I still think they need to design a co-op with Roku or Amazon for a Dish streaming device. I had a name for it and everything, and unfortunately I can’t remember it.

No. It was a Marsupial. I believe the Pademelon
Hmm... let's put it to a vote to see which name people like better. (Anything to keep this thread active, so Dish will be tricked into thinking that people still care about HBO.)

Can’t use an opossum. That would be bad marketing. Not many people have heard of a Pademelon, and once they looked it up... being smaller than a wallaby(or Wally), it fits in line with the marsupial name and is marketable, plus being a small USB device to bring an additional service, Pademelon is perfect.

I have been subscribing to HBO for awhile though Amazon Prime, but I don't watch it anywhere near as much as I did on Dish. It is a case of "out of sight, out of mind." Shows that I would have watched almost immediately on my DVR now go months before I watch them on the app, if at all. With Bill Maher on a break for awhile, it may be time for me to take a long hiatus.

Okay, now this is funny. Earlier, I tried using Alexa to change the channel on the Hopper Duo to the Classic Yule Log by saying "Alexa, go to channel 304 on Bedroom 1." The Hopper Duo changed to the correct channel, but Alexa responded "Tuning to three-hundred-four, HBO2 Pacific on Dish. This is Deadwood the Movie" while the screen is showing a burning log. Somehow, that seemed kind of appropriate. :)

Seriously, though, it is terrible that after all this time, Alexa still thinks that HBO is on these channel numbers on Dish, especially since it breaks the functionality of the On Demand Menu (channel 300) and Netflix (channel 302) whenever I try to use Alexa to change to those channel numbers. This issue really needs to be fixed.
