Dish Network Tweaks Its Hopper Ad-skipping Dvr

DISH Network has made a series of tweaks to its Hopper digital video recorders that allow subscribers to skip commercials a day after programs are recorded. Among them Users may now select which channels to record instead of merely recording every program on the air; they may now delete programs at a time that they choose; and the cursor now defaults to "no" instead of "yes" after subscribers are asked whether they want to skip ads. Reporting on the changes, Daily Variety commented today (Thursday) "While the changes may seem minor, they seem to represent a calculated strategy on Dish's behalf to shift responsibility to viewers for the recording and ad-skipping rather than let them passively receive these features."

I travel a lot for Dish so it was always hard to find time to watch TV. After I started using the Auto Hop I was able to catch up with the entire season of Hell’s kitchen. Then, as if I didn’t love Dish enough, they gave me the option to delete my primetime recordings when I want. I don’t mind that ‘no’ is selected by default when starting the Auto Hop. If I’m not pressed for time I do enjoy watching commercials sometimes.
