The Hopper by DISH is a Traveler's Best Friend!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of DISH. All opinions are 100% mine.

My husband and I are big time travelers and try to take at least 6 full vacations a year. One of the things we dislike about traveling so much is our inability to watch our favorite tv shows while out on the road. Well, there is finally a solution to that and it's called The Hopper, by DISH. Today, we wanted to share some information about it with all of our travel blog readers.

The Hopper is a whole-home HD DVR that is ONLY available from DISH. You can Learn more about the Hopper by visiting their web site. The Hopper is the only unit of it's kind that allows you to watch your favorite live and/or recorded TV shows anywhere that you may be. An added bonus is that you can instantly skip all of those annoying commercials and watch your favorite shows even faster! I don't know about all of you, but I am certainly sick and tired of commercials!

With the Hopper, you can record up to 6 shows in primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite recorded shows! Wow, that is a lot of shows which is perfect for our family's viewing habits! What I really love is that now we can use it at home, at our cabin, at our beach house or even in our RV. Isn't that cool? You don't need an internet connection to watch your shows while traveling, which is the biggest benefit to us all!

You can get the Hopper for FREE when you sign up with Dish and packages start at just $24.99 (12 months with a 24 month commitment, restrictions do apply). That is really affordable!

The new DISH Anywhere transforms your tablet, smartphone and computer into a portable TV and it lets you take control of your DVR schedule & manage your recordings remotely. Now you will never miss a show because you can set up the DVR to record it.

The AutoHop is for people like me who hate commercials! You can set it up to automatically skip commercials from all of the major networks like ABC, NBC, CBS and FOX! What a huge time saver when it comes to viewing your favorite shows!

If you are traveling by air, the Hopper Transfer is just for you! You can watch your recorded shows while in-flight, without an internet connection! This is great for those of you who fly a lot or for families who fly and need to keep the kids busy. Now you don't need to purchase iTunes movies and shows, which is a huge savings!

The Primetime Anytime feature with The Hopper allows you to record up to 6 different shows at the same time! This is especially during primetime viewing time when many of your favorite shows are on TV at the same time!

The Whole-Home HD DVR Functionality allows you have to have full function HD DVR on all of your tvs...yes, all of them! You can pause, rewind, fast forward, stop and record live TV from any room in your home. As an added benefit, you can access your DVR library from any tv, at any time! You can start watching your favorite program in the living room and finish watching it in the bedroom with no problems at all!I

t will allow you can watch video any where and at any time! Many of us are into high-tech smartphones, tablets, notebooks, netbooks, computers, etc. and the Hopper will work with them all. Use it at home, in the air, while traveling for business or pleasure!

The Dish currently delivers satellite TV to over 14 million subscribers and offers the best tv programming at the most affordable cost. They provide the most HD and international programming in the United States and employs more than 25,000 people in the U.S. In other words, this is a high-tech company that you can trust to deliver you the best high-tech products!

You can LIKE DISH on Facebook and you can Follow DISH on Twitter to interact with fans and to be kept up to date with company news and product information.

Personally, I am glad to see a product like this come into the marketplace as hubby and I often complained about missing our favorite TV shows while traveling or having to pay for expensive in-room hotel movies. A product like this is definitely made for travelers and we can certainly see how this would save the traveler money! Yeah!
