The beauty about DVR technology is that you can record your favorite TV shows while you are away and watch them on your free time, but watching them with full commercial breaks only wastes away your precious time. Dish Network provides its subscribers with a bit of respite as it rolls out its Hopper DVRs, which comes with Auto Hop that provides you the option of automatically skipping every commercial break.

The Auto Hop functionality, however, only works with the DVR’s PrimeTime Anytime feature, which automatically records and stores primetime TV shows from ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX in HD quality for up to eight days. This eliminates the stress of having to set up recordings because the DVR does all of it for you.

Dish subscribers who do not have the prerequisite hardware, however, still have the default 30-second skip to rely on.

I don’t understand why CBS, FOX, & NBC execs don’t want us to enjoy commercial-free TV. I’m a DISH employee – AutoHop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group, is taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, & NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room & DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
