The following article was published by The Motley Fool and is misleading!

$99 one time fee is only if you choose minimum basic programming.
The system is Free for qualified programming of America’s Top 200 and up.
Finally! The device generations of TV watchers have fantasized about owning is now available; it’s a wonder it took so long to hit the market. Satellite broadcaster DISH Network has introduced a new DVR with a feature that can almost completely eliminate commercials for recorded TV. Reaction from the big broadcasters has been muted so far, save for the occasional irate outburst. Will this lethal, new, commercial-killer eliminate their most lucrative source of revenue?
A DVR that skips commercials isn’t exactly a new invention. Many recorders in use today give users the ability to fast-forward rapidly over ads. The difference between these devices and DISH Network’s new offering is that the latter’s “auto hop” feature cuts them out entirely, save for a brief flash of black screen.
There’s little doubt that auto hop will be popular. Who really wants to deal with ads, even of the fast-forwarded variety? What’ll help is the company’s edge-of-affordable price point for this service, which is to be $10 extra per month for its subscribers after a one-time $99 fee.”
DISH subscribers will now get the feature viewers have been waiting for since the beginning of television — the choice
to automatically skip over commercials. The new Auto Hop capability for the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR
system was activated May 10, 2012, and it allows customers to skip all commercials for most recorded primetime HD
programs shown on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC when viewed the day after airing.
“Viewers love to skip commercials,” said Vivek Khemka, vice president of DISH Product Management. “With the Auto
Hop capability of the Hopper, watching your favorite shows commercial-free is easier than ever before. It’s a
revolutionary development that no other company offers and it’s something that sets Hopper above the competition.”
DISH is the nation’s third-largest pay-TV provider, delivering TV service to millions of families nationwide. DISH
launched the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR system in mid-March, giving viewers the ability to record up to six shows
at once while playing back HD content in up to four rooms.
Auto Hop is an extension of the Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime™ capability, the exclusive feature that allows viewers,
with one click, to record all of the primetime TV programming on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC in HD — the networks that
deliver some of the most popular shows during primetime.
The Hopper automatically stores these shows for eight days after they have aired, creating an on-demand library of
approximately 100 hours of primetime TV shows, and making it easy to access episodes from last night, or last week.
“The magic of PrimeTime Anytime is that it allows DISH subscribers to catch up on all primetime shows, including
episodes recorded over the past week and recommended by friends, family, and co-workers after they’ve already been
broadcast,” said Khemka. “With Hopper, you have access to all primetime HD programs broadcast by the four major
networks. Now you can watch many of those shows commercial-free, with Auto Hop.”
Auto Hop, using patented technology, works with most shows recorded using PrimeTime Anytime. A viewer can watch
a show with the Auto Hop option commercial-free starting at 1 a.m. ET, after a show has been recorded to the
Hopper’s PrimeTime Anytime library. Prior to that, The Hopper’s 30-second “hop forward” feature continues to work for
Auto Hop does not work on live broadcasts.
Lauded by reviewers as the best whole-home DVR for its intuitive user interface, never-before-seen features and
reasonable pricing, the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR system makes it easy to enjoy HD programs in multiple rooms.
PCMagazine named the Hopper an “Editor’s Choice” among DVR products and calls the award-winning and
innovative Hopper “one of the best DVRs we’ve ever seen.”
ENGADGET has similar praise for the Hopper and the PrimeTime Anytime feature “because it allows us to discover
shows anytime after they first aired, so if you learn of a great new show while wasting time at the water cooler, it isn’t
too late to go home and watch it or choose to save it for a later viewing. It’s a step towards a future where we can
watch whatever we want without having to plan in advance or consult a list to make sure our shows will be recorded.
What else can we say? It just works.”
