DISH recognized for continuing to revolutionize the TV-viewing
experience with its new Virtual Joey
Virtual Joey is a software application that delivers the DISH Hopper® Whole-Home HD DVR experience on 2013 and 2014 LG Smart TVs, and Sony PlayStation® 3 and PlayStation® 4 devices. The app can be used instead of DISH’s hardware-based Joey, increasing installation options where coaxial or Ethernet wiring may be difficult to access.
“Virtual Joeys make in-home installation almost limitless, giving customers the ability to access Hopper in any room without extra components or wires,” said
As with a hardware-based Joey, the software-based clients provide access to Hopper content, including live TV, recordings, video-on-demand programs and navigation of the electronic program guide.
Virtual Joey was selected as Best of CES 2014: Best Video Product by an expert panel of Engadget’s editorial staff who evaluate innovation, design, market value and functionality across 15 different categories. Winners were also selected in the following categories: startup, digital health and fitness, automotive electronics, audio, software, emerging, mobile, gaming, offbeat, kid-friendly, maker-friendly, PC, Best of the Best and People’s Choice.
Last year, DISH’s Hopper® Whole-Home HD DVR was awarded the “Best of Show” distinction under the “Best of CES” awards program for the 2013 International CES.
Availability of the Virtual Joey apps will be announced in the first quarter of 2014.
