The Freedom Plan is back in Exede low fill beams. The 150 GB a month data plan is a hit with rural internet users that want to access Netflix and other high usage data services.

But we are not out of the Bandwidth Woods yet. Viasat has reserved the right to throttle you back, or even terminate your service if you regularly go over the 150 data limit.

FREEDOM PLANS
If you use greater than 150 GB of data during your monthly billing period, your web and email speeds may not be slower, but other types of internet use, including video streaming, will be slower until the end of your monthly billing period. When our network is busy, you will have lower priority on our network until the end of your monthly billing period. This may result in slower speeds when the network is busy. ViaSat may contact you and request that you reduce your monthly usage below 150 GB or transition to another service plan. If you do neither, ViaSat may terminate your service, per the   Bandwidth Usage Policy . Service is for residential and non-commercial use.

So life is not perfect in the satellite internet world, but we are pleased with the increased data caps that are being offered in some areas, and are looking forward to the launch of the new satellite in 2017.

It’s a big day for sports fans. The obvious reason might be because the 2016 NCAA tournament first-round games begin today. While this is enough to pump up every college basketball enthusiast around the country, we’re giving you one more thing to cheer about during all the madness.  MultiView is now available on Hopper 3 at International Satellite & Antenna Service in Ocala, Florida

MultiView Mode, also known as MultiView, divides a 4K or HD TV screen into quadrants, each with the ability to display a program. It works with all live, linear channels in DISH’s programming lineup, as well as on demand content, and recorded TV shows and movies.

MultiView Mode is available just in time for the NCAA tournament, which airs across four different channels (CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV) with multiple games occurring at the same time. Forget having to travel to your local sports pub. You can now catch all the best tournament moments from the comfort of your own home without ever having to pick and choose which games you tune into.

To access the feature, press the “Options” button on your remote control, select “Picture In Picture,” then “MultiView.” Once the TV screen is divided into quadrants, you can easily toggle among the four channels to determine which one will have its audio played.

Hopper 3 includes additional multi-channel configurations, including a split-screen feature that places two channels side-by-side, as well as a setting that overlays a second channel in the upper right hand corner of the TV screen.

International Satellite & Antenna Service's showroom is located 3 miles west of I-75 in the Jasmine Plaza on State Road 200 in Ocala. They can be reached at 1-877-233-3474.

Summer is approaching, which means it’s time to get your travel plans in order. Whether you’re going camping, taking a road trip or hanging out at the beach, chances are you’ll have some time to kill. (Think long car rides, waiting at the airport or relaxing when you have some downtime on vacation.) While it would be great to bring your DVR along to keep you entertained on all of your adventures, you likely won’t be able to fit it in your suitcase.

But what if you could?

Now available to DISH customers nationwide is   HopperGO for $99 with no monthly fees . Announced earlier this year at CES , HopperGO is a pocket-sized personal mobile video drive that allows you to take your favorite shows and movies with you wherever you go.

Using HopperGO is simple. Plug it into your   Hopper 3   or Hopper 2 DVR, and select which recorded programs you’d like to transfer using the   DISH Anywhere   mobile app. If you don’t know what you’ll be in the mood to watch on your trip, no worries! HopperGO holds up to 100 hours of content, so you don’t have to pick and choose.

Once you’ve transferred your content, unplug your HopperGO from your set-top box, and connect your mobile device to HopperGO’s private wireless network. Then watch your programs using the DISH Anywhere app available on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as Kindle tablets. Up to five users can connect to a HopperGO to stream up to five different shows simultaneously, so it will keep your whole family entertained while traveling.

Here are some instructions to help you get started with your HopperGO.

Connecting your HopperGO

  1. Use the micro-USB cable to plug your HopperGO into your Hopper.
  2. Verify that you see an on-screen notification that says   HopperGO Connecting.
  3. Once connected, a pop-up will appear that says   HopperGO Ready!

  Transferring recordings to your HopperGO

  1. Open the DISH Anywhere app on your smartphone or tablet.

Ocala, Florida July 1, 20176 -- International Satellite & Antenna Service. / Viasat    (NASDAQ: VSAT), a global broadband services and technology company that operates the consumer high speed satellite internet service exede, is supportive of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) decision to make the Connect America Fund (CAF) reverse auction technology neutral and cost-effective by inviting new service providers to participate in the bidding process.

Lasty week, the FCC made an important decision to make $2B available over 10 years to subsidize broadband service availability for many U.S. households in the most remote and hardest-to-serve areas. The Commission took the first step in allowing non-telco service providers with different broadband technologies to compete for the funding. Allowing all technologies to compete through a competitive bidding process can potentially drive down the cost of the program to U.S. consumers. The CAF is focused on modernizing the universal service and intercarrier compensation systems to ensure robust, affordable voice and broadband service, both fixed and mobile, are available to Americans throughout the nation.

"We recognize and applaud Chairman Wheeler, the Commissioners and FCC staff for listening to various stakeholders and potential providers in the Connect America Fund proceeding, and taking an important first step toward expanding beyond legacy technologies and creating a technology neutral competition to provide the best available broadband access universally," said Mark Dankberg, ViaSat chairman and CEO. "ViaSat stands ready to participate in the proceeding and auction by offering future-ready satellite internet solutions that will help fill the broadband gap in the United States with a high-quality, high-performance broadband and voice service to the target households."

