DISH announced a series of substantial upgrades to its Hopper and Joey set-top boxes during the CES consumer electronics show earlier this month. The upgrades span both hardware and software, including a variety of new features and improved technical specifications.One of the biggest upgrades is the addition of the 4K Ultra HD Joey to DISH’s lineup of devices. The new Joey, a first for pay-TV providers, will allow customers with 4K televisions to fully integrate their satellite TV service for the ultimate HD viewing experience.Ultra HD displays provide a significantly sharper picture than the current high-definition standard, delivering up to four-times as many pixels as a 1080p display. Customers should be wary, however. 4K television does not inherently mean better quality. A number of other factors, including the size of your TV and the distance you’re sitting from it, influence how sharp the picture actually appears.For tech-savvy customers or movie aficionados, the upgrade should be fairly enticing. The average television viewer likely won’t benefit from the better image quality until 4K becomes more readily available.
