American Idol, Modern Family, and NCIS are some of the best shows I watch from PrimeTime. There are other shows that I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy now that I upgraded to the Hopper. It records all my PrimeTime shows and I can play them all back on my time. Now I can use the new Auto Hop feature to enjoy all those awesome shows commercial free. This option doesn't delete or block commercials it offers you the option to turn them off on PrimeTime programs. One of my coworkers at Dish showed me how Auto Hop works which has me excited. I sometimes fast forward too fast through the commercials only to rewind back to the start of the next scene, so this will prevent this problem and keep the batteries from dying so fast in my remote.

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 AutoHop 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. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KigXAn
