In a busy household, there’s always some distraction that keeps you from sitting down, putting your feet up, and watching your favorite programs and shows at their regularly-scheduled times. With errands and chores eating into your personal time – along with time dedicated to the kids for soccer practice, music lessons, and help with mountains of homework – personal prime time is little more than sometime later in the week when you have a moment to yourself. And prime time TV is something that is often missed. But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the Hopper and Joey from DISH, you have a whole-home HD DVR system that allows you to record your favorite programs for playback on any connected TV at any time you please. And when you’re watching live TV, you have the power to pause, rewind, and replay scenes from your favorite shows.
The words “from any TV in the house” offer a lot of opportunity. Even when the kids are stacked up in front of the TV in the family room to watch their favorite kid’s TV program, you can watch your recorded shows, catch sporting events or movies in another room in the house – any room in the house, as long as you have a Hopper from DISH and the other TV is connected to a Joey!
A Joey is a multi-room extender that allows you to watch, record, pause, and rewind from any connected TV in the household. The Joey was specifically designed and built for households that have multiple TVs throughout. Early DVRs would only allow you to record and playback on the TV to which they were physically connected. No more! With the Hopper DVR from DISH TV, you have access to leading technology. Your favorite Cop Drama, Reality Show, or Medical Drama will never again be preempted by a TV show that someone else in the house wants to watch. With the Hopper and Joey, you can set a recording for your show and watch it later in the evening on your main TV or any other connected TV in the house.
As a multi-room extender that provides full DVR functionality for every connected TV in the house, the Joey allows you the freedom that old, single-TV DVR systems couldn’t. With the Joey, you’re able to connect 3 additional TVs in the house to the Hopper. That gives you full DVR functions on a grand total of four TVs. And every Joey comes with its own remote control (identical to the one that comes with your Hopper DVR). And if that’s not enough connected TVs in your home, you can always add a second Hopper and Joeys to extend your DVR functionality to more TVs in the house.
The Hopper itself features a 2 Terabyte hard drive, allowing you to record up to 2,000 hours of your favorite programs. Adding the Joey not only allows you to access your DVR content from any connected TV in the house, but also allows you to make use of all the DVR functions as well. You can easily take back primetime TV with the Hopper and Joey. And with Primetime Anytime enabled, you’re able to record all of the big 4 TV networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX) as well as 2 other channels at the same time.
