Picking a movie to watch, or a new TV series to begin, can be a little tough when you have literally thousands of options at your fingertips.

Generally less than two minutes in length, these previews have been used by the movie industry for over a century to drive audience interest, and in the age of digital video, they’re an essential tool to help us navigate through a wealth of content.

This new integration with IVA attaches trailers to most of DISH’s on-demand titles (more than 40,000 movies and TV episodes), and additionally includes trailers for some content airing live.

From a Hopper 3 or 4K Joey, you can select these movies to record once they’re available on DISH.
