Learn More About DISH's Auto Hop Feature

June 07, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 464

The Auto-Hop feature was created by DISH to automatically hop over commercials during the evening hours with the Prime Time Anytime feature. This feature is available on the Hopper and Joey system. The Hopper is the primary high-definition unit with a digital video recorder while the Joey's are secondary high-definition receivers that utilize a tuner from the Hopper. This feature is only available during primetime broadcasting when recorded on the Hopper set-top box with Prime Time Anytime. Existing (DVR) Digital Video Recorder customers already have the option to skip over the commercials with skip forward button that hops forward thirty seconds. The purpose of this feature is to provide a more enjoyable experience for the end-user. Those who prefer to skip over the commercials can automatically do so with the Hopper rather than having to press the button every time a show goes into commercial.

The Auto-Hop Feature is used with programming stored on the Hopper using Prime Time Anytime option that allows on-demand access at 1a.m. the following day. This automatically stores the four major networks for up to eight days after they have aired. It then creates an on-demand library of primetime TV shows allowing easy access to episode from the previous evening up to eight days.

Frequently asked questions:

Q: Can I still view commercials if I want to?

A: Absolutely, just disable the Auto-Hop feature.

Q: How does a customer get Auto-Hop?

A: A customer must have a Hopper receiver as well as enable the Prime Time Anytime feature.

Q: Does Auto-Hop work with the Joey?

A: Yes, it works with a Joey same as the Hopper.

Q: If I save a Prime Time Anytime event to my DVR, can I still use Auto-Hop on that event?

A: Yes, as long as Prime Time Anytime is enabled.

Q: What if I turn off Prime Time Anytime and then turn it back on. Does Auto-Hop still stay on the events that were previously recorded with Prime Time Anytime?

A: Yes.

Q: How do I know when I'm skipping over commercials?

A: There will be a small red Hopper icon that appears briefly on the screen.

Q: Can this feature be enabled on any other shows besides Prime Time Anytime?

A: No, Auto-Hop is a patented technology that jumps over the commercials; it does not remove them. At times, you may see a split second or two of a commercial; however, it should never jump your show.

Q: Is there an additional charge for the Auto-Hop feature?

A: No
