DISH Network is making a ton of noise lately with technology advancements, and firing them out to customers quickly. Case in point, they recently announced their Google TV solution which, quite frankly, is pretty sweet and pretty reasonably priced at $179.
“Only DISH Network customers will have access to the most fully-featured Google TV experience available, which includes our unique pairing protocol for simultaneous search capabilities across Web and DVR content, as well as DISH Network’s VOD programming,” said DISH Network Chief Marketing Officer Ira Bahr. “Customers can now surf the Web, check email, interact with social media, and find additional online television content all from the comfort of their living room sofa.”
“Google TV makes the Web another channel on your TV by bringing the Internet together with the TV programming you know and love,” said Rishi Chandra, lead product manager for Google TV. “We’re excited to work with DISH Network to bring an enhanced Google TV experience to its subscribers so they can find even more content to watch – whether on their DVR, TV or the Web.”
DISH Network’s Google TV solution, which requires a DVR integration service of $4 per month, includes the Logitech Revue with Google TV, a small set-top box available for a special price of $179 (MSRP $299) – an exclusive deal for DISH Network customers.
The Google TV experience is compatible with DISH Network ViP series HD DVR satellite TV receivers including the ViP 622, ViP 722 and ViP 722k.
Customers can order by logging in to their DISH Network account at www.dish.com or by calling 800-894-9131. Equipment will be shipped directly to the customer. After the Revue is connected, an onscreen wizard walks the customer step-by-step through the set-up process.
DISH Network also makes its Google TV experience available to customers who purchase a Logitech Revue or Sony Internet TV powered by Google TV from retail outlets; however, the special $179 offer is only available when customers order directly from DISH Network.
