PrimeTime Anytime was one of the main reasons why I decided to purchase a Hopper, so now hearing news of Auto Hop, is really just icing on the cake for me! I was away on vacation for a couple days when news of Auto Hop released, so luckily when I got back yesterday, one of my coworkers at Dish had the good news to tell me. I tried it out last night on my own PrimeTime Anytime shows and am honestly very impressed! I love how I had the option to choose if I wanted to sit through commercials or not during my favorite show's season finales!
