PlayStation fans who are DISH subscribers can now take control of their Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR with the new DISH “Virtual Joey” app on PS3, which will be available to download with the PlayStation Store update later today.
Virtual Joey allows you to seamlessly tap into your Hopper using your PS3 without additional wires or boxes. The app communicates with Hopper over your home Ethernet connection, providing an easier, clutter-free way to watch your favorite shows, live sports, thousands of On Demand titles, and DVR recordings.
You can navigate using your DS3 controller or your DISH remote for easy channel surfing, viewing or recording shows.
As we announced earlier this year, the DISH Virtual Joey app will also be coming to PS4 and we’ll have more details to share very soon.
You can download the DISH Virtual Joey app from the app section of the PlayStation Store, or from either My Channels and What’s New on the PS3 XMB. Not a DISH member? Call 800-333-DISH or visit www.dish.com to sign up.
