DISH's New Hopper Transfers App Delivers DVR Recordings to iPad for Offline Viewing
LAS VEGAS --(Business Wire)--
Today, DISH (NASDAQ: DISH) introduced the Hopper Transfers™ app, an
exclusive feature for the new Hopper™ with Sling® Whole-Home HD DVR that
lets customers move television recordings from the DVR to an iPad for
viewing without an Internet connection.

"Hopper Transfers completes the TV Everywhere equation by giving DISH
customers the ability to take their recorded television programs and
watch them even when no Internet connection is available, such as on a
plane," said Vivek Khemka, vice president of Product Management at DISH.
"For the first time, customers can truly enjoy their DISH service
With the Hopper Transfers app, customers can set up their Hopper with
Sling to prepare television recordings for mobile viewing. Recordings
are then transferred from Hopper to an iPad via the home's Wi-Fi
connection. Each mobile recording transferred features Digital Rights
Management technology and is limited to one mobile transfer per
recording. Once a recorded television program is finished encoding for
mobile viewing, a 30-minute program takes approxmately five minutes to
move to an iPad.
Other features include:
Ability to schedule transfers of single episodes or television series.
Parental locks that block or limit selected programming.
All the technology necessary to move television recordings from DVR to
iPad. No additional cords or adapters required.
The Hopper Transfers feature builds upon DISH's industry-leading TV
Everywhere solutions, including the Hopper with Sling, the new DISH
Anywhere app and the www.dishanywhere.com
online portal. These products allow DISH subscribers to access their
live TV and DVR television recordings on mobile devices over the
Internet. Live mobile viewing is enabled using Sling technology and is
now integrated into the new Hopper with Sling.
In conjunction with the release later this month of DISH's new Hopper
with Sling, the Hopper Transfers app will be available in Apple's (News - Alert) App
