DISH Network Adds Pandora Music Streaming To Hopper

Pandora's Box just keeps getting wider and wider. As the famed music streaming service stretches to new places, DISH Network is hoping to garner a bit more attention to its own products. This week, DISH expanded its in-home music experience with Pandora, adding the radio service to the Hopper whole-home HD DVR system. Pandora on Hopper gives viewers the ability to search for artists / songs, and then create personalized radio stations that play only the music they love from the comfort of their homes.

DISH customers with a Hopper can login to their existing Pandora account, or create a new Pandora account, to stream their personalized radio stations through their television, but you'll definitely near a nearby internet connection to take advantage. Here's a bit more from the release:


"Pandora adds new dimension to the Hopper experience," said Vivek Khemka, vice president of product management at DISH. "This partnership is another example of how we are working to make Hopper the entertainment platform of choice for America's homes."

"We're thrilled that DISH is making Pandora available to their customers on a great new platform like the Hopper," said Ian Geller, vice president of Business Development at Pandora. "More than a third of all radio listening takes place in the home and Pandora delivered through the Hopper allows everyone in the family to easily access and enjoy music they love through their personalized radio stations."

DISH's Hopper features three satellite TV tuners and a two-terabyte hard drive that stores up to 2,000 hours of video. Accompanied by small, sleek Joey(TM) units, the Hopper enables customers to pause live TV in one room and continue watching in another room. DISH launched Hopper in March and it is available to both new and existing DISH customers.

In addition to Pandora, DISH's Hopper features apps that give viewers real-time access to Facebook, Twitter and photo sharing, as well as games, news, weather, sports and stock quotes.

I love using Dish's Hopper and I especially like using the Pandora app on the Hopper. I can enjoy listening to my favorite artist’s radio stations like Wiz Khalifa's on the TV! A Dish co-worker told me about Dish new feature that was just released yesterday that allows you to skip your PrimeTime Anytime shows commercials. I tried it out earlier this morning and when I watched CBS’s “CSI Miami” and it gave me the option to skip my commercials.

I don’t understand why CBS, FOX, & NBC execs don’t want us to enjoy commercial-free TV. I’m a DISH employee – AutoHop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group, is taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, & NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room & DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
