DISH Anywhere™ means you can watch TV anywhere–literally. With DISH's Sling-enabled Hopper and an Internet connection, you can access your live and recorded TV–plus thousands of On Demand titles–from your laptop, tablet or mobile phone.

No Internet? No problem. With the Hopper transfer feature, you can upload select recordings to your iPad or other mobile device and watch your shows without any connection at all.

PRIMETIME
ANYTIME

There's nothing more irritating than having to sit through TV commercials when all you want is more action and drama. To help fix the problem, we created PrimeTime Anytime® and AutoHop™–giving you complete control of your TV experience.

RECORD 8 SHOWS AT ONCE

So many great movies, sports and TV shows air each day. But what happens when more than one of your must-see programs airs at the same time? With the Hopper and Super Joeys, you can record up to 8 live shows at once during primetime, including ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC and 4 additional channels of your choice, so you never have to miss a moment of the action.
