Dish TV Adds Bluetooth Technology To Flagship DVR

Posted on March 20, 2012 by Bluetooth SIG

The new Dish Network Hopper is now shipping, bringing Bluetooth technology to the company's newest and best DVR.  Dish is promoting the feature as a way for its customers to use Bluetooth wireless headphones with their TV.

The main Hopper DVR is designed as the centerpiece of a "whole home DVR system" that also uses smaller Joey units connected to other TVs in different rooms of the house. The Hopper has three tuners, picture-in-picture, and 2TB of internal storage that can hold up to 250 hours of HD content or 1,000 hours in standard definition.

It also uses DISH's newest, high-definition user interface and has a unique feature that uses one of the tuners to record all prime-time content from the four main networks nightly, creating an on-demand library stored for eight days.
