EchoStar said it's rolling out its newest digital video recorders (DVRs) in time for the holiday shopping season.
And Thursday, EchoStar Chairman and CEO Charlie Ergen said the company plans to have SuperDISH, its single-dish, multiple-LNB solution, out in mid-November.
On the DVR side, DISH Player - DVR 921, available in late 2003, will allow viewers to record up to 25 hours of HDTV TV or 180 hours of standard definition programming. The DVR also will give viewers the control to pause live TV, perform slow-motion instant replays, and use four speeds of fast forward and fast reverse.
The DISH Player - DVR 921 has a dual tuner allowing viewers to record two live shows at once while watching other programming.
At SkyFORUM Thursday, Ergen made the announcement concerning SuperDISH. The product was first unveiled in May, and will help the company deliver more high-def programming and expand local TV offerings into more markets.
