Dish Hopper DVR System Offers Basketball Fans Sweet App Updates

 |  |  |  |  |  March 22, 2013

Every year at the end of March, basketball fans go crazy as the March Madness collegiate basketball tournaments kick off to find the top team in all the land. I know several people who take off the entire week just so they can sit home and watch basketball games all day. If you can’t take that type of time off, and have the Dish Hopper DVR in your home, you will love this.


Dish Network has announced some cool upgrades to improve its Hopper DVR and second screen viewing experience. Their updated Hopper Apps now have a Game Finder to display all of the games on one easy to navigate page. Viewers can also tune in to watch a specific game or record current games or future games directly from the app.

The Hopper app also offers faster navigation and access to scores for other games. Fans can also hide games that are blacked out in their area. The Dish Explore app for the iPad has also been updated, and features a dedicated NCAA Tournament tab on the main screen. That tab allows basketball fans to see upcoming games, times, and channels. The app also allows fans to record the games from the same page. The updated apps are available now.
