Dish’s Hopper Duo supports a second HD TV when paired with a Joey (Joey, 4K Joey or Wireless Joey). Because the Hopper Duo features two tuners, viewers can watch or record two live programs at the same time. And, if a customer is recording two live shows they can still watch any On Demand content or recorded content from their DVR.
“The average US home has about two TVs connected to a pay-TV service,” said Niraj Desai vice DISH vice president of product management. “Hopper Duo is a feature-rich, high-value product for households that want DVR capacity for only one or two screens.”
What does it cost? Customers who order the Hopper Duo system must pay a whole-home DVR fee of $10 per month and an additional $7 per month for an added Joey.
