DISH eliminates wire clutter with new Wireless Joey

DISH’s Wireless Joey system, available today, gives consumers the ability to watch TV virtually anywhere in and around the home without the need for wiring. The small client connects wirelessly to the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR using a dedicated 802.11ac access point.

“Wireless Joey expands installation options where coaxial or Ethernet wiring is either difficult or undesirable, eliminating unsightly wire runs,” says Vivek Khemka, DISH Senior Vice President of Product Management. “You’re no longer forced to position your TV on the same wall or near a room’s coax outlet. Whether you’re in a new house, an older home or on a backyard patio enjoying a family cookout, Wireless Joey delivers television where you want it.”

Wireless Joey provides an identical experience to a wired Joey, with full Hopper functionality including the PrimeTime Anytime and AutoHop features, and the ability to view, record, pause, rewind and fast forward TV content.

“Signal degradation causes a poor video experience when using older wireless networking protocols,” adds Khemka. “We chose 802.11ac to create a fast, reliable wireless network that delivers HD video in homes of varying size and construction.”
