ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Dec. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- DISH today released the Amazon Prime Video app on Hopper 3, expanding its streaming content options on the award-winning DVR.

Amazon Prime Video on Hopper 3

"Amazon Prime Video on Hopper gives our customers the most seamless way to access the content they already know and love," said Brian Neylon, group president of DISH TV. "Rather than switching between inputs, devices or even remotes to watch Prime Video, our customers get the convenience of having all of their programming in one place, providing more value to the Hopper 3 experience."
To access the Prime Video app, users can say "Launch Prime Video" into the DISH voice remote or launch the experience via the guide on channel 301.
"We're committed to providing customers with the best viewing experience possible and that means giving them even more ways to watch Prime Video," said Andrew Bennett, director of worldwide business development for Amazon Prime Video. "With Prime Video now available on Hopper 3, we are making it easy for even more DISH customers to immediately start enjoying their favorite TV shows and movies on Prime Video."
Prime Video is available to all Hopper 3 customers and accessible via the app menu or DISH voice remote. Amazon's 4K content is also available to Hopper 3 customers with a 4K TV.
Amazon Prime joins DISH's catalog of integrated video streaming options, including Netflix, YouTube and YouTube Kids.

Hopper 3 boasts 16 tuners, two terabytes of DVR storage, live and on-demand 4K compatibility, PrimeTime Anytime, AutoHop and integrated apps like Netflix, YouTube, YouTube Kids, Pandora and Amazon Prime Video. Voice-control capabilities through Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and the DISH voice remote give customers easier access to their favorite programming.

My brain is programmed to care not. My Harmony"s are a one stop shot to whatever device or TV app. I'll probably never use it once I get it.

No 301 here, either but a few other things. On the negative, my Surround sound is horrible now. Almost no sound out of the rears. On the plus, the picture on my LG (1080) looks way better. I noticed it watching the football game last night and MSNBC looked as vibrantly Hi Def as espn normally does.

No 301 either but the app works. As soon as it finishes activating and showing the Amazon logo, my Hisense 4K TV claims it has no video. This is behaving like it was trying to switch the TV to 4K, because unplugging and plugging the cable back in restores the picture.

Can anyone confirm or deny that the Amazon Prime app main menu is in 4K? I can't get my blessed Roku TV to tell me what it's showing. :crying

Can anyone confirm that Apple TV + app on H3 is supported, it should work like the Fire Stick 4K correct?

I will switch from DICKTV tomorrow if it is supported.... however I don't see apps on the pulldown menus.

I am having sound drops using the Amazon prime video. The CC is now needed to fill in the sound drops.
