DISH Network has teamed up with Sling Media to give users of its Hopper set-top box the ability to watch live programming on PCs, tablets and mobile devices, even outside the home. The feature will be standard for DISH customers, and is "the first product from any major pay-TV provider that gives users the built-in option to watch their entire channel lineup's live programming" on the go. Also, DISH is working on building out the Hopper's "What's Hot Now" feature to allow advertisers to bid in real time based on viewer-interest data.
