DVR events on the Hopper. This is truly a Whole Home HD DVR system like the TV industry has never seen before.
Remote Control Locator
Everyone has lost their remote control a time or two - perhaps nothing is more frustrating. With Hopper, press a button on the receiver and your remote control will begin chirping so you can find it. Never waste another minute searching between the cushions or underneath the bed!
TV Everywhere with Hopper
DISH Network took the television world by storm with TV Everywhere, and Hopper jumps right in to this amazing technology. Simply add a Sling Adapter to your Hopper and you can watch your favorite live or recorded shows on your iPad, laptop, or compatible mobile device.
Not only will Hopper look better and deliver great picture throughout your home, but it's going to sound amazing. Many TV shows and commercials are recorded at different volumes, but SRS TruVolume helps keep that from becoming annoying. It sounds awesome because it is!
