Dish and LG Bring Hopper Experience to LG Smart TVs

Dish Network and LG have announced a tie up at CES 2014 today. The partnership brings a software-based virtual Joey tuner to certain LG smart TVs. The dish software will be available on all 2013 and 2014 LG Smart TVs. The app can be used instead of a hardware Joey box helping to improve the availability of Hopper service in a home.

“Television placement is so often dictated by where the set-top box can be and where the wires are – this new application literally unleashes the TV,” said Joseph P. Clayton, DISH president and CEO. “Together, we are giving our customers more choice and control over their entire television experience.”

LG and Dish says that the software based Joey on the LG smart TV has a virtually identical experience as a normal Joey tuner. The app offers access to the whole home DVR content, live TV, and navigation of the electric program guide. The app is expected to launch in Q1 2014.

“By offering DVR capability directly through LG’s Smart TV platform, DISH’s Virtual Joey app gives consumers even more options to customize their viewing experience. Our collaboration with DISH is consistent with our philosophy of making Smart TV simple and more intuitive,” said Sam Chang, vice president in charge of the LG Electronics Silicon Valley Lab, which developed LG’s new webOS Smart TV platform.
