DISH integrates Google Nest's doorbell into its TV receiver platform
Google's Nest Hello video doorbell is a product that allows the user to see who's at their door from inside the house, via screens such as smartphones and TVs. DISH, a paid TV provider, has announced that their platform can now also supply this functionality.
This will be done through a compatible DISH receiver, which can connect to high-speed household internet to deliver content from its own service and from others such as Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube and Pandora.
DISH also integrates smart-home applications such as Google's Assistant and Amazon's Alexa, and, now, some aspect of Nest. The new addition applies to the Hopper- and Wally-type receivers, although the service has a third kind of these called Joey. However, a similar update for those devices should also roll out in the next few weeks.
