Dish Adds YouTube App to Hopper 3 DVR Set Top Box
[Via Satellite 10-21-2016] Pay-TV satellite operator Dish has included the YouTube video app on its Hopper 3 Digital Video Recorder (DVR) Set-Top-Box (STB). The company included the app in a recent software update.
According to Dish, the company is the only nationwide pay-TV provider in the U.S. to deliver YouTube via an STB. YouTube joins several Hopper apps including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo and The Weather Channel.
“We designed Hopper 3 to be much more than a conventional set-top box,” said Niraj Desai, Dish vice president of product management. “By aggregating apps like YouTube and Netflix with live linear television, Hopper 3 is capable of serving as a household’s comprehensive entertainment hub.”
