Dish Network today added support for the Amazon Prime Video subscription service to its Hopper 3 set-top box.
Prime Video is available to all Hopper 3 customers and accessible via the app menu or Dish voice remote. Amazon’s 4K content is also available to Hopper 3 customers with a 4K TV.
“Amazon Prime Video on Hopper gives our customers the most seamless way to access the content they already know and love,” said Brian Neylon, group president of Dish TV, in a statement. “Rather than switching between inputs, devices or even remotes to watch Prime Video, our customers get the convenience of having all of their programming in one place, providing more value to the Hopper 3 experience.”
“We’re committed to providing customers with the best viewing experience possible and that means giving them even more ways to watch Prime Video,” said Andrew Bennett, director of worldwide business development for Amazon Prime Video, in a statement. “With Prime Video now available on Hopper 3, we are making it easy for even more Dish customers to immediately start enjoying their favorite TV shows and movies on Prime Video.”
Amazon Prime joins Dish’s catalog of integrated video streaming options, including Netflix, YouTube and YouTube Kids.
For Prime Video, this is the second significant pay TV partnership this month. TiVo is launching the Amazon Prime Video app on some TiVo devices for its pay TV operator customers nationwide. The integration means that pay TV subscribers with an Amazon Prime membership can stream content via the Prime Video app on select TiVo devices, and use the TiVo voice remote. Customers can also use OnePass, a TiVo feature that gathers every episode of a series available from anywhere.
