Television programming is better than ever these days, and we can’t get enough of it. For over a decade now, we’ve been enjoying the ability to time-shift our favorite shows, and watch them whenever we find convenient. We couldn’t even tell you what night most television shows are actually broadcast anymore, because it just doesn’t matter. The DISH Hopper is the perfect solution for that when we’re at home: just program and press the button and you can watch your shows whenever you want. But TV fans are demanding people, and soon we wanted to take our favorite programs  with us on the go.

So, along came DISH Anywhere to solve the problem, and it’s done an admirable job. Until we all realized that our smartphones and tablets were getting full too quickly, and streaming programming used up too much of our data. Seriously, how are we supposed to watch Game of Thrones on the plane when our tablet is full? #FirstWorldProblems

Don’t worry folks, DISH has solved that problem too, and once again made our lives better by creating the HopperGO. This brilliant little device allows you to take up to 100 hours of programming with you wherever you go. That’s not all: you can stream that content to your devices (up to 5) over a private Wi-Fi Network, with no cell data needed! So don’t worry about deleting holiday photos off your smartphone or tablet to squeeze on another episode of The Walking Dead, the HopperGO provides all the storage you need. Even better, this 5GB “Mini-Hopper” is battery-powered and will last about four hours on a charge.

Did you have to drive your family to the in-laws house for Thanksgiving? Imagine every member of the family wearing headphones and streaming his or her own shows for the entire duration of that trip next time. The backseat is all Paw Patrol and Dora the Explorer, while your wife is catching up with The Real Housewives in the front seat. You’re supposed to be focused on driving, so no screen for you —it’s Podcast time.

Even better, once you get there you won’t have to listen to the kids complain about watching the Cowboys and Lions game on the big screen with Uncle Johnny. They can each pick their own show off the HopperGO to watch on their phones. Really, that is what Thanksgiving is all about, isn’t it? With 100 hours of programming, you will have plenty of choices for the car ride back home again, too. Just make sure you charge the battery so it will have enough juice to keep your family entertained while you wait in line for Black Friday sales.

If you’re ready to make this HopperGO dream a reality, you’re going to love this Cyber Monday HopperGO offer. Now through Dec. 11th, you can call DISH from this promotion page and mention the offer code “Free HopperGO” to get a free HopperGO with any DISH base pack (must include a DVR: Hopper 2 or Hopper 3 versions required). The FREE HopperGO comes with a NEW subscription to DISH only, and restrictions apply.
