Dish may have announced a smart TV app yesterday, but that doesn't mean it's quite done with the CES announcements. Here in Vegas, the company is showing off two more Dish set-top boxes, both of which are meant to work alongside the Hopper DVR to extend your TV-watching into other rooms of the house. Most notable, perhaps, is the Wireless Joey, which eliminates the physical connection to the Hopper, making it ideal for rooms that either don't have a coaxial input, or that have a wall-mounted TV setup. Instead of cables, the box uses a wireless access point with 802.11ac WiFi to create a private connection, with room for up to two set-top boxes per access point. Additionally, the aptly named Super Joey adds two additional tuners to allow for recording of up to eight simultaneous shows (any four, plus ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC).
