watch two channels side by side

Learn how to use your Hopper’s side-by-side feature to simultaneously watch two programs on one TV. This is perfect for those of you who can’t decide between multiple sporting events airing at the same time; and it’ll be especially handy during the upcoming college football bowl games. Just select the two games you’d like to watch, and pull them up on your TV, side by side. Now that’s what we call multitasking.

  1. Press the PIP button on your remote control. (Note that PIP stands for picture-in-picture).

  2. Arrow to the SIDE BY SIDE option and press the SELECT button.
  3. Two channels will display on your TV as seen below.
