With the DISH Network Hopper, Idaho satellite customers enjoy full HD DVR functionality on every TV in your house — you can pause, rewind and record live TV in any room. That means no more fighting for the remote or getting frustrated over having to choose which programs you record.

The Hopper gives you access to your full DVR library on all TV’s, allowing you to record your favorite TV show or movie starting in your living room, while watching in your bedroom, and then finishing in the kitchen.
