Hi, I’m Nadine. With Amazon Alexa integration, you can control your Hopper, Wally, or Joey receiver with simple voice commands. Let me show you how to pair your Amazon Alexa to your receiver.
First, make sure your Alexa-enabled device is plugged in and set up. Next, on your mobile device, download the Amazon Alexa app from your phone’s app store. Log in to the app.
Select the Menu icon along the upper-left corner, and then “Settings.” Under the “Alexa Preferences” section, choose “TV & Video.”
Scroll down and select the plus symbol next to “DISH,” and then “Enable Skill.”
Go to your receiver’s menu by pressing the Home button twice or Menu button once on your remote, depending on the model. Select “Settings,” and then “Amazon Alexa.” Choose “Get Code.”
Enter the code on the TV screen into the Alexa app on your mobile device, and then select “Activate.” Select “Done” on your TV screen.
Then, in the Alexa app, choose “Next” to begin the linking process. Select the “X” at the top of the Alexa app, and then wait for Alexa to discover your DISH receiver.
Select the desired receiver from the list, and then choose “Continue.”
In the next window, select the desired Amazon Alexa device, and then “Link Devices.” Select “Link Another Device” to pair an Alexa-enabled device to another receiver. Or choose “Return to DISH” to finish.
Now, you can use Amazon Alexa to perform a bunch of commands. Say, “Alexa, turn on DISH” to watch TV.
You can search for shows, movies, actors, and more. Just say a command like, “Alexa, find Tom Hanks movies.” Or say, “Alexa, skip forward, skip back, or pause” to perform those actions when watching your shows.
