I LOVE watching television. When I work daily from home I usually have the TV on. Sometimes it is just for background noise. But most times, I am watching a movie, binge watching a show, or catching up with the recordings on my DVR.
That last one is where the DISH HopperGO can help. Imagine being able to load up a portable device with up to 100 hours of programming of all of your favorite shows. This doesn’t impact the storage on your smartphone or tablet. Once loaded up, up to 5 different devices can connect to it at one time. This means that 5 family members can all stream their show to their personal mobile device in peace. No arguments!
This is also great for traveling alone. Usually, before I head off on a trip, I load up my tablet with shows or movies. However, space is limited. Being able to just grab the HopperGO means that I would have an endless amount of entertainment while in the airport, on a plane, and in my hotel room. All without impacting the space on my mobile device. And since it does not need an Internet connection, it is perfectly safe to use on a flight. Just put your phone or tablet in Airplane mode, turn on the WiFiI, and connect directly to your HopperGO.
100 Hours of Storage Space
This is huge! Think of the DISH HopperGO as a portable hard drive for all of your guilty pleasure TV shows. It encases 64GB of storage which is where your recordings live. 100 hours of storage means that you have plenty of space to store multiple seasons of your favorite shows to binge while on the road.
Built-in WiFi Network
The HopperGO broadcasts its own WiFi network to connect to your mobile devices, so even if you are without Internet you can still stream your shows. This is perfect for kids who may not have phones with data plans. They can bring along a tablet on a road trip, connect directly to the HopperGO WiFi network and stream away!
Connect Up to 5 Devices
The DISH HopperGO allows up to 5 family members to connect at one time, all watching something different!
Battery-Powered & Rechargeable
The HopperGO has a battery that lasts up to 4 hours. This means that you can even stream from the beach! And it can easily be recharged through any USB port. Keep it plugged in while in the car via a microUSB cord so that your entertainment is not interrupted by a dead battery. Then when it’s time to get out of the car, it’s fully charged and ready to go!
Using the DISH HopperGO
To load up your HopperGO with shows, simply plug it into your Hopper using the microUSB cable, then wait for the on-screen connection to complete. Next, install the DISH Anywhere app on your mobile device, follow the on-screen instructions and go!
