Skip Those TV Commercials with Dish TV Hopper

DISH Network turned the whole home DVR industry on its collective ear with its new Hopper DVR.

Whether you’re a DISH Network subscriber who hasn’t made the move yet, or subscribe to some other television programming system, the Hopper DVR comes with an impressive array of features, advantages, and benefits all designed to change the way you and your family watch television at home.

The Most Storage

If you’re currently a DVR user, then you’re in for a real treat with the Hopper DVR because you’ve probably been quite frustrated with the lack of recording space, arbitrarily having recorded programs deleted to make space for new recordings, and having to make choices about what to save when you really want to record a new program without the necessary space.

With the Hopper DVR you can kiss all those problems goodbye.

The Hopper DVR comes standard with a 2TB hard drive. This means you can record up to 2,000 hours of standard-definition or 1,000 hours of HD programming.

The Hopper DVR delivers the storage space you’ve always wanted but simply wasn’t available until now.

Connect with a Joey

Part of the appeal of a whole home DVR system is reducing the amount of full-featured electronics you need attached to your home theater system.

The Joey satellite receivers provide access to the Hopper from up to three separate television, and offer complete control over the DVR.

From each Joey, viewers can set up recordings, and watch recorded content with the ability to pause, fast-forward, rewind, and delete, alleviating the need for a recording device attached on each separate television.

Primetime Anytime

Primetime programming is all about getting the most viewers tuning into any given program. As a result, television networks air their most popular shows during the three hours leading up to your late local news.

This means the chances exist for viewing conflicts during primetime broadcasting. Fortunately, DISH Network developed Primetime Anytime and made it available on the Hopper DVR.

Now, you can record up to six primetime shows nightly on ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, ensuring that everyone in your home will get to see their favorite shows.

Additionally, the recordings are stored as On-Demand programs, preserving your hard drive space and remaining available for viewing for up to eight days.

If the new Hopper DVR only offered Primetime Anytime it would be worth the $10 DISH Network charges for the entire range of features and benefits offered.

Auto Hop Feature

Auto Hop Feature

Dish has recently added a new feature called auto-hop that allows customers to skip over commercials at their leisure.  The new feature that has Dish customers smiling from ear to ear has caused quite the stir amongst the major networks.

Dish has been sued by three networks: Fox, NBC, and CBS and has in turn sued Fox, NBC, CBS and ABC.  There has not been any recent updates on this case yet.

Additional Services and Features

We live in a connected world, which means more and more devices offer access to the internet and some of the hottest social media sites out there, including Facebook and Twitter.

The new Hopper DVR is no different, and with a broadband internet connection offers a host of additional features from the World Wide Web.

By running an Ethernet cable from your internet router to the RJ-45 Ethernet port on the back of the Hopper, you open up access to news from MSNBC, financial news from CNBC, and immediate local weather reports from the Weather Channel.

Subscribers also have access to Blockbuster @ Home for access to an additional 25,000 movies, television shows, and special-interest programs, making the whole home solution from DISH Network.

Top mobile apps for music downloads

The way in which music has been recorded and listened to has changed over the period of a century and a half. First there were cylinder recordings, then the phonograph, then the audio cassette, ten the CD—and now the countless recordings, both old and new, that can be listened to on YouTube, Grooveshark, MySpace and other websites. Countless apps have also been designed for people to download the music that they like and listen to it over and over again, all the while “on the go.” I will describe some of the top ones here, and leave it to you to judge which is the kind for you. Just remember that you will need your headphones to listen to it!

Grooveshark Mobile

I mentioned Grooveshark among the music downloading websites above. On such sites the user can organize his songs into playlists to make them easier to find—I myself have playlists for country, bluegrass, oldies, rock music, rap music, ragtime and jazz, Spanish-language music, folk music and many others. With the mobile app, available at mobile.grooveshark.com and compatible with the Palm, Nokia, Blackberry, iPhone and other Android devices, you can take that music with you and “experience music without borders.” (The Nokia platform, though, is no longer in active development.)

Rhapsody

Unlike YouTube and Grooveshark, Rhapsody is a service that you have to subscribe to, at a cost of $5 per month, and is available in the United States only. Their mobile app have also been created and is available at http://www.rhapsody.com/what-is-rhapsody/where/mobileapps.html for a free trial. If you are a member, then you can download the music directly to your phone.

Music Oasis

Music from this site can be heard in high quality. No purchase or registration in necessary and no restrictions apply. All the recordings are in the forms of mp3s. The app can be downloaded from http://www.music-oasis.com/download/Audio/Music-Oasis/?f=WTy8ubMkS&a=6591&adid=14741169320.

Google Play

The Android Market has recently been acquired by Google and taken on the new name of Google Play. You can get millions of songs and channels free of advertisements, but you need a premium subscription. You can view new releases and search for songs in the collection or in your library. May be downloaded at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sony.snei.mu.phone&hl=en.

Other apps are also marketed at Google Play, including Royal Hip Hop, from the world’s number one site for rap and hip hop music (99¢), and Mobion Music Premium, where you can create your own functions and add them to your playlist, create karaoke lyrics and use a music auto-correct feature to make any corrections to your music data.

Freeware Pocket PC

A number of apps may be acquired from freewarepocketpc.net. One is Open Web Radio, on which you can listen to Internet radio in almost any country in the world. More than 7,000 stations are included. The modern version includes corrections to errors from the previous one. Open Web Radio has received a rating of three and a half stars.

Elephy Engine, whose logo is an elephant, lets you search for mp3 files online with its search engine, to which the app’s makers are currently trying to add more sites. All sites are sought for the desired file so that you can have it within a second! This will save you a great deal of time going from one site to another in search of something that you want to hear. Rating: two and a half stars.

SciLorsGrooveMobile, currently in its alpha version, is also a Grooveshark application for Windows Mobile. Both local and online playlists are included.

Many music storeowners are concerned about the proliferation of music downloads. They fear that it is bad for their business. Why buy CDs from a store when you can get their contents for free online? The local music storeowner in my hometown has a sign behind him on the wall that says, “SAY NO TO DOWNLOADS.” I really think that downloads are a great thing to have—after all, you only get want you want and if you dislike something, no money has been wasted.
