Auto Hop will skip commercials but only on recorded programs

Dish's Hopper and Joey DVR hubs have just been upgraded with a new feature called Auto Hop. It lets users automatically skip commercials on recorded shows with the press of a single button, though there are some restrictions. For example, only primetime HD programs on ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC are supported, and they need to start at 1:00AM.

More importantly, the commercials will be skipped over only when the recordings are watched one day after they aired. The service will come to Hopper's PrimeTime Anytime subscribers only. Auto Hop won't skip commercial on live broadcasts. The Hopper DVR lets users record up to six shows at the same time.

Dish said it's the only company offering such a feature.
