How to Use Game Finder on Hopper or Wally Family Receivers

(Receiver must be connected to the internet for real-time Thuuz excitement ratings.)

Hey, I’m Nadine. One of my favorite Hopper features is Game Finder because it lets me see what’s happening in all of the games that are important to me. From seeing scores and stats to finding out which games are the most exciting, I can keep up with all of the action in any sport I want.

Let’s start with the basics. To access Game Finder on your DISH Hopper, press the Home button twice on your remote. Or press the Menu button if your remote looks like this.

Select “Apps” and then “Game Finder.” Your receiver doesn’t need to be connected to the Internet to launch Game Finder; however, you will have access to additional features if you do like checking important game stats.

Once Game Finder opens, you can see all of the games on today. You can also see what games will be on for the next three days.

See a game you want to watch? If it is on in the future, you can record it.

Or if the game is on now, you can watch it without ever leaving the app. You can also easily switch between games right in the app, so you can keep up with all of them. Pretty handy if I do say so myself.

If you want a truly customized experience, you have the option of choosing your favorite sports and teams to display on the homepage. At the top of the screen, select My Sports, Settings, and then the desired option. Once you save your selection, they will take effect on the home screen.

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