Dish Adds Amazon Prime Video to Hopper 3

Bolstering its portfolio of streaming services Dish has added Amazon Prime Video to its Hopper 3 DVR’s array of services.


Dish has released the Amazon Prime Video app on its Hopper 3 flagship DVR solution.

The addition of Amazon Prime Video expands Dish‘s streaming content options on its whole-house DVR system to offer users a choice between popular streaming services that include Netflix and Amazon Prime.

Through the addition of Amazon Prime, homeowners will be able to instantly stream their favorite Amazon Originals, including “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” and Emmy Award-winning “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” from the same platform as their Dish TV programming. 

“Amazon Prime Video on Hopper gives our customers the most seamless way to access the content they already know and love,” states Brian Neylon, group president of DishTV.

“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.” 

Dish explains to access the Prime Video app, users can say “Launch Prime Video” into the DISH voice remote or launch the experience via the guide on channel 301.

“We’re committed to providing customers with the best viewing experience possible and that means giving them even more ways to watch Prime Video,” notes Andrew Bennett, director of worldwide business development for Amazon Prime Video.

“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.”

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. 

Additionally, Dish points out that Amazon Prime joins its catalog of integrated video streaming options that also includes YouTube and YouTube Kids.
