I am gearing up to kick off my holiday gift guide next week and was going to start the week with a post a about DISH, after having yet another amazing customer service experience with this wonderful pay-TV provider, which I have had the privilege of partnering with for almost two years now. I was going to talk about all their wonderful channel line ups, the Hopper 3 DVR which I shared about a few months and even their streaming service, and how DISH would make a great family gift. Like this wasn't enough. But, leave it to them to go and release the YouTube app this past Friday to make being a DISH subscriber even more rewarding. With the addition to this app, available to DISH’s Hopper 3 DVR, it will let you bring viral videos and original content from creators across the globe to your TV screen via set-top box. DISH customers can now access their favorite TV shows and the Internet’s most popular videos without changing inputs or devices.
More about the YouTube App Debut on DISH's Hopper 3 DVR...
"The YouTube app was included in DISH’s latest software update pushed to Hopper 3 set-top boxes last night. With this update, DISH becomes the only nationwide pay-TV provider in the U.S. to deliver YouTube via set-top box. YouTube joins several Hopper apps that together bring a range of entertainment options to customers, including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo and The Weather Channel.
“We designed Hopper 3 to be much more than a conventional set-top box,” said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “By aggregating apps like YouTube and Netflix with live linear television, Hopper 3 is capable of serving as a household’s comprehensive entertainment hub.”
Users watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube every day, generating billions of views. DISH customers can now search, browse and play videos, as well as log into their YouTube and YouTube Red accounts, directly on a Hopper 3.
The YouTube app on Hopper 3 can be accessed from channel 371 or by selecting the “Apps” button on the remote control. Customers can also use the YouTube app on mobile devices to cast videos directly to their Hopper 3."
If you have been looking to make a switch when it comes to your pay-TV provider, why not consider DISH? My family has fallen in love with DISH and will never go back to old TV providers, who lacked customer service and never offered new and innovative programming and services. Since being with DISH we have experienced new channels being added monthly, new DVR capabilities, updated remotes and headphones and so much more. I could go on and on about DISH, but I make you wait for my post next week. Just wanted to make sure you knew about the YouTube App if you were a current DISH subscriber.
