& DISH Hopper Bring Voice Control to Satellite TV, the Denver-based home-automation company specializing in natural language voice control, today announced the integration of its voice platform into Dish’s Hopper DVRs.

Following an “intuitive setup process,” the integration enables Hopper DVR owners to control the satellite TV service throughout the home using natural language voice commands to navigate the program guide, select channels by number or name, access recording features, and play/pause or fast-forward/rewind selected content, among other things.

The voice integration also supports compound commands like, “Watch (pick your show), turn up the volume on the TV, draw the shades 40%, and dim the lights a little.”
