The Basics of the Dish Hopper
The Hopper is Dish Network’s newest DVR system, allowing users to save up to 2,000 hours of television, and view their content anywhere around the house, and even out of the house on mobile devices.
Skipping Commercials with AutoHop
The most controversial feature of the Hopper is its ability to skip ads automatically in certain primetime shows. If a show has a red kangaroo, it’s AutoHop ready.
Record Up to 6 Primetime Shows at Once
Hopper has an exclusive PrimeTime Anytime feature that allows you to record up to 6 different shows at the same time during primetime from ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC.

The Hopper allows you to take your TV programming with you anywhere. On your laptop, smartphone, or tablet you can watch your DVR recordings or On Demand channels.
There are many small features, like a ringing remote. Just press the button on the Hopper and the remote will ring until you find it. Also, if you have a 3D TV you can watch the latest 3D movies.
