Direct-to-home satellite TV provider DISH unveiled Thursday its new Voice Remote, featuring voice recognition and clickable touchpad, designed to help viewers navigate, search for and select content on Hopper 3 and 4K Joey set-top boxes.
The diminutive remote, which measures 5.59 (L) x 2.25 (W) x 1.02(D) inches, is said to be about half the size of a traditional remote control, and was designed to fit comfortably in the palm of the hand.
The DISH Voice Remote will “interpret natural language, populating search results based on program title, actor or genre, and building contextual searches to narrow options, as desired,” the company said.
Voice commands can also be used to control basic functions of the receiver, including recording and changing channels.
