Hey guys, I’m Nadine. By pairing your Hopper, Wally, or Joey to the Google Assistant, you can enjoy hands-free TV by controlling your DISH TV with just your voice. With a simple voice command, you can change channels, play a show from your DVR, pause live TV, and more. Here’s how!
If you’re setting up a new Google Home device, make sure to connect it to your account using the Google Home app.
To pair DISH to your Google account, open the Google Assistant app on your smartphone and select the Explore icon. Select “Settings,” and then “Home Control.” Select the plus icon, and then select DISH from the list.
To get a pairing code, go to your receiver’s Menu by pressing the Home button twice or Menu button once on your remote. From here, select “Settings,” “Google Assistant,” and then “Get Code.”
Enter the code displayed on your TV into the app on your mobile device, and then select “Activate.”
Once your devices are shown, give them nicknames and assign them to the correct room within your home.
That’s it! Now, you can say commands like, “Hey Google, turn on DISH in the living room.” Or “OK Google, pause.”
Or you can change channels by saying, “OK Google, go to the History Channel.”
You can search for shows, movies, actors, and more. Just say a command like, “Hey Google, show me Tom Hanks movies on the Hopper.”
You can even turn off your receiver by saying, “Hey Google, turn off DISH.”

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