Hi, I’m Nadine. Let me show you how to edit the appearance of the programming guide on your DISH Hopper.

From your receiver’s Menu, select the Settings tile. Then scroll down to and select “Guide.”

Here, you can choose to make the guide text larger or smaller; change the order in which channels appear; hide duplicate SD channels if there’s an HD version available; and more.

Thanks for watching, and I’ll see you next time.

Hey guys, I’m Nadine.

Make your DISH Hopper programming more personalized to the channels you want to watch by setting up a Favorites list. Here’s how!

From your receiver’s Menu, select the Settings tile.

Select the “Favorite Channels” tile.

Select an open list, and then select “Edit Channels.”

Add all of your favorite channels here! If you know your favorite channel numbers, type them out. Or go ahead and scroll through the list to select your channels.

Once complete, press the Back or Cancel button on your remote.

Now, select the list you just added channels to and select “Edit Name.”

Use the onscreen keypad to change the list name so you can easily identify it, and then select “Save.”

Press the Guide button on your remote.

Then press the Options button or red color button.

Select “Favorite Channels,” and then your list.

See, gone are the days of scrolling through the guide to find your favorite channels – now, you can only see the ones that are important to you.

You can easily create a list for everyone in your family!

If for any reason your channels aren’t appearing in the guide, reference the top of the screen to see what channels are displaying.

If needed, go back to the Guide Options screen, then Favorite Channels, and then select your list.

Thanks for watching, and I’ll see you next time.
