New Dish Hopper set-up can record eight shows at once

January 6, 2014

Dish Network is unveiling a new recorder system that can record eight TV shows at once, as long as four of them are from the broadcast networks ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox.

The system involves a new Hopper digital video recorder unit and a Joey add-on box for separate rooms.

Dish Network Corp. also unveiled partnerships with LG Corp. and Sony Corp. so that Hopper users can view shows on a DVR in another room without having a Joey box. It would involve an app on a smart TV or PlayStation game console.
