3 ways to prepare for the fall TV Line up
My favorite time of the year is Fall. Living in upstate NY it is absolutely beautiful. We have a lot of mountains and trees that are filled with changing leaves. The changing leaves and the crisp chill in the air makes me in the mood for pumpkin and apple everything. To me, there is nothing better than pulling out the sweatshirts and lighting up the fireplace and enjoying the new fall schedules on the television with the scent of apple pie in the air. My biggest problem will be how quickly I can switch to the next program.
1. Voice Remote from Dish:
This fall season looks even better with the new Voice Remote. This makes watching television even easier. With features like voice recognition, a clickable touchpad and backlighting. This remote controls navigation, search and content selection on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey set-top boxes.
Roughly half the size of a traditional remote control, Voice Remote fits in the palm of the user’s hand, much like a smartphone. DISH designed the remote to interpret natural language, populating search results based on program title, actor or genre, and building contextual searches to narrow options, as desired. It also utilizes voice commands to control basic functions of the receiver, including recording and changing channels.
Voice Remote features two touchpad modes: default displays a blank touchpad allowing navigation tasks, while the numeric mode illuminates a keypad when channel or password entry is preferred.
With the ability to serve as a universal remote, Voice Remote can control up to two IR devices (TV/AUX models). New and existing Hopper 3 and 4K Joey customers can purchase Voice Remote for $30 by calling 1-800-333-DISH or visiting www.dish.com.
Hopper Voice is a universal remote with learning capabilities. It features voice control, dual function touchpad and a RF4CE remote control finder. The entire remote can be backlit and can last 4-6 months on two AA batteries. It is designed to easily fit in the palm of a user’s hand with dimensions of 5.59”(L) x 2.25”(W) x 1.02″(D).
How many channels do you actually watch? I love the new option to be able to pay for only the channels I actually watch. How cool is that?
