DISH Hopper with Sling Whole-House HD DVR Now Shipping

At last month's International CES in Las Vegas, DISH Network took home the coveted "Best of Show" honors with the introduction of its latest and greatest whole-house HD DVR, the Hopper with Sling. That announcement came with its share of controversy. Now, you can see what the hubbub is about for yourself; the Colorado-based satellite TV provider just announced the device's availability nationwide.

The original Hopper was released exactly one year ago and has since received plenty of accolades. (Read our DISH Network Hopper Whole-House DVR Review for more of those.) However, the new Hopper with Sling has built-in Slingbox features -- in case you couldn't tell by the product's title. That means that you no longer need the add-on Sling Adapter. Instead, subscribers can stream live and recorded content from the new Hopper with Sling box to any web-enabled tablet, smartphone or computer. That option works from anywhere in the world, via the DISH Anywhere app.

The box also has a new feature called Hopper Transfers. This may be a reason to finally go out and buy that Apple iPad. That's because the perk allows users to move content from the DVR to an iPad for viewing offline.

Other improvements include a Broadcom 7425 processor and a 2TB hard drive, which can store up to 500 hours of HD (or 2000 hours of SD) recordings. It also has built-in WiFi, new apps, and the ability to "fling" photos, music and videos from a mobile device.

The Hopper with Sling did carry over a few very important features, including PrimeTime Anytime and AutoHop commercial-skipping features. That PrimeTime Anytime perk allows users to program the DVR to record content airing on all four of the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX) during primetime hours, seven days a week.

"The magic of Hopper with Sling is that it redefines how customers think about their pay-TV experience," said Joe Clayton, DISH president and CEO. "No other provider can offer the experience that is now available to our customers anytime, anywhere."

The new Hopper Transfers feature allows subscribers to move DVR content directly to an iPad for viewing offline viewing.

According to DISH, new customers subscribing to the company's America's Top 200 or DishLATINO Dos programming packages or greater can receive one Hopper and up to three Joey units for free, which includes standard professional installation. Just know that the Hopper system requires a whole-home DVR fee of $10 per month, as well as an additional $7 per month for each Joey.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
