Now available: Sonic/DISH TV bundle, with 4K Hopper 3

I'm pleased to announce that Sonic now offers a new bundled satellite TV offering, from DISH TV! Members who bundle either DISH or DIRECTV with their Sonic service will receive $10/mo off their Sonic bill, for a full year.

The ability to bundle with either DIRECTV or DISH also makes Sonic a really useful resource: by offering both, we can help you understand the pros and cons of DISH versus DIRECTV, and help you select the best fit. Each service has unique advantages, so you will find it useful to talk to a team that can give you the straight scoop on both.

The timing is great, because DISH just released the new Hopper 3, a 4K capable advanced DVR which can record up to sixteen shows at once. Netflix will be fully integrated, and the service includes a year of Netflix (or a year's service credit on your existing Netflix account), free. For more on the Hopper 3, see:
Wired - Hopper 3 Is the Most Ludicrously Powerful Cable Box Ever

DISH's most popular television service package costs just $49.99/mo, and the Hopper DVR is $15/mo. (Pricing is guaranteed for three full years, this isn't a teaser rate!) With $10/mo off your Sonic service, and a $9.99/mo Netflix credit, it's a pretty awesome setup.

If you'd like to talk about TV options with our team, please ring sales at 1-888-766-4233.

You'd have to stop that order and start over with Sonic directly. Sorry! What timing! (And, were you able to secure a Hopper 3? It's not always the offered hardware.)

Funny coincidence: my own order for DISH at home is also scheduled for installation on Saturday. Looking forward to watching the Superbowl commercials on Sunday on my new Hopper 3!

How may hours of broadcast can the DVR record? My current DVR with my cable company (not C*mc*st) is full around 20 hours of HD TV.

Up to 500 hours of HD. You can find a comparison of the older and new equipment here, plus links to news coverage about the new Hooper 3:

Hello Dane

Yes I get the new hopper 3.
This was the reason I went with dish in the first place.
Sounds like that a great piece of equipment.
Good to see that sonic can offer this partnership with dish even when I am a day late to the party.

What a timing on my part. Lol.

are you interested in a little (install) race?
Whoever of the two of us gets the hopper first gets a beer or a coffe from the "looser" lol.

Yep, the $10/mo discount can be applied to any service.

I got my own new DISH service installed today, and it was quick and easy. I love the simple $65/mo ($49.99+$15.00) total pricing for three years. We really struggle with getting customers on board with DTV's many jumps in price through the term and after.

I'm waiting for take-out and watching live and DVR content off my Hopper 3 while the kitchen packs up the to-go! So cool.

It's not required, but if you skip it, there's a large up-front payment to secure the costs of the hardware. I'll check with the team and see how much this is and let you know.
