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.
