DISH Hopper

DISH Network Hopper and Whole-Home DVR Service

You haven’t experienced the best in whole-home DVR until you’ve used the Hopper from DISH Network. The award-winning Hopper, Hopper with Sling and Hopper 3 offer powerful DVR functionality and let you share recordings between any HD TV in your home by communicating with a client receiver, the Joey. The Joey is installed on each television in the home and gives you the same TV user interface as the Hopper. Up to three Joey receivers (four TVs) can communicate with a single Hopper and can be installed on both an HD and SD television (SD video output is RCA composite video only).


Combined, the Hopper HD DVR and Joey receivers create a whole-home solution that lets DISH customers easily record, pause and play back shows from any room in the home.
