Nearly five months after its introduction at CES 2016, the HopperGo is finally available to Dish customers. This portable DVR features 64GB of built-in storage, which you can fill with movies and TV shows you've recorded on your Hopper 2, Hopper with Sling or Hopper 3 set-top box. The magic of the HopperGo is that it creates its own private network, no internet needed, and allows up to five iOS or Android devices to connect to it using the Dish Anywhere app.

The only downside to the new device is its relatively short battery life, as it only supports four hours of video on a single charge. Still, that should be enough to handle a couple movies or a few show episodes. You can also load the portable DVR with other media, including pictures and videos. Dish is pricing the HopperGo at $99 for subscribers, and you don't have to worry about paying any monthly fees.
