    Just like Xbox and directv.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:32:30 PM
    Now adds on "show me movies without Brad Pitt." It kept the Angelina Jolie setting on, so it's Angelina Jolie movies without Brad Pitt (so no Mr and Mrs Smith showing up)
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:32:49 PM
    Gives me complete control of my live TV, my DVR, and all of my VOD content, Khemka says
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:33:02 PM
    Second screen apps...
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:33:06 PM
    Want to integrate what do with Web and social with web experience, Khemka says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:33:37 PM
    Apps from developers for Hopper such as home automation, Buddy TV (to get info about shows watching, schedule recordings, etc).
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:34:01 PM
    You can do a lot with your Hopper via Buddy TV. Haven't used it myself.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:34:09 PM
    Can record 8 shows at once while simultaneously watching four recorded shows using wireless Joey (etc). All this can be happening simultaneously, Khemka.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:34:19 PM
    Only with the Hopper can you do all of these
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:34:32 PM
    Another feature is can store 2,000 hours of recordings
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:34:48 PM
    I wish FIOS had some of these features ;)
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:34:59 PM
    Khemka puts on Google Glass.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:35:07 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:35:11 PM
    (I kind of wondered how much we'd see Glass show up here)
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:35:23 PM
    Can use Glass to schedule recordings to the Hopper
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:35:34 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:35:34 PM
    James Moorhead, CMO, takes the stage
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:35:43 PM
    Ok, he just ruined presentation with Google Glass -- he's using it to schedule recordings.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:35:57 PM
    As Joe said earlier today, this is a new Dish, and it's attracting a totally new, high quality customer, the customer we call the enthusiast, Moorhead earlier
  • dare2be 1/6/2014 7:36:15 PM
    Not true, it just has to be 4 of the big networks, but you can record them simultaneously using only 1 tuner any time of day.
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:36:20 PM
    People who are much more tech savvy, higher income, media engaged families. Constantly connected and constantly on the go, Moorhead says
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:36:32 PM
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:36:47 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:36:53 PM
    Firmly established Dish as a leader of innovation and technology in minds, Moorhead says
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:37:09 PM
    Boston guys from ad are here...
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:37:14 PM

  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:37:25 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:37:38 PM
    Hopper awareness rising to 61%. More than double DirectTV Genie at 27%
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:37:48 PM
    LIkely to recommend Hopper is up 40% this year
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:37:51 PM
    They don't look like people you'd really want to hang out with.
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:37:55 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:38:12 PM
    Dish offers simply the best experience at home and on the go, Moorhead says
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:38:43 PM
    You heard about our new Virtual Joeys and partnership with LG and Sony. In addition to these brands, two huge partnerships with Southwest Airlines and Apple. Uniquely designed to delight the enthusiast
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:38:49 PM
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:39:13 PM
    A plane ticket, an iPad, and a Hopper create simply the best, on-the-go mobile viewing experience in the world, Moorhead says

    Since May of 2013, we've had an exclusive partnership with Apple
  • Shara Tibken 1/6/2014 7:41:15 PM
    Our partnership with Apple is paying dividends for the Dish brand. 60% of people who take iPad say have more positive view of Dish b/c of it. On average, each person tells five others about the deal, Moorhead says
  • James Martin 1/6/2014 7:41:26 PM
  • David Carnoy 1/6/2014 7:41:38 PM
    It's amazing what people will do for a free iPad.
