Well, I think Auto Hop is awesome, and I’m glad someone is finally standing up to some of these networks and the insane amount of money they want for their supposedly “free” programming I got the Hopper through a Dish employee beta-tester program I took part in, and love it. It records all my favorite shows like, Community, New Girl, and 30Rock with PrimeTime Anytime. Now I have the freedom to either watch the commercials or skip through them, thanks to Auto Hop. Auto Hop is by far my favorite feature, that and Pandora make this my favorite piece of tech that I’ve purchased since the first iPad.

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
