DISH Goes Crazy for March Madness with NCAA Updates to App and Hopper DVR

The NCAA Tournament is about to get pretty heated. There's definitely a few sports fans out there that will be unreachable (and inconsolable) for the next week or three. While many of you will be glued to the games, DISH Network is hoping that Hopper users will go mad for some of the company's new March Madness updates.

The DISH Network Hopper Whole-House DVR is a set-top with 2TB of storage and access to exclusive features such as PrimeTime Anytime and Auto Hop. (For more on those, check out our DISH Network Hopper Whole-House DVR Review.) The latest Hopper with Sling even adds Slingbox features inside the package. However, some of the lesser known features are perfect for the frothing March Madness fan.

First up is the Hopper's Game Finder. This on-screen sports app can display all of the Tournament's games on one screen. From there, you can opt to watch or record upcoming games -- all right from the app. DISH Network says that the company has upgraded the Game Finder's navigation and access to sports scores, adding in the ability to sort games by conference or even hide games that are blacked out in your area.

If you have an iPad, you're going to want to have the free DISH Explorer app loaded and ready to roll from the opening tip. DISH just added an NCAA Tournament tab right on the main screen. This allows viewers to check out upcoming games, times and channels, as well as set recordings. Users can also cheer (and jeer) with other sports fans via Twitter, right through the app.

Just so you don't get confused, know that the DISH Explorer provides access to favorite teams, recording options, and real-time updates. The DISH Anywhere app will allow you to take those games on the go, so you can watch live and recorded content from anywhere with a web connection. That includes tablets, smartphones and PCs. However, you're going to need the Hopper with a Sling Adapter or the new Hopper with Sling, which has the tech built right inside the box.

The 2013 NCAA Tournament is kicking off its second round today. The tournament will run for the next few weeks, with the Final Four wrapping things up at Atlanta's Georgia Dome from April 6-8, 2013.


Game Finder uses Thuuz technology to tank the excitement level of a game on a scale of 1-100.

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.
