ENGLEWOOD, Colo. --(Business Wire)--

Whole-Home HD DVR platform is available today, increasing the tuner
capacity of the Hopper experience. DISH's Super
Joey™ adds two network tuners to the Hopper's three native tuners,
allowing a household to record up to eight shows simultaneously. This can

"We know TV viewers have searched for years for a solution to alleviate
conflict over what to watch, and with Super Joey, customers no longer
have to choose one program over another," said Vivek Khemka, DISH senior
vice president of product management. "Combined with Hopper's 2,000
hours of storage, Super Joey makes it even easier for customers to enjoy
more of the shows they love without having to negotiate what's recorded
with other viewers in the house."
Super Joey was first
introduced at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)) earlier this
year, where it was awarded
the CES 2014 "Editors' Choice" award from Reviewed.com. During the
event, DISH also unveiled a troop of other Joey products designed to
extend the reach of the Hopper experience, including the Wireless Joey
and Virtual Joey.
The combined Hopper and Super Joey tuners gives DISH customers the power
to watch and/or record shows from any four channels in addition to the
shows on the four major broadcast networks or five shows from any
channels of their choice. Super Joey is powered by a 1305 MHz, 3000
DMIPS Broadcom (News - Alert) BCM7346 processor, features remote finder functionality,
and supports MoCA and Ethernet connectivity.