With the FCC's decision, all internet services, including ViaSat's satellite broadband service, Exede®, are closer to competing for universal service funds on a level playing field. This will provide the best available high-speed internet access to U.S. households that have been traditionally in the most challenging to serve locations. ViaSat is looking forward to commenting on outstanding issues related to weighting criteria to be used to select competing bids, which will be critical to ensuring that all participating technologies actually compete fairly for funding to deliver the best possible service to everyone. With the addition of satellite broadband, more consumers will have the option for high-quality, high-speed internet access that enables streaming of HD movies and videos as well as music, loading webpages super-quick, video chatting, voice calling, software updates, emailing large files and more - from virtually anywhere in the United States. Today satellite broadband is available with download speeds up to 25 Megabits per second (Mbps), with even higher speeds to be offered in 2017 with the launch of the ViaSat-2 satellite.

About Exede Internet
Exede, a service of ViaSat, Inc., delivers high-speed internet to residential subscribers and businesses across the U.S. With download speeds of up to 25 Mbps, the Exede service has transformed satellite internet for households that previously had slow, inadequate internet service. ViaSat also offers Exede Voice residential telephone service over its network, optimized for quality and reliability. The Company offers Exede Business, which delivers a number of service plans to fit the varying needs of today's businesses.

About ViaSat's High-Capacity Satellite Platforms
Beginning with ViaSat-1, ViaSat started a transformation of satellite communications into a high-performance broadband service competitive with terrestrial alternatives. ViaSat-2, which is set to launch in Q1 CY2017, will provide another leap forward in broadband service quality for residential, mobile and enterprises by offering seven times the geographic coverage and twice the bandwidth of ViaSat-1. The Company also announced plans to launch the ViaSat-3 ultra-high capacity satellite platform - which is comprised of three ViaSat-3 class satellites with state-of-the-art ground network infrastructure. The first ViaSat-3 broadband communications platform is expected to focus on the Americas with plans to launch in 2019.

Tired of switching inputs on your TV or squinting to watch YouTube videos on your smart phone screen, you will soon be able to view your favorite online content on the big screen without ever having to leave your HOPPER 3™!

International Satellite is pleased to announcing the newest addition to Hopper apps,   YouTube . HOPPER 3™ customers will see YouTube join   Netflix and Vevo   in the coming months.

The addition of YouTube makes HOPPER 3™ the ultimate video solution. Now, DISH not only offers hundreds of thousands of Vevo music videos, plus millions of videos from YouTube, the most popular Internet video platform—at no extra cost to you. DISH customers also have access to movies and TV shows from Netflix within the Hopper experience.

For more information on Hopper 3, contact the team at International Satellite & Antenna Service at the Central Florida office on State Road 200 In Ocala, Florida

 At no time have there ever been more options for accessing and watching TV. People who are trying to figure out how they will get, view and manage their entertainment content should look no further than the new HOPPER 3™, which DISH unveiled at the recent 2016 CES. The HOPPER 3™ is a satellite receiver for the modern age, delivering TV in a way that is both personalized and manageable and supports 4K technology. Here’s a breakdown of how this generation of HOPPER is upgrading the TV experience once again.

Wherever, Whenever, However

Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, TV-on-the-go services, smart TVs and advanced receivers have not only expanded our TV options, but they’ve also launched countless arguments over who gets to watch what where. Conflicts stemming from different TV preferences and age ranges are a thing of the past with the HOPPER 3™; now, you can watch and record 16 shows at once and support up to seven TVs. One shared home video network can record up to 500 hours of HD programming or up to 2,000 hours of SD programming. No one has to miss out on anything.

Likewise, you can personalize your TV schedule by watching shows when and how you want. The  HopperGo  eliminates the woes created when you’re without an Internet connection or running low on mobile device storage by using Wi-Fi hotspot technology and up to 100 hours of storage space. Bring it along, plug it into your mobile device whenever you’re ready and catch up on your favorite shows.

Furthermore, the HOPPER 3™’s two terabytes of storage space means users can make TV match their schedule, instead of the other way around. Show start times can be ignored, as long as the show is set to be recorded (just make sure to avoid social media spoilers). Working late? Ask the family to hold off on watching that season finale so you can watch it together. What’s more, if you’d like to watch live sports games as the action happens, the Mosaic feature allows for up to six channels to be viewed simultaneously.

A New Experience

The transition from analog to digital TV meant crisper, more reliable channels — but it also caused new complaints such as slow channel load times and confusing programming guides and menus. The  redesigned HOPPER 3™ user interface , advanced search functions and voice control features address these concerns.

The interface features a cleaner, modern design and offers automatic quick help whenever “#” is pressed. The search function has a predictive component and searches all content through the programming guide and On Demand library. The HOPPER Voice Remote enables users to change channels, play movies or launch apps with voice commands.

Ushering in 4K

The progression of TV from standard definition to 1080p continues with the (albeit slow) adoption of 4K. Last year, DISH introduced the first 4K set-top box (4K Joey), so HOPPER features could be used with 4K TVs. The  HOPPER 3™  completes the 4K ecosystem by adding a receiver to the family.

It’s still a process to find  4K TV  content, and it may be some time before it’s the new standard. It’s hard to argue against the quality and sharpness of a 4K screen. If you plan on going 4K this year (or this decade), the HOPPER 3™ doesn’t require a 4K TV — but it’ll be ready when you take that next step.

App Happy

As the popularity of streaming TV apps continues to rise, products are forced to become an all-in-one entertainment destination. The HOPPER 3™ comes with Netflix, Pandora, VEVO and tons more apps built in, so viewers can binge watch or stream music to their heart’s content. These apps can be launched with the voice controls on the  HOPPER remote .
