Dish To Offer Any Show At Any Time

Picture:

Satellite operator DISH Network is expected to unveil a new DVR at the CES convention in Las Vegas today (Monday) that will automatically record every primetime show on the four major television networks and hold them for later viewing for as long as two weeks. Multichannel.com, citing a since-deleted report on Dealerscope magazine's website (it focuses on information for consumer electronics retailers) said that the DVR, called Hopper, will sport 2 TBs (terabytes) of storage, half of which will be used to record programs on ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC airing between 8 00 p.m. and 11 00 p.m. nightly. Moreover, the DVRs will operate in conjunction with DISH's Sling box, making the programs available for remote viewing on laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Pricing for Hopper was not disclosed but may be included in the official announcement expected to be made at the CES convention in Las Vegas today. In a elated matter, DISH also announced the release of an iPad app for its Blockbuster @Home service (formerly Blockbuster Movie Pass), a streaming service that permits customers to access more than 100,000 movies, TV shows and games instantly.
