Most of us that work here at DISH are also customers, and the general feeling in my office is that the choice is what makes this great. Almost all of the shows I watch are already recorded with PrimeTime Anytime, so I can already use Auto Hop on them all. It wasn't until Auto Hop came around that I realized how long all the commercials were, as it only took me about 41 minutes to watch an entire episode of NCIS. So I saved about 19 minutes of time to catch up on another episode before work.
