Dish Network’s Hopper DVR is making it easier to watch prime time shows without commercial breaks. A new feature called Auto Hop lets users watch archived “Primetime Anytime” shows completely commercial-free, beginning at 1AM the day after recording. Primetime Anytime records all of the broadcast programming from ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox that airs between the hours of 8 PM and 11 PM Eastern Time simultaneously, letting you replay the shows for up to eight days after they’ve aired.
