Dish Netwok’s SlingLoaded ViP922 DVR Available Now

Posted Thu Apr 8, 2010 at 10:00 AM PDT by Mike Attebery

It’s been over a year since we first got to see the ViP922, but it’s finally available.

If you’ve been waiting to upgrade your Dish DVR, now’s the time. The ViP922 is a slick DVR that’s packed full of features, including SlingBox functionality.

The coolest functionality in any Sling product is the ability to send your TV signal to somewhere else. If you want to watch something on a capable mobile device or a laptop, you’re good to go. The Sling functionality utilizes a separate chip in the unit itself, so your DVR performance won’t be affected.

The ViP922 has a full terabyte of hard drive space, so you’ll really have to make the effort to run out of room. It’s got two tuners, and it’s got some internet features to boot.

Dish’s latest DVR also comes with a pair of remotes. There’s a standard remote for the old school crowd, and a new touchpad style remote for folks looking for something a bit different.

You can pick this ViP922 up now for $649. If you’re an existing Dish customer, it’ll run you between $200 and $400.
