We are TV watchers in this family. I like a lot of drama or comedy shows and my kids tend to like a cooking shows lately. Everytime I look at their list of last watched shows, it looks like this:

Cake Boss

The Next Great Baker

DC Cupcakes


And anything else related to cooking but those are their favorites right now. Our DVR gets quite a workout. However, we also travel a lot and the kids really want to be able to take their shows on the road.

Now they can!

  51. You named a few of MY favorite reasons for using the DISH Hopper, and it just keeps getting better and better! PrimeTime Anytime and AutoHop are both amazing, but I really love the new DISH Anywhere app! We record a lot of shows too, DISH Anywhere lets you enjoy all your channels and everything on your DVR anywhere you have Internet access, which is a big deal for families on the go. It even works for both Androids AND Apple devices. I can turn on a movie for the kids during long car trips, and when I finish my shift at DISH I can just turn the game on live, instantly! DISH Anywhere allows you to enjoy the comfort of home from anywhere!

  52. The stairs that turn into a recliner is my favorite part!
