DISH Adds YouTube App to Hopper 3

The app was added through the company's latest firmware update. While the Hopper 3's Netflix app supports playback of Ultra HD content, the new YouTube app does not.

From DISH
The YouTube app has debuted on DISH's Hopper 3 DVR, bringing viral videos and original content from creators across the globe to the TV screen via set-top box. DISH customers can now access their favorite TV shows and the Internet's most popular videos without changing inputs or devices.

The YouTube app was included in DISH's latest software update pushed to Hopper 3 set-top boxes last night. With this update, DISH becomes the only nationwide pay-TV provider in the U.S. to deliver YouTube via set-top box. YouTube joins several Hopper apps that together bring a range of entertainment options to customers, including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo and The Weather Channel.

"We designed Hopper 3 to be much more than a conventional set-top box," said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. "By aggregating apps like YouTube and Netflix with live linear television, Hopper 3 is capable of serving as a household's comprehensive entertainment hub."

Users watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube every day, generating billions of views. DISH customers can now search, browse and play videos, as well as log into their YouTube and YouTube Red accounts, directly on a Hopper 3.

The YouTube app on Hopper 3 can be accessed from channel 371 or by selecting the "Apps" button on the remote control. Customers can also use the YouTube app on mobile devices to cast videos directly to their Hopper 3.
