Josh.ai has announced its integration with DISH’s Hopper DVR for satellite television compatibility. Available today, this integration provides the user experience of being able to walk from room to room and simply ask Josh Micro to control the DISH TV experience, including navigation and content selection.
“We’re thrilled to be the first TV provider to integrate with Josh.ai, especially because of their passion for and commitment to voice control technology,” says Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. “With Hopper integrated with Josh.ai, we’re able to provide a new integrated voice control experience for our CI dealers and their high-end clients.”
This integration between Josh.ai and DISH offers integrators an intuitive setup process. After connecting to the network, Josh.ai auto-populates supported DISH set-top-boxes, including Hopper (all generations), Wally, and Joey (all models), and provides authorization instructions. Once brought into the Josh.ai web portal, custom installers are able to seamlessly deploy a distributed media system by assigning source inputs and outputs for supported matrix switchers, receivers, and televisions throughout the home.
In addition to multi-room satellite TV control, homeowners will receive all the benefits of Josh.ai’s privacy-focused home control. Josh.ai is committed to protecting customer privacy and providing an elegant home control solution without selling or leveraging customer data for marketing purposes.
Users with DISH and Josh.ai installed in their homes will be able to ask Josh Micro to navigate the DISH guide and menu, play, pause, fast-forward, rewind, and select television content.
