ordering movies or TV shows. There are over 90 networks of shows

on-demand. Opticaltel can provide a device that allows your DVR to pick
up your unit's wifi i if it is inconvenient to get an ethernet wire to
your DVR. Contact Opticaltel if you have any questions. The DVR
we have is not the "Hopper" because Dish does not yet make the Hopper

subscriber to watch all networks shows live or on-demand anywhere on
the planet they have access to the internet! (This should be very
popular with snowbirds.)
