Have you seen all of the technology released by DISH in 2016? It packs a ton of value for consumers. From the world's most powerful DVR to a portable TV-watching hard drive and a voice-activated remote, every customer will have their needs met.

You may have already heard about the Hopper 3, HopperGO and the newest DISH remote. But, if you haven't already, it's worth researching some of the best features in each of these brand new products. You'll be extra impressed as you skim through the highlights below.

Hopper 3

DISH Hopper 3It's the latest and greatest in the line up of DISH DVRs - and it far out paces the competition. It gives such a customizable viewing experience that customers will have a hard time thinking of how it could be better. Check out these most notable features:

  • Hours & Hours of Recording
    Up to 2,000 hours of TV can be stored on the 2-terabyte hard drive, which is twice the storage capacity of any of the DVRs from other major competitors. Full seasons of TV shows, hundreds of movies, and plenty of action-packed sports games can be saved for a later date.
  • MultiView
    With MultiView, you can keep your eye on four sports games or four news channels or four of whatever you want - all at the same time! For example, it's especially handy during the NCAA Final Four Tournament to keep all of your guests happy while March Madness plays out. (You may want to make sure you have a BIG TV.)
  • Built-in Apps
    You can turn any TV into a smart TV with all of the built-in apps the Hopper 3 provides. You won't have to navigate away from the DVR to get to Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, Pandora and more!
  • Watch Anywhere
    DISH lets you watch live programming and recorded content anywhere you go and on any mobile device. Whether you're at the gym, in the backseat of a car, fishing on the river or trying to hide from the kids, you can watch your shows when it's convenient for you.
  • 4K Ultra HD
    Get ready for the quality of 4K content. Your screen can't look any better or brighter with ultra-high definition TV.

And that's not all. There are several more features packed into this DVR. Take a minute to download and review our free comparison guide to see how the DISH technology in the family of Hopper DVRs has advanced since 2012.
