    I’m so ready for the new 2012 Lions football season to start and thanks to my new whole-home DVR, I won’t have to worry about having enough DVR space to record all my games! I have Dish’s new Hopper that holds up to 250 hours of HD content and has a 2 terabyte hard drive. It holds a separate storage space for all my prime time shows that are automatically recorded for me. I work for DISH and I can tell you those customers that sign up for Dish as new customers are now being offered the Hopper free.
