On 12/27/17, I got the following email from Dish:
New experience is available for your Hopper
We are excited to tell you that the latest interface for your Hopper is available to download. The new look and feel will help you navigate and find your favorite content faster. It includes many improvements while maintaining the core of what makes the Hopper, the Hopper.
The new Hopper interface will automatically download to your receiver on 1/10/2018. You can download it early through the New Hopper Experience app on the Hopper by pressing the BLUE button on your remote and selecting the app.
The picture in the email looks the same as the current CUI. When you click on learn more, it goes to Dish's site that says: New Hopper User Interface. It looks and sounds exactly the same as the current one. Is this a mistake on Dish's part or is ther a new interface I don't know about? LoL
