Oh CES, you bring us so much tasty tech goodness! Not just new gadgets, but new and improved ways in which existing gadgets and software can work together. For example, if you remember the ol’ Slingbox concept, you might have wondered to yourself, “Self, in what way could this be improved, maybe with some cleaner way to deal with my satellite company and an easier way to handle everything?” Well, tell yourself that someone’s been working on that, because Dish has just introduced the Hopper™ with Sling®, the second generation of its award-winning Whole-Home HD DVR system. Now you can
- Watch live and recorded television anywhere on Internet-connected tablets, smartphones and PCs at no additional charge
- Move recorded television to an iPad for viewing without an Internet connection
- Transform your TVs into a home media hub with new multi-player gaming apps and the ability to ‘fling’ photos, videos and music from a mobile device
Now, at the ol’ Moran household, we don’t have cable or a satellite connection; we watch our video on our iPads, laptops, and iPhones, mostly. So being able to move content back and forth between platforms, well, that’s some tech goodness, don’t you think?
Sound interesting? Then wander on by the DishTV site and check it out! And if you do, be sure to let us know what you think below!
