YouTube would be nice, but I haven't heard anything on it yet. But, I heard Vivek say that there would be an HBO GO app (although I haven't seen it repeated anywhere). Now that would be really nice.

No need for an HBO Go app, the VOD on the Hopper will have most of the HBO content saved to it. :)

What is the Weather app like? Since there is no weather on 8's do that have Radar with moving graphics to tell you what the direction the storm is going? Temp? ForeCasts? Local Rad?

Does it load fast?

I know this would compete with the BBMP but any chance for a Netflix app?

i don't think netflix and amazon will ever happen on a Dish box as they have blockbuster to sell.

You're better off getting those via other means rather than waiting for something that is very unlikely to happen.

An MLB.tv app would be great and then nobody would even care about the lack of an Extra Innings package.

Most likely not...but just the prospect of being able to DVR these streams for offline viewing or when certain titles are no longer available, would be wicked cool. :)

Yeah, I just said, "wicked cool." :eek:
