Dish essentially has doubled the amount of content users can record at one time.

All of that allows for what Dish has called a conflict-free TV experience.

Dish clearly has its foot square on the pedal with its new Web TV offering, promising to unveil Sling TV by the end of the month for jst $20, and bringing on a slew of $5 add-on packages along the way.

For now, Dish is touting its latest satellite TV features, including the coming 4K content, and swears Sling TV won’t canabalize its core business.

Unveiled at the 2016 International CES in January, the Hopper 3 features 16 tuners, support for 4K content, universal search for Netflix, a new remote and a streamlined interface.

The previous major upgrade to the Dish Network's Hopper and whole-home DVR featured the Super Joey, which added two tuners, so the new set-top box rightfully could have been called the "Mega Hopper." Instead, the company went for the more low-key moniker of the Hopper 3, downplaying the box's most significant feature: the fact that it's is equipped with enough tuners to let users record up to 16 shows at once.

On the tech end, the Hopper 3 is powered by a Broadcom 7445 chipset, with a quad-core ARM processor, running at 1.5 GHz, 21K DMIPS, Dish noted.

That makes the Hopper 3 seven times more powerful than Direc TV's newest Genie and twice as powerful as the Ti Vo Bolt, according to Dish.

In recent years, Dish introduced its Joey extenders, which allowed for streaming of recorded and live TV to other wired rooms in the home.

Then it supersized the Joey by adding two more tuners to the mix.

Since introducing its Sling-based TV-anywhere solution and whole-home DVR three years ago, Dish has remained one hop ahead of the competition.

Since its launch, the Hopper has featured Sling technology that allowed for the streaming of content from the living room to almost anywhere in the world that had an Internet connection.

Dish later added the Wireless Joey system, which allowed viewers to share video content virtually anywhere in the house via a Wi Fi network, thus taking a cue from AT&T's U-verse and cutting the cord.
