Dish’s upcoming Hopper 3 is one turbo-charged, feature-packed DVR. Not only does it have 16 tuners and Netflix integration in its universal search results, but there’s a new proprietary “Sports Bar Mode” that allows you to play four live HD channels simultaneously on one 4K screen. The thing is fast, too. Powered by the Broadcom 7445, a quad-core Arm processor, the company says the new DVR operates at seven times the speed of Hopper 2. It’s got 2 terabytes of internal storage, enough to save up to 500 hours of HD content, and is the first DVR to use USB 3.0 connectivity for external storage expansion, which allows for 10x faster transfer speeds. Or, you can watch Netflix, which is integrated into the Hopper 3 and even its universal search. YouTube is coming later this year to do the same thing. Watch Netflix, play games, or listen to Pandora. Hopper 3 is packed with tons of apps for everyone in your family. If you can think it, you can find it. Look up titles and actors across your channel lineup, recorded programs, Netflix, and On Demand shows with just one search. Hopper Remote with Voice coming soon. With built-in 4K support, you can watch a variety of On Demand movies, shows and Netflix in 4K quality. Hopper 3 has all of your favorite features from Hopper and Hopper with Sling, plus new features you’re sure to love. Allows additional USB external storage. -The Best of CES 2016, Best Home Theater Gear-PC Magazine -CES Editors’ Choice- Reviewed.com -“The Hopper 3 Is the Most Ludicrously Powerful Cable Box Ever”-Wired.com
