Record 6 Different Shows At Once. WHAT!? Check Out The Hopper From Dish

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of DISH for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


5 years ago… the NEED to record multiple televiision shows at once was not a major priority for most. Today, it's something my husband and I would shed blood over. 

"No… I like THIS show more than you like that show. So, I should be able to record my show during that time slot!!"

It gets ugly folks. 🙂

Now add my two children into the mix. I can't tell you how many times my shows have been bumped because my daugher desperately wanted to record one of her favorite cartoons. 

Need a solution?

DISH is a leader in satellite TV and has something amazing to offer to its customers called 'The Hopper'.  The Hopper™ is a Whole-Home HD DVR available only from DISH. Only the Hopper lets you watch live and recorded TV anywhere and instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Plus, you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite shows.

Let me say that again…. you can record 6 DIFFERENT SHOWS AT ONCE. Holla if you hear me!

Can you imagine? I certainly can't! That would end so many fights. LOL! No matter what television you are in front of… no matter whether or not you want to watch live television vs. a recorded program, The Hopper has you covered.

I know what you are thinking. This feature is probably pricey. Well, it's not! Get the Hopper™ free when you sign up for DISH. Packages starting at $24.99. (For 12 months with 24 month commitment. Restrictions Apply.) 

I don't know what I'm more excited about – the ability to record 6 shows at once OR the ability to skip commercials instantly by using "AutoHop". The Hopper would certainly put out a lot of fires in this household. And to think… my 5 year old hasn't really started having much of an opinion on programming yet. In a year's time, it's going to get VERY messy for us all. 

Here are some HOPPER FEATURES (New Features Available 2/11/13 only from DISH):

NEW — DISH Anywhere™ – Never miss watching your favorite team or program again by transforming your smartphone, tablet or computer into a portable TV.

    My family sounds a lot like yours, Vera. Between my wife, my son, and the fact that I work nights at DISH, my shows rarely got recorded on our old DVR. Now we have a DISH Hopper that records up to 6 shows at a time; we never fight about TV anymore and I finally get to go home and relax with my favorite shows.
