It never fails: We record a family movie on TV and sit down to watch it altogether only to discover more than a few questionable commercials. There’s lots of shouting, “Fast forward. Close your eyes. Don’t look!”, which kinda takes away from the enjoyment of family movie night.
That to me is reason enough to look into Dish’s brand new offering: The Hopper.
With The Hopper, you actually get commercial-free TV! Now you can instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Only DISH gives you ad free TV with AutoHop on the Hopper.
But that’s not the only benefit!
You can also eliminate the need for other streaming services because DISH Anywhere lets you watch live and recorded TV — including live sporting events, TV shows and movies — anytime, anywhere. With Hopper Transfers, you can also transfer recordings to your iPad to watch even when you don’t have internet access.
We’ve paid to be able to wash NFL games when we’re away from home more than once, so this sounds like a moneysaver to me!
Although I love to read, there are also a few TV shows I really enjoy, and Sean has a few more that he likes as well. When those shows are scheduled up against one another in the evenings, it becomes a juggling act to see which ones we can record when. Our current DVR only allows us to record/watch two shows at a time, which sometimes means skipping a show we’d otherwise like to watch, but with PrimeTime Anytime, you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime, available to you for 8 days after they air.
And finally, with Whole-Home HD DVR Functionality, you can pause, rewind and record live TV in any room plus access your DVR library on every TV in your home! That means you can record a movie in the living room, start watching it in the bedroom and then finish in the kitchen!
So how much does this amazing device cost?! That’s the best part! It’s FREE with a DISH Network package starting at $24.99 with a 24-month commitment.
We’ve been pretty happy with our TV service, but I just copied this post and sent it to my husband with the note: “Worth a try?”
