DISH today launched its Voice Remote, featuring voice recognition, a clickable touchpad and backlighting. This remote controls navigation, search and content selection on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey set-top boxes.
“Voice Remote is simple to use, affordable and, most impressively, operates with incredible speed and accuracy,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH executive vice president and chief technology officer. “Leveraging modern navigation paradigms like touch and voice, this remote represents a complete reinvention of the outdated remote control customers have come to expect from cable providers.”
