Along with announcing a shiny new 4K receiver, Dish has revealed a portable device for the streaming generation: HopperGo. Pictured above, this tiny gadget will let Dish subscribers take up to 100 hours of DVR recordings with them anywhere they, well, go. Dish explains the HopperGo turns into its own WiFi hotspot and creates a private cloud, which then allows you to stream shows or movies on an iPad or Android device. The Hopper Go features 64GB of built-in storage, about four hours of battery life and supports up to five devices simultaneously -- the company claims video quality is "optimized for smartphones and tablets."

Additionally, you're also able to load other media into it, such as personal pictures or videos. Those of you who have a Dish account can get the HopperGo for $99 later in 2016 (by the end of Q1, we're told), and there are no monthly fees to worry about. However, you will need a Hopper 2 or Hopper with Sling box.
