Dish Network announced this week that it's adding yet another essential streaming app to its popular Hopper 3 DVR in the form of Amazon Prime Video. Like the platform's Netflix app, the Amazon Prime Video app will support 4K video, for those who have a compatible TV.
Read on for full details from the press release below:
DISH today released the Amazon Prime Video app on Hopper 3, expanding its streaming content options on the award-winning DVR. Amazon Prime complements the existing DISH experience by allowing customers to instantly stream their favorite Amazon Originals, including "Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan" and Emmy Award-winning "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," from the same platform as their DISH TV programming.
"Amazon Prime Video on Hopper gives our customers the most seamless way to access the content they already know and love," said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV. "Rather than switching between inputs, devices or even remotes to watch Prime Video, our customers get the convenience of having all of their programming in one place, providing more value to the Hopper 3 experience."
To access the Prime Video app, users can say "Launch Prime Video" into the DISH voice remote or launch the experience via the guide on channel 301.
"We're committed to providing customers with the best viewing experience possible and that means giving them even more ways to watch Prime Video," said Andrew Bennett, director of worldwide business development for Amazon Prime Video. "With Prime Video now available on Hopper 3, we are making it easy for even more DISH customers to immediately start enjoying their favorite TV shows and movies on Prime Video."
Prime Video is available to all Hopper 3 customers and accessible via the app menu or DISH voice remote. Amazon's 4K content is also available to Hopper 3 customers with a 4K TV.
Amazon Prime joins DISH's catalog of integrated video streaming options, including Netflix, YouTube and YouTube Kids.
