DISH Network is known for its satellite television and internet services, but the innovative company offers a lot of value to subscribers in other areas. One genre that DISH is looking to expand their reach into is music, and has launched a program to facilitate that desire.
DISH Music, a new Hopper DVR-powered feature, was recently revealed to the world a “complete, room-to-room music entertainment experience.” This service allows you to play music from a variety of streaming sources—such as Pandora, TIDAL and iHeartRadio—to as many rooms in your home that have connected Hopper 2, 3 or Joey DVRs. These can be played through audio equipment or even just a television, enhancing the home entertainment experience for subscribers.
Niraj Desai, DISH VP of Product Management, described the new DISH Music service in a press release:
“The Hopper is capable of serving as a household’s comprehensive entertainment hub. Incorporating DTS Play-Fi technology into our offerings provides DISH customers with a premium whole-home music streaming option, in addition to the television experience they already love, at no additional cost.”
DTS Play-Fi technology is what powers the Hopper DVR and Joey’s ability to sync music throughout a home. Users can control the content with an app for Android and iOS smartphones or tablets. Music can be synced to play the same songs throughout the house, or can be divided up into different zones playing different music in each. Users also have the ability to change things up directly from the set-top box app as well, giving a multitude of options for complete control.
With many tech-savvy users opting to go wireless, it’s a relief to learn that DISH Music is compatible with DTS Play-Fi enabled speakers. According to DISH’s press release, these are the brands that currently work and which are coming in the near future—Aerix, Anthem, Arcam, Definitive Technology, Klipsch, MartinLogan, McIntosh, Paradigm, Phorus, Polk Audio, Rotel, Sonus Faber and Wren presently, with products from Elite, Integra, Pioneer, Onkyo, Thiel, SVS Sound forthcoming.
