FOX sues Dish Network over commercial skipping

You knew this would happen. FOX has filed a lawsuit against Dish Network over its new "Auto Hop" commercial skipping technology. Subscribers with the Hopper DVR can record four broadcast networks simultaneously -- called "Primetime Anytime" -- and then play back any show minus the commercials. Essentially, it converts TV's biggest shows into commercial-free, on-demand playback.

  1. If you were just to see Auto Hop and hear what it does, then I could see why the Networks would be upset. In all reality, Dish is only trying to give their customers a choice on a more simple way to fast-forward through commercials. I tried the feature out when I was catching up on my PrimeTime Anytime recordings before heading to work at Dish the next morning, and I was able to get through all my shows and still have an extra 20 minutes to spare. Dish is giving the customers a choice to enable the feature, so you can still watch commercials if you wanted to. They are not completely removing the commercials, so it is the same as a DVR with an easier way to skip the commercials
