Over the past decade, we’ve witnessed a dramatic change in viewership habits among U.S. consumers. In addition to watching television shows and movies on set-top boxes, Americans are increasingly turning to smartphones, tablets, streaming devices and computers to view their favorite video content. However, we all know switching between devices can be cumbersome.
DISH has simplified the way customers consume their favorite videos with the launch of YouTube on Hopper 3. Now you can seamlessly switch between watching TV and the Internet’s most popular videos without ever changing remotes or inputs – or leaving your couch.
Forget about crowding around your mobile devices with friends to laugh at the latest viral videos and trying to configure HDMI cords to your TV when you want to follow along with your favorite online workouts. You now have access to all available YouTube videos, including music and original content from creators across the globe, right on your Hopper.
YouTube joins several other apps and features that make Hopper 3 the ultimate entertainment hub, including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo, The Weather Channel and Hopper arcade.
**Update August 2017:
The Hopper 3 also features integration with Amazon’s Alexa, so you can control your TV with only your voice. If you are thinking about switching to DISH, for a limited time new customers will also receive a free Amazon Echo Dot to be used in their home. Learn more about our different TV packages here.
To access the YouTube app on Hopper 3, go to channel 371 in the DISH programming guide or select the “Apps” button on your remote control. You can also use the YouTube app on mobile devices to cast videos directly to your Hopper 3.
