When was the last time you were able to watch your favorite TV programs at their regularly scheduled times? Hardly ever, right? And when you finally do find the time, you may have to deal with multiple interruptions. Neighbors stopping by, phones ringing, and maybe even other household members who want to watch their own favorite shows at the same time. With the Hopper and Joey from DISH, you can have a whole-home HD DVR system that allows you to watch, record, pause, and rewind your favorite shows from any TV in the house.

Every home has multiple TVs throughout the house. Most families have one in the entertainment room, one in the master bedroom, perhaps another in a gaming or children’s room somewhere else in the house. With the advent of DVR technology, it became very easy to record your favorite programming and watch at a time that was more convenient to you. The problem inherent to earlier DVRs was that replaying programs could be interrupted by others who were sharing the same TV and DVR. Your favorite home or garden program may have been interrupted by someone in the household who wanted to watch their pre-recorded sporting event – forcing you to continue your program in another room without the full DVR functionality. No longer!

Although DVRs have been around for over a decade, it was a virtual impossibility to watch, record, pause, and rewind from any other TV in the household that wasn’t connected to the DVR unit itself. The Joey, a great technological advancement from DISH, is a set of multi-room extenders that can provide full DVR functionality to every TV in the house. The Joey allows you to connect 3 additional TVs in the house to the Hopper – for a grand total of four TVs with full access to DVR functions – allowing mom, dad, and the kids to watch their favorite programs in the room of their choosing. Each Joey even comes with an identical remote to the Hopper. And if your wish to extend your DVR functionally to 6 TVs, you can easily add a second Hopper and another set of three Joey multi-room extenders.

As the latest enhancement in the TV viewing experience from DISH, the Joey is a unique series of multi-room extenders that communicate back and forth with the Hopper – giving you access to anything on the Hopper from any room in the house with a Joey-connected TV. The Hopper itself features a 2 Terabyte hard drive, allowing you to record up to 2,000 hours of your favorite programs. The Joey not only allows you to access your DVR content from any TV in the house, but also allows you to make use of all the DVR functions as well.

With all the great TV programming available today, it’s hard to decide what to watch. With the Hopper and Joey whole-house DVR system, you can see it all – whenever and wherever you choose!
