PlayStation 3 gets Dish DVR Virtual Joey app today

Dish network subscribers can now control Hopper DVR devices through the PlayStation 3 with the launch of the Virtual Joey app today, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog.

Using Virtual Joey, users can access the Hopper through the PS3 via an Ethernet connection without hooking up additional boxes or wires. Users can then watch live shows and sports, DVR recordings and a thousands-strong selection of On Demand titles through their console. The app can be navigated using a Dish remote or DualShock 3 controller.

The Virtual Joey app will be available for download when the PlayStation Store updates later today. It can be found in the app section of the Store through the My Channels and What’s New sections.

Earlier this year, Sony announced the Dish Virtual Joey app will launch on PlayStation 4 this year as well. More details on the app's launch are forthcoming.
