After several of my co-workers at Dish suggested a Hopper would solve my DVR timer conflicts, I had a Hopper installed. So far, itís been great to have a whole-home HD DVR, and I no longer miss shows due to conflicts with my timers. I love the new Auto Hop feature because it gives me the choice to watch my PrimeTime Anytime recordings in HD without commercials! This has become my most favorite part of my Hopper because I no longer have to manually fast-forward through commercials.

Why donít CBS, FOX, and NBC execs want consumers to enjoy commercial-free TV? Itís what we want! Iím 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. Theyíre 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
