Dish's 4K Set-Top Box Wins CES 2015 Editors' Choice Award12 Jan, 2015 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Dish Network’s new 4K Joey set-top box received the CES 2015 Editors' Choice award from a panel of editorial staff from Reviewed.com, a division of USA Today. The website is an official media partner with the International Consumer Electronics Show held Jan. 6-9 in Las Vegas.
The CES 2015 Editors' Choice recognizes outstanding innovation, design and value across 13 different product categories: automotive, gaming, headphones, health & fitness, home appliance, home theater, laptops & tablets, parenting tech, photo & video, smart home, smartphones, televisions and wearables. The 4K Joey was one of six recipients in the television category.
The 4K Joey is the first Ultra-HD set-top box from a pay-TV provider that is compatible with all HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2-compliant 4K televisions. It is the second win in a row for Joey, which as “Super Joey” a year ago was recognized by CES for its upgraded features from the Hopper with Sling DVR.
“To be the first pay-TV provider that launches a 4K set-top box means that as consumer demand for 4K grows, Dish is prepared with a future-proofed solution that will connect viewers with the Ultra-HD content they want to see,” Vivek Khemka, Dish SVP of product management, said in a statement.
