Thank you for the link. I had heard about the new Auto Hop feature at work today since I work for Dish, but I've been curious what others feel about it. It seems that many people are happy to have the choice to watch commercials on their PrimeTime Anytime recordings. The commercials are always there in case for some odd reason the viewer wants to watch them, but having a choice before each recording starts is rather nice.

Why don't CBS, FOX, and NBC execs want consumers to enjoy commercial-free TV? It's what we want! I'm a customer and employee of Dish, and I think Auto Hop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. A well-known consumer advocacy group, Public Knowledge, agrees that people should have the right to control how they watch TV. They're taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, and NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room and DVR.
