DISH Music turns DISH’s Hopper DVRs and connected Joey multiroom TV devices into music streaming zones controllable from Android or iOS smartphones and tablets. With the app, users can choose to sync the same music across rooms, or play different content in each zone. Televisions will display the metadata for the music being played, such as the artists, song name and music service. Apart from music streaming services, DISH Music will also play music from personal libraries on mobile devices and is compatible with DLNA media servers.
Additionally, DISH Music can wirelessly pair with DTS Play-Fi-enabled speakers connected to the same wireless network. Currently, DTS Play-Fi boasts the largest ecosystem of whole-home wireless partners, including Aerix, Anthem, Arcam, Definitive Technology, Klipsch, MartinLogan, McIntosh, Paradigm, Phorus, Polk Audio, Rotel, Sonus Faber, Thiel Audio and Wren, with products from Elite, Integra, Pioneer, Onkyo, Soundcast, SVS Sound and more forthcoming.
“It can be both difficult and expensive to achieve synchronized and high-quality whole-home audio,” says Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “DISH Music is a great whole-home sound solution designed to meet the needs of our customers, as it works with existing audio equipment and is available at no additional cost.”
The DISH Music app is available for download today in the Apple App Store, Google Play Store and Amazon app marketplace. Now available on Hopper 2, Hopper 3 and connected Joey clients at no additional cost.
