Netflix App Now Available on the DISH Hopper DVR

 

DIsh Netflix Hopper AppENGLEWOOD, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — DISH today became the first major pay-TV provider in the U.S. to integrate the Netflix app into its set-top box. Available on DISH’s second-generation Hopper, the app gives customers the ability to instantly stream Netflix movies and TV shows, including “House of Cards” and “Orange is the New Black,” from the same platform used to access their linear television channels. The Netflix app will rollout to DISH customers throughout the day.

“Pairing Netflix with Hopper represents the consolidation of two incredible video experiences,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH senior vice president of product management. “This app integration eliminates the need to switch television inputs to access content on varying devices. It gives our customers easy access to their favorite shows and movies, on both DISH and Netflix, without ever having to leave their Hopper.”

“As the first major pay-TV provider in the U.S. to add the Netflix app to its set-top box, DISH strengthens an already robust video entertainment experience for its customers,” said Bill Holmes, global head of business development at Netflix.

“Many households subscribe to both Netflix and a traditional pay-TV service. Our vast library of TV shows and movies, combined with DISH’s lineup of live television content, gives customers easy access to a wide variety of complementary programming.”

Hopper customers will find the same Netflix user interface found on most other platforms. The app is easily accessible from any channel by clicking the blue button on the DISH remote and selecting the Netflix icon, or from the Netflix icon on the Hopper main menu. Those new to Netflix can create an account in the app or by visiting www.netflix.com/dish.

The Netflix app is currently available on all broadband-connected second-generation Hopper set-top boxes. In the coming months, DISH expects the app to rollout to Joey, Super Joey and Wireless Joey clients. Additionally, in the future, titles available on Netflix could be integrated into the search functionality across live, recorded and Video On Demand programs for both the Hopper as well as DISH’s forthcoming OTT service.

Dish Negotiations with Turner Networks

News Dish Turn Negotiations

Dear DISH Customers,

Effective October 20, 2014, DISH’s contract with Turner Networks has expired and they have removed CNN, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, CNN en Español, Headline News, truTV, and Turner Classic Movies from DISH’s channel lineup.

DISH promises its customers the best programming at the best possible value. Currently, Turner Networks is making unreasonable financial demands. We have had a productive relationship with Turner Networks for many years and are confident we can reach an agreement and restore these channels soon.

We’ve reached agreements with many highly rated channel owners in the last year, including The Walt Disney Company and NBCU. We are working around the clock to reach a fair and reasonable agreement with Turner Networks.

It is unfortunate that these negotiations have impacted customers. Until this is resolved, customers can learn more about these negotiations, including alternate viewing options, at www.DishStandsForYou.com
