DISH introduced something new to complement its new Hopper and Joey whole home DVR systemâ€”the DISH Explorer app for iPad. This is an intuitive "second-screen" app that lets you find programs, engage social media and also perform remote-control functions. While customers are already using tablets while watching TV, the Explorer app melds the two experiences into one seamless event. The app will be available for FREE from the Apple store starting tomorrow (January 7th). DISH Explorer expands the functionality of the Hopper by allowing customers to discover popular and trending shows, engage with fans via Twitter and Facebook, control the Hopper, and search live TV, DVR and on-demand programsâ€”all from the iPad's keyboard.
