DISH Network’s new Hopper whole-home DVR system wowed the crowds at the 2012 International CES, the world’s largest consumer technology trade show. Along with the 2TB hard drive and the innovative “Joey” client receivers, which allow you to bring the TV and DVR in up to four rooms of your house, the new PrimeTime Anytime feature was very impressive.
The Hopper’s exclusive PrimeTime Anytime feature gives you instant OnDemand access to three hours per night of HD primetime programming on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. These shows will be available for up to 8 days from the initial due date. No more having to remember to set your DVR or having to choose between your favorite shows. Best of all you still have two tuners to use to record or watch other shows during primetime, and it doesn’t take up any of your personal DVR space, so you still have enough room for over 250 hours of HD programming available.
The opportunity to watch all of the best primetime shows OnDemand and still watch and record other programming, all while conserving space on the 2TB hard drive? Sounds like the perfect solution for the TV lover in all of us!

DirecTV has told Fox Networks that it will drop the channels Nov. 1 if the two companies don’t come to an agreement in the ongoing negotiations.
Fox said late Thursday that it has offered an extension but that DirecTV “has informed us and their customers that unless we agree to their demands, they ‘will suspend our networks on Nov. 1.'”
“We have proposed to keep the Fox Networks on DirecTV for the same price, and on the same terms as they are currently carried while we attempt to work out a fair agreement.” Fox Networks said in a statement, “Unfortunately, DirecTV has decided that unless they get their way, they are going to pull the plug on their customers Nov. 1.”
Fox Networks includes FX, National Geographic Channel, 19 regional sports networks, Fox Movie Channel, Speed, Fuel TV, Fox Soccer and Fox Deportes. Fox broadcast stations and Fox News Channel are not involved in the negotiations.
