DISH today announced that starting May 22, 2013, it will let new subscribers choose to receive an Apple iPad 2 instead of twelve month package discounts.
The promotion, which runs until September 18, 2013, is available to qualified new subscribers who get the Hopper HD DVR. The Hopper DVR has many features that go extremely well with the iPad 2, like the ability to watch live TV and recordings over Wifi, and the Hopper Transfers app that lets viewers download entire programs to an iPad or other tablet.
There are other free iPad apps that enhance the viewing experience with DISH and the Hopper. DISH Anywhere allows viewers to watch DISH TV and Hopper-recorded shows anywhere there is an internet connection. The DISH Explorer app turns an iPad into a powerful remote control that can browse DISH TV schedules and Hopper recordings, deliver live sports scores and other info, and connect to social networks to share recommendations with friends.
DISH introduced the newest version of the Hopper – the Hopper with Sling – at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show, where it was declared CES 2013 “Best of Show”. It is also a PCMag “Editors’ Choice” with a 5 out of 5 star review.
