    Hopper 1 has 720k of memory and the Hopper 2 has 2GB. I just had both of my Hopper 1's changed out to Hopper 2's.

    But... If Dish was going to start offering a new product, why not start at the top?

    It's slow and I can get better resolution via my TV or my Amazon Firestick. Probably will not be using it. A little too late for me.

    I have a VIP77. I can't afford it. Nice though.

    No it doesn't. I clicked on the icon and after a brief moment with a black screen I get thrown back into the same menu.

    I think they are expecting to open before they click on the link.

    I'm assuming when the app rolls out to Joey that I need a Hopper with Sling also. How much does it cost to upgrade from the original Hopper? I haven't done any upgrades in the last two years. Or should I wait to see what is announced at CES?

    Not sure why adding Netflix to STBs is such a big deal. There are many ways to view Netflix with little or no investment which is one reason why Netflix has become such a success.

    Netflix wants this.. Netflix wants to be in homes that have cable or satellite but are not yet Netflix subscribers. Dish is willing to do this because it keeps a potential Netflix customer as a Dish customer too.

    Meanwhile my live TV viewing is inundated with anti-Netflix advertisements. :)

    I talked to a friend of mine on Friday, he has a Hopper 1. He's disappointed, and said he was told he shouldn't get the Hopper 2, but got the Hopper 1 that was recommended. It may have been because he already had an external sling.

    I haven't seen these, probably because I spend so much time watching Netflix. :dance:

    ??? Don't think I've every seen an "anti-Netflix" ad. Of course when you don't watch hardly any commercials in the first place I suppose they're easy to miss.

    If you have one of the new "smart" TVs, It is superfluous to pass Netflix through the Hopper. You get the stream directly through broadband with an easily accessible app. With my Samsung UHD TV my Roku is now gathering dust and I have access to 4k streaming via Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube.

    If Netflix is streaming on the Hopper, Dish on Demand is stuttering and freezing constantly on the Joey. So we had to go back to the Roku or the Smart TV for Netflix during the evening when multiple TVs are in use. Otherwise, the app itself worked well for us.

    Any reason they can't add Dolby Digital? SJ

    Netflix, Vudo, Crackle, Amazon, etc are all available on the Roku too. As long as the internet speed is fast enough, Netflix and the others work great.
