ENGLEWOOD, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DISH customers can now stream the Netflix catalog of Ultra HD TV shows
and movies from a Hopper 3 DVR. Beginning today, these Netflix titles
join DISH’s inventory of Ultra HD content that includes a slate of 4K
programming from Sony, The Orchard and Mance Media.
The Hopper 3 delivers native 4K support, decoding and outputting 60
frames per second and 10-bit color. While the Netflix app has been
available on this set-top box since February, access now includes the
variety of Netflix award-winning originals in 4K, such as Marvel’s
“Daredevil” and “House of Cards.”
“Netflix is actively taking steps to broaden the availability of Ultra
HD content, with plans to provide more than 600 hours by the end of this
year,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH executive vice president and CTO. “As the
cost of 4K TVs continues to decrease, consumer adoption of and interest
in Ultra HD technology becomes more widespread. We’re making every
effort to provide our Hopper 3 customers with additional access to 4K
programming as it’s made available.”
With a subscription to Netflix’s $11.99 per month plan, 4K titles are
accessible from DISH’s Hopper 3. Netflix recommends an Internet
connection speed of at least 25 megabits per second to stream Ultra HD
