Dish Network announced today their Hopper 3 DVR now supports Netflix streaming in 4k, just a day after competitor DirecTV launched three new dedicated 4k channels. The new support for 4k streams may be superfluous for most new Smart Ultra HD TVs, as Netflix usually comes as a standard app channel within the OS. Still though, support for Netflix 4k is a plus for Dish subscribers and may give their 4k PPV service, with titles from Sony, The Orchard and Mance Media, a bit of a push.

Dish subscribers with the Hopper 3 DVR can find Netflix by pressing “Home” or “App” on their remotes and selecting the Netflix app icon. Alternatively, access to Netflix can be found on DISH Channel 370.

To get Netflix streams in 4k, Netflix customers need to be subscribed to the $11.99 per month plan that allows Ultra HD and viewing on up to four screens at once. Watching Netflix in 4k for the first time? Here’s a guide to streaming Ultra HD titles on Netflix.

Netflix titles in 4k Ultra HD include the feature film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, Netflix Original Series House of Cards and Marvel’s Daredevil among other 4k content.

Dish’s Hopper 3, revealed at CES this year, supports native 4K support, outputs 60 frames per second, and supports 10-bit color through a quad-core ARM processor. Dish claims the Hopper 3 is seven-times more powerful than Hopper 2.
