DISH’s Hopper Universal Search Adds Netflix

  • Netflix joins DISH’s search results across live, recorded,
    on-demand content
  • TV series’ current and past seasons from DISH and Netflix delivered
    side-by-side for easy binge watching
  • Immediately available at Hopper 3 launch
  • Coming later to Hopper 2 DVRs

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–At the 2016 International CES, DISH Network L.L.C. unveiled plans to
integrate Netflix titles into search results on the award-winning Hopper
DVR. Available on the upcoming Hopper 3, the universal search
functionality will work across DISH’s live, recorded and on-demand
content as well as Netflix’s selection of TV shows and movies. DISH will
be the first major U.S. pay-TV provider to integrate Netflix into
universal search.


As part of the universal search results, Netflix titles will be
populated in DISH’s episode lists to better enable customers to discover
current and past seasons of TV shows.

“These integrated lists will showcase a more complete content archive
for our customers, ultimately making it easier for them to binge watch
across multiple entertainment subscriptions,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH
Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “In many
instances, DISH and Netflix deliver to our customers a wide variety of
complementary programming when you consider the availability of a TV
series by season. Netflix’s selection of past seasons will now be
populated alongside a series’ most current episodes that DISH offers
live and on-demand.”

In December 2014, DISH became the first major pay-TV provider in the
U.S. to include the Netflix app in its Hopper set-top boxes. The app was
later expanded to Joey clients, creating a whole-home Netflix experience
for DISH customers, without the need to switch inputs or devices.

Universal search featuring Netflix titles will launch on DISH’s upcoming
Hopper 3 and connected Joey clients, and, later this year, will
additionally roll out to Hopper 2 DVRs.

DISH customers who are new to Netflix can create an account in the app
or by visiting www.netflix.com/dish.
