Hopper DVR gets cool Sling upgrade

Dish Network has one of the best DVR on the market with its Hopper system. The coolest part about the Hopper DVR is that it can record all PrimeTime programs and automatically eliminate commercials. Dish has announced that it has updated its Hopper DVR with new technology from Sling.

The new Sling equipped Hopper DVR can move recorded television programs from the DVR to an iPad for viewing off-line. That means that TV fans can view programs off-line on the go without having to use data or have access to a network. The functionality is free and the app is available at no additional cost.

The technology also allows users to access their recorded shows and live TV programming from anywhere in the world using a compatible device. Dish says that a 30 min. recorded program takes approximately 5 min. to transfer to the iPad. The new Hopper DVR connects to an existing Wi-Fi network. The upgraded DVR will be available sometime this month.
