Wires are seriously annoying. In a world where everything is wireless nowadays, it’s kind of hard to tolerate devices that still rely on them.

DISH fans who hate wires can now opt to get the Wireless Joey, which allows customers to bring the Joey system with them anywhere without the need for Ethernet or coaxial wiring. Basically, it’s the same experience as a regular wired Joey but with the freedom to go anywhere. The Wireless Joey comes with PrimeTime Anytime, AutoHop and the same abilities to rewind, pause, record, fast-toward and view TV stuff as the other Joey system, too.
The Wireless Joey is also the first in the industry to feature 802.11ac wireless technology, which provides a stronger signal and faster data transfer speeds (up to three times faster than other competitor’s wireless video offerings). The new wireless Joey is powered by a 900MHz 2000 DMIPS BCM7418 processor, in addition to a Broadcom BCM4360 802.11ac chip that operates at the 5Ghz band. DISH users can add the Wireless Joey to their entertainment system for a one-time fee of $50 for the wireless access point then pay $7 a month for each device they want in their home (each wireless access point can accommodate three Wireless Joey devices).
