Dish's New Joey Set-Top Box Is All About 4K

I like 4K. You like 4K. CES 2015 definitely 4K, and Dish is finally adding the ability to stream in this most coveted resolution with the 4K Joey, a set-top box that gives all Ultra HD TVs with HDMI 2.0 support and HDCP 2.2 support.

The device itself is pretty discreet. Dish says you should be able to fit it snuggly behind any TV, mounted on the wall of otherwise. The new Joey also has an ARM processor, can pump out 4K at 60 frames-per-second, and support HD picture-in-picture. Obviously, you still need to add this to an existing Hopper from Dish Network. The 4K Joey will be available in the middle of 2015.


In addition to the 4K Joey, Dish also announced a pretty stellar service that lets you stream ESPN goodness (among other things) for only $20 a month with Sling TV. Dish also beautified the Hopper experience with a new remote and user interface.

Oh, and the CEO danced with some kangaroo furries with a drum strapped to his chest.


Pics or it didn't happen.
