Entertainment to go
There are creatures who have adapted to travel with everything they need. Camels store water in their humps. Turtles carry shelter on their backs. This is an area in which humans, evolutionarily speaking, are lacking. Unfortunately, we have not yet evolved to a point where everything we need to travel is just there for us. That is particularly true of entertainment. The movies and shows we would like to watch do not come loaded on our brains. Maybe one day. Until then, there is HopperGO.
HopperGO is a small black box half the size of your smartphone with 64 gigs of storage space. It can hold 100 hours of TV. And you can stream it on up to 5 devices by connecting to the wifi network each HopperGO creates.
So when you take a trip—say, for spring break—you can bring your entertainment with you. Whether you want movies for a car trip or to spend an entire week watching TV on a remote island beach, you can do that. Seriously. Go ahead. Spend a week watching TV on a remote island beach. You will not regret it.
Since 100 hours is a lot of hours, we’ll get you started. Here are 16 things you can record tomorrow to take on the road with you. (Remember, you can record 16 channels at once with the Hopper 3 DVR.) They’ll set the scene for a spring break road trip rather perfectly.
