Alexa is a virtual assistant with a female voice that talks to you in a conversational manner. Basically, “Alexa” is to Amazon what “Siri” is to Apple.  Alexa answers most of your questions based on cloud service and a command list. It has also integrated features to make it compatible with third-party devices like the Hopper.

By integrating Amazon Alexa, you can control the features of your Hopper, Joey or Wally without having to pick up the remote. Your Amazon Alexa has to be already initiated, please contact Amazon for help with your initial set up before integrating with DISH.
