DISH Caters To PlayStation Users

by Jacqueline Bailey on January 08, 2014

A new app is being developed by DISH Network L.L.C., a smaller network owned by DISH, that allows PlayStation 3 and 4 users to connect their DVR system to their PlayStation device. By doing so, they have created a "Virtual Joey." 

DISH is quickly becoming a top competitor, first by teaming up with Wirefly and providing customers with affordable packs that cater to their needs, and now by accessing PlayStation devices, which positively affects millions of Americans. 

This may increase convenience in terms of TV-watching for many homeowners who want to place a Hopper in a place without easy access to Ethernet wiring. Many people across the world already own a PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4, which makes this a smart move on DISH's part. 

By using your Sony game device as a Joey, you'll be freeing up one of DISH's Joeys, so you can use it in another room of your choice. 

DISH has really worked hard on this one; with this PlayStation app, downloadable in the PlayStation store on your device, users will have access to the Hopper Whole-Home DVR, remote control channels, and live TV. This saves installation time and makes your life easier if you already own a PlayStation 3 or 4. 

If you needed another reason to buy DISH online at Wirefly, this is a pretty incredible one. For more information on the DISH PlayStation app, check out their website. The app is expected to be released in Spring 2014.
