The judges can take the case wherever they would like but please leave my DVR alone. A coworker at Dish showed me the Auto Hop feature a month ago and now I have an extra four hours of time a week. I have started reading A Wrinkle in Time with my daughter and have almost finished rebuilding the engine for my Ford Thunderbird. The Auto Hop was made to make my life better and it has done just that.

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
