This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of DISH for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

A long time ago I took my TV back. I quit Cable.

I was finding that every bill I opened was completely different and it was getting…well…old. And the features that I was being offered were low and non-existent and pretty unadvanced for a family of bloggers and techy-aged children. If you are in that same spot, I wanted to introduce you to a little company you might have already heard about.

Dish Network

DISH is a leader in satellite TV, providing subscribers with the highest-quality programming and cutting-edge technology designed with consumers in mind, all at the best value. DISH delivers satellite TV for more than 14 million subscribers!

Now I don't know about your household, but we have ipads and ipods and iphones and 2 computers. We are so connected some days I think my head my explode, but in my cases its a really fun thing. But even with several TVs in the house, it seems like dad wants to watch the Home network shows and Charlotte wants to watch Nick JR and P is now wanting Mickey Mouse Club House.

This is precisely why The Hopper from Dish is such a great thing.

The Hopper™ is a Whole-Home HD DVR available only from DISH. Only the Hopper lets you watch live and recorded TV anywhere and instantly skip commercials in recorded primetime TV on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC. Plus, you can record 6 different shows at the same time during primetime and store up to 2,000 hours of your favorite shows!

Now I don't have to fight over the TV with my family, I can take my iPad to the couch, pop in some headphones and watch what MOM wants to watch. I can record more than one show at a time, which is good because I have more than one show at a time I want to see, and we can avoid the family conflicts when it comes to the 6pm TV hour in my house.

Plus, check this out…..FREE! FREE!

Get the Hopper™ free when you sign up for DISH. Packages starting at $24.99. (For 12 months with 24 month commitment. Restrictions Apply.)
