    At the 2012, CES show, we ushered in a while new era of home entertainment with the introduction of the Hopper, Clayton says
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:04:06 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:04:15 PM
    More importantly, this consumer friendly product was available at a cost effective price, Clayton says. Now, all the other pay TV providers are trying to play catch up. At Dish, we keep setting the bar higher
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:04:24 PM
    Provide customers with the best video experience, period, Clayton says
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:04:31 PM
    There are now 4 Joeys: standard Joey (2X zippier), Wireless Joey, Super Joey, and Virtual Joey (app).
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:04:48 PM
    CES 2013, another coup with Hopper with Sling. This CES, Best of Show product. Hearing no objections, I guess it's official.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:05:11 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:05:18 PM
    Today at this year's CES show, we will directly address the customer's third major requirement in buying decisions, ease of use, Clayton says (previous post was his comment as well)
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:05:32 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:05:32 PM
    Today we introduce with great fanfare, the Super Joey.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:05:53 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:06:04 PM
    Now you may ask what makes Dish's Super Joey so super. This product has been endowed with such powers
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:06:11 PM
    2 extra tuners in Super Joey.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:06:19 PM
    Super Joey when paired with award winning Hopper, gives customers the ability to record up to 8 programs at one time
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:06:36 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:06:40 PM
    This is all made possible with the combination of five tuners, Clayton says
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:06:58 PM
    I can now binge watch 8 different programs at one time...
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:06:59 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:07:08 PM
    For American consumers, say goodbye to channel conflict, Clayton says. Those of you who have a bunch of kids like I do know what I'm talking about
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:07:55 PM
    We've also significantly enhanced our user interface. Hundreds of channels, over 20K channels and TV shows available on Dish today. We've greatly simplified, Clayton says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:08:22 PM
    We've also enhanced the customer discovery experience. Voice activation that can even understand a Southern accent, Clayton says (playing up his drawl)
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:08:35 PM
    Hopper, Super Joey, and the original Joey are now being joined by the Virtual Joeys and Wireless Joey.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:08:51 PM
    Sony Playstation Joey. Smart TV Joey provided by manufacturers such as LG. And soon, the wireless Joey.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:09:08 PM
  • Kent German 1/6/2014 7:09:10 PM
    Dish already made an announcement at CES, it will bring its services to LG smart TVs with Virtual Joey
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:09:19 PM
    Virtual Joey coming to PS3/PS4 -- new app for Playstation game consoles delivers Dish service to secondary rooms without a box.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:09:22 PM
    Where is all of this incredible, fast-paced, technical innovation leading Dish, Clayton says.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:10:06 PM
    I believe our Hopper product has evolved from a plain set top box to a piece of equipment rapidly becoming the hub of the home. For digital video on the go as well. Soon, it will be able to monitor certain household functions and home automation capabilities down the road, Clayton says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:10:37 PM
    We're going to hear strategy of consumer market, demo of new products, how going to communicate about product, Clayton says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:10:50 PM
    Dave Shull, EVP and chief commercial officer, takes the stage
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:10:56 PM
    Reference to Hopper (hub) providing home automation features in the future. Look for them at CES 2015 or 2016. (That's my quote, not Clayton's).
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:11:08 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:11:13 PM
    2014 is the year Hopper graduates from being simply the best DVR and goes into a whole new category as a supercharged hub, Shull says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:11:23 PM
    We think about customers, not just technology for technology's sake, Shull says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:11:31 PM
    Now playing video of Dish customers talking about the product
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:11:44 PM
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:12:05 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:12:22 PM
    That sums it up, momma's got a new toy. As a married man, that's the best endorsement I can get, Shull says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:12:34 PM
    6 million devices connected to Hopper or Joey
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:12:49 PM
    What's next for Hopper? People love b/c it's affordable, available anywhere, and easy to use.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:13:15 PM
    Average US household watches TV about 35 hours per week. That far out shadows the 1.5 hours they spend per week watching online videos, Shull says.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:13:16 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:13:30 PM
    Once you have a DVR, you never go back. Why is that? It changes the way you watch TV. It gives you control of your TV, Shull says
