You've heard the "Boston Guys" on the famous DISH Hopper commercials. But have you heard about the Hopper's latest offspring? During the annual Consumer Electronics Show, DISH announced its new Virtual Joey application in conjunction with LG Smart TVs. This new Virtual Joey app was developed for 2013 and 2014 LG Smart Tvs to enable the full Hopper HD DVR experience without the physical hardware of a typical Joey.
To take it back to DISH basics for a moment, the Hopper is the master unit for the Whole Home HD DVR system. Joey's are then small devices placed in additional rooms that power the HD DVR capabilities throughout your home. Ethernet wiring is needed for the Hopper- Joey system, so this new app gets around some limitations that installation with hard wired ethernet may impose, making it easier to hook up your system in any room.
You can get your hands on the new Virtual Joey with your Hopper system in early 2014, according to DISH. Read more and find out what DISH CEO, Joe Clayton, and LG Electronics VP, Sam Chang, had to say about the Virtual Joey and LG TV experience.
