ENGLEWOOD, Colo.--( BUSINESS WIRE )--DISH is now the first major U.S. pay-TV provider to offer a whole-home 4K Netflix experience. After offering Netflix Ultra HD titles on its Hopper 3 DVR since April 2016 , the company added the app to its 4K Joey client. Now DISH customers have the ability to stream the robust catalog of Ultra HD TV shows and movies on Netflix in multiple rooms throughout the home.
“Our customers love watching their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies in Ultra HD on Hopper 3, so we’re extending the app to our 4K Joey clients to deliver the added flexibility of a whole-home 4K Netflix experience.”Tweet this
When connected to a Hopper 3, DISH’s 4K Joey provides similar TV functionality to other rooms in the home. Hopper 3 supports up to six 4K Joeys simultaneously, powering a total of seven 4K TVs at one time.
“Netflix is leading the industry with one of the largest 4K libraries available,” said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “Our customers love watching their favorite Netflix TV shows and movies in Ultra HD on Hopper 3, so we’re extending the app to our 4K Joey clients to deliver the added flexibility of a whole-home 4K Netflix experience.”
To access Netflix’s 4K programming, DISH customers should select the “Home” or “App” button on the remote control, then select the Netflix icon. The app can also be accessed on channel 370 in the DISH programming guide. Once in the Netflix app, Ultra HD titles are identifiable by searching the terms “4K” or “UHD.” With Netflix integrated into DISH’s universal search results, its 4K titles will also be populated in episode lists using the DISH remote’s traditional search functionality.
DISH customers must subscribe to Netflix’s $11.99 per month subscription plan and have a 4K-compatible television to access this Ultra HD content on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey. Netflix recommends an Internet connection speed of at least 25 megabits per second to stream Ultra HD titles.

Germantown, Md., June 5, 2017—Hughes Network Systems, LLC (HUGHES) today announced its recently launched HughesNet Gen5 satellite Internet service has reached a major milestone in just two months – now serving more than 100,000 homes and small businesses, including both new subscribers and upgrades, and subscribers in every continental U.S. state have been connected to the service.

“The new HughesNet Gen5 is meeting the need for high-speed Internet in households and small businesses across the country – especially in areas underserved or unserved by ‘traditional’ wired Internet,” said Mike Cook, executive vice president at Hughes. “Everyone has the right to high- speed Internet access and Hughes is proud to bring fast, reliable Internet to all households coast-to-coast across America, no matter where they live or work.”
