Watch YouTube on TV

It's easy with your Hopper DVR and the integrated YouTube app.

How to Watch YouTube on TV

With hundreds of hours of video uploaded every minute, YouTube is an amazing resource. You could spend a lifetime watching cat videos alone. From DIY projects to music videos by your favorite artists, search for anything you're interested in. Viewers also have the ability to keep up on the latest Dish content from Dish Studio exclusives to tutorials on Dish technology. You can do it all from the comfort of your couch with YouTube on the DISH Hopper 3 or Hopper with Sling.

How to access YouTube on DISH

To open the YouTube App, navigate to the Apps screen on your Hopper by pressing Home and selecting Apps. Click on the YouTube tile and with just a few taps, you'll be able to browse and search to your heart's content. You can also navigate to Channel 371 in the guide to launch the app. For a more customized experience, you can sign into your YouTube account to watch videos from the YouTube channels you subscribe to and those that are specifically recommended for you.

Other apps on the Hopper

The DISH YouTube app is just one of several you can access with your DISH remote through the Hopper menus. There is also Netflix. We know that if you want to watch shows, you should be able to do it on your TV. And you should be able to do it seamlessly, without switching inputs or moving wires around. You'll find Pandora, too, and other DISH apps — all aimed at improving your TV watching experience.
