I got the news release this morning and must admit I'm puzzled how this is going to work relative to the subject of this thread Unplugged - the Google/YouTube streaming bundle - I assume the streaming bundle carrying among others broadcast network TV and which when initiated will compete with Sling TV will not be accessible through the app on the Hopper 3.
They also make it sound like Dish is blazing a new trail. Haven't DirecTV boxes had a Youtube app for years until it became obsolete a while back? My Tivo has also had a Youtube app for years. Where were those press releases? I don't see how this is any more newsworthy.
Reminds me of when KFC started selling french fries years ago. In their ads, they acted like they invented them, despite the fact they've been around for over 300 years and that every other fast food joint has sold them forever.
I have the YouTube app and Channel 371 on my Hopper 3, but not on my Joeys. Odd!
Yes, Directv had the Youtube option but it wasn't very user friendly. Much easier and faster using the computer. Doubt many miss it leaving nor should they be excited coming to Dish. These apps are clumsy at best.
You might be wise to wait and see. The channel 370 Netflix app is flawless.
Sad, it does not support 4K YouTube.
YouTube changed the protocols for 4k too late for the Hopper3 design.
Not much supports YouTube 4K. Not even my Vizio M55C2.
