Dish Network customers who are Prime Video subscribers can now access the app via Dish’s Hopper 3 DVR. Amazon Prime joins other integrated streaming options such as Netflix, Pandora, YouTube and YouTube Kids. Amazon’s 4K content is also available to Hopper 3 customers with a 4K TV.
“Amazon Prime Video on Hopper gives our customers the most seamless way to access the content they already know and love,” said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV. “Rather than switching between inputs, devices or even remotes to watch Prime Video, our customers get the convenience of having all of their programming in one place, providing more value to the Hopper 3 experience.”
Dish customers can use the Hopper 3 to access Prime Video originals such as “Fleabag,” “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” from the same platform as their Dish TV programming. To access the Prime Video app, users can say “Launch Prime Video” into the Dish voice remote or launch the app through the guide on channel 301.
“We’re committed to providing customers with the best viewing experience possible and that means giving them even more ways to watch Prime Video,” said Andrew Bennett, director of worldwide business development for Amazon Prime Video. “With Prime Video now available on Hopper 3, we are making it easy for even more Dish customers to immediately start enjoying their favorite TV shows and movies on Prime Video.”
