I'm surprised there is no Hopper 4 out yet. We had the Hopper 1 in 2012 and the Hopper 2 in 2014 and the Hopper 3 came out in 2016. So we should be due for the Hopper 4 this year.

What are the equipment options for new customers can choose when signing up for DISH?

It’s usually based on dish’s secret credit system but usually you can get a better receiver for an upfront upgrade cost. But I will list all the receivers available to new customers.


Hopper 2000(original- very very slow)

Hopper With Sling(2nd gen Hopper - sling built in - bearable if coming from cable)

Hopper 3 with Sling( newest Hopper DVR - faster than all competitors DVR’s - can output 4K)

Joeys( for additional TVs in Hopper system)

Joey 1(no longer installed in new setups)

Joey 2(default Joey used for new installs)

Joey 3(newest and fastest but only available upon request and if your local installer has them in stock)

Joey 4K (only Joey capable of 4K content)

Non DVRs

Wally (now has two satellite tuners - can add external HDD with one time $40 fee to have recording capabilities)

Hopper Duo
