“An executive with P&F USA, which licenses the Philips brand for the sale and marketing of TVs and video-related products in North America, confirmed that a Philips-branded “concept” PVR the company showed at its booth in the Renaissance Hotel during the recent CES 2017 in Las Vegas should be coming to market this September, under the name “Philips HD Personal Video Recorder Powered by TiVo.”
“That’s not all the 4K content, though. The Hopper 3 also supports Netflix’s 4K TV and movie offerings. (You do have to subscribe to a Netflix plan that includes Ultra HD content. No free 4K rides here.) While the total amount of 4K content certainly ain’t great from any source yet, the Hopper 3’s combination of titles from both Dish’s and Netflix’s 4K treasure troves provides more choices than many of the alternatives.”
“In no particular order, here are a few good reasons to use the HopperGO on your travels:
- Using the HopperGO to store recorded content rather than using the DISH Anywhere app to transfer the content to your iOS or Android device means you’re not using up the memory in your handheld device, which is always in short supply.
- The HooperGO creates its own private Wi-Fi network, so your kids don’t have to have your phone or tablet in their grimy little hands.
- Transferring content from a Hopper to the HopperGO is usually quicker and simpler than using the DISH Anywhere app to transfer the content to your phone/tablet.
- Since the HopperGO has its own battery, you’re not draining the battery in your phone.
- The HooperGO supports up to five independent video streams, so up to five people can watch the content of their choice—instead of incessantly arguing about what to watch in the back seat while you’re driving (or trying to sleep in your hotel room).
“TiVo offers another trick that lets you watch more TV in less time. QuickMode, compatible with any recorded or delayed show, plays video 30 percent faster without altering the audio pitch. Actors walk and talk faster, but they don’t sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks, and captions are readable. Using SkipMode to vault commercials and QuickMode to hasten play, I was able to watch 60 Minutes in 33. With both in play, a chime supplements the SkipMode prompt. Getting time back on every hour is something you’ll cherish the older you get.
