Denver-based DISH is among the Colorado companies exhibiting at CES and will introduce its DISH Explorer app for the iPad, which the company calls "an intuitive second-scree app for the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR platform that combines program-discover tools, social media engagement and remote-control capabilities."

"Customers are already using tablets while watching TV but, until Explorer, it has been two separate experiences," said Vivek Khemka, DISH VP of product management.

"What we've done is develop an integrated, seamless experience between the tablet and the television. Only the Hopper creates an entirely new viewing dynamic."

The Hopper is DISH's commercial-skipping feature released last year.

More than 150,000 visitors are expected at the 2013 CES show.
