But you are paying another $15.00 a month for that second stream. I want multiple streams for one hopper , especially since it does 16 tuners at one time. What is the chance you will ever use all 16 tuners anyway?
I know that SLING tv is doing something like this now so they can get more people to their service. Sling Orange you get one stream at a time. Sling Blue you get three streams at a time.
DISH could do this for their satellite customers if they really wanted to. It would mean we could use Amazon Fire sticks on extra tvs and pay nothing a month and still all use the same service. Great step to eliminate the additional receiver fees that are so high anyway.
Dish likely limited the number of streams due to the upload speed requirements. As Scott said the quality may not be there for everyone. If a single Hopper is uploading more than one stream the quality will be pretty bad depending on your upload capacity. I have 100 Mbps down and 10 up, so even with a pretty decent plan splitting that into two makes it only decent speeds.
