Joeys yes. New Hoppers no.

All’s I can say is stay tuned. It’s going to be a exciting time to be a dish customer. :)

In one way or another in my near 25 years with them it's always been more exciting, good and bad than with other providers. :biggrin ;)

Zatznotfunny has reported FCC filings for new Joeys and possibly 2 new Hoppers….a Hopper Plus and an unnamed Hopper. Unfortunately, other than the existence of such coming hardware, no other details are given. Hmmmm, maybe our resident Dish gurus have more details they can share?
Is this what you read? DISH Network Has New Set-Tops In The Hopper Scott, you've been called out!
Time will tell. And perhaps Scott G of SatelliteGuys will be willing to provide a few additional bread crumbs on these matters.

There are worse things to be called than that. ;) :p
Make sure my breadcrumbs are whole wheat.. that's all the wife let's me eat
Make mine gluten-free, please!

Unfortunately, I no longer have any inside knowledge about new receivers or equipment that may be coming soon. I simply look at the uplink reports and read the tea leaves to report the stuff about new programming that I post here.

Hmmm... bread crumbs and tea leaves... suddenly I'm in the mood for brunch! :hungry

Unless this hardware is going to magically increase the bit rate to match Direct tv or ATT TV its a non starter
