Dish Network Dec. 16 announced that the Amazon Prime Video app is now available on Hopper 3, the cloud-based set-top box/DVR. Prime Video joins Dish’s catalog of integrated video streaming options, including Netflix, YouTube and YouTube Kids.
The satellite TV operator said Prime Video complements the existing “Dish experience” by allowing subscribers to instantly stream Amazon Originals, including “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” and Emmy Award-winning “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” from the same platform as their pay-TV programming.
“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,”Brian Neylon, group president of Dish TV, said in a statement.
To access the Prime Video app, users can say “Launch Prime Video” into the Dish voice remote or launch 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,” said 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.
