DISH Network’s Hopper 3 System starts at $299 (plus shipping) brand new from Amazon. However, qualified new and existing customers can receive one Hopper 3 at no upfront cost. The DISH Hopper 3 system does require a whole-home DVR fee of $15 per month and an additional $7 per month for each Joey—this offer does include the 4k Joey; however, the Super Joey will run subscribers $10 per month.
The Hopper 3 is arguably the most powerful home DVR on the market, and hosts a slew of features that make it a joy a to use. The DVR boasts up to 2,000 hours of recording space, the most storage space available on any DVR on the market.
Not a fan of commercials? The Hopper 3 has AutoHop, which automatically skips past any commercials in your recorded content, for select primetime programming. Seriously, once you have experience this feature you won’t be able to stand watching TV without it—it’s that good.
Do you lose the remote often? We certainly used to, but the Hopper 3 makes lost remotes a thing of the past. If you can’t find it, just click a button on the Hopper 3 itself and it will cause your remote to start loudly beeping and flashing a light to help you locate it.
Do you have a family or roommates? The Hopper 3 was built to solve one of television’s most common problems—conflicts! The Hopper 3 can record up to 16 different shows at once; that’s double what their closest competitor can do!
The DISH Hopper 3 also makes finding the show you want to watch easier than ever with its built in voice control. Just talk into the Hopper remote and it will search your channel guide, recorded content, on-demand content and Netflix!
While the Hopper 3 is a bit expensive a-la-carte, it is incredibly affordable (see free) with the right DISH Network plan! As the most powerful home DVR on the market, the Hopper is definitely worth the investment.
