Dish says the app its users will see resembles Netflix’s other software on set-top boxes and game consoles.
For now, it’ll only be accessible on the second-gen Hopper.
Dish plans to roll out Netflix to its Joey, Super Joey, and Wireless Joey boxes “in the coming months.”
Does Netflix on Dish require Internet?
Yes. Netflix is available on Dish’s second-generation Hopper DVR. The Dish receiver needs to be connected to the internet to stream Netflix – Netflix is not delivered via satellite or cable – it is only delivered through the internet.
