Did You Hear?...The DISH Hopper Duo Smart DVR Now Supports Netflix - Another Reason to Switch to DISH Today!

Earlier this year, DISH launched their newest DVR, the Hopper Duo, which was designed to deliver a tailored, modern TV experience for households with one or two TVs. Yesterday, DISH shared the great news that many Hopper Duo customers have been waiting for... they expanded Hopper Duo’s capabilities by integrating Netflix. Woohoo!  You know you can't live without Netflix like my family.  And, now you don't have to fuss with cords or toggling between inputs to get to Netflix on your television.  
With Netflix on Hopper Duo, you can now catch up on award-winning Netflix originals like The Crown, Bright and Stranger Things within one seamless interface without switching inputs or adding different cords. Stay comfy on the couch while simply launching the Netflix service straight from Hopper Duo.  I love how DISH offers such easy access to popular apps and services, right from their seamless interface menu. I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to watch Netflix and can't find the remote as it is has gone missing.  And, if it isn't the remote, I find out that our streaming device is unplugged and I don't want to get up and fuss with the cables, so I give up on watching Netflix.  Thanks to this news from DISH, I will not have to worry about this anymore, as I don't have to leave my Hopper to access Netflix. Great news, right? :-)
To access Netflix from your Hopper Duo, press the “Home” button on the remote and select the Netflix icon, or tune to channel 370 in the DISH programming guide. A subscription to Netflix is required to watch Netflix content.
More about the Hopper Duo, which DISH began offering in January of this year...
Th Hopper Duo is a dual-tuner HD set-top solution for one- and two-TV households. Hopper Duo packages the most essential features of DISH's award-winning Hopper 3 for customers with smaller-scale entertainment setups.

DISH's new Hopper Duo set-top box features the Hopper user interface and voice technology compatibility.
The Wi-Fi-capable Hopper Duo includes the modern Hopper user interface with HD graphics and easy content discovery; a 500 GB hard drive for up to 125 hours of HD DVR recording; compatibility with Amazon Alexa voice control; universal search; Bluetooth audio support via adapter; Picture-in-Picture viewing; Remote Finder; and apps like Game Finder, Pandora and DISH On-Demand, with Netflix coming soon. Hopper Duo ships with DISH's new voice remote.

Hopper Duo supports a second HDTV when paired with a Joey (Joey, 4K Joey or Wireless Joey). With two tuners, Hopper Duo customers can watch or record two live programs simultaneously. If a customer is recording two live shows, they can still watch previously recorded titles from their DVR or anything from the OnDemand catalog.
Currently, qualified new and existing customers can receive a Hopper Duo at no upfront cost. The Hopper Duo system requires a whole-home DVR fee of $10 per month, with an additional $7 per month required for an added Joey.
