Dish wins again in court against Fox

Fox has lost its second appeal in court trying to get certain features of the Dish Network Hopper DVR system banned. Fox wants the PrimeTime Anytime and AutoHop features banned. Fox and other TV networks aren't happy with the features because they make timeshifting and removing commercials from shows a snap.

Dish won the original case in court and then won again when Fox appealed the original ruling. Dish has announced that it has won for the second time when Fox appealed the original ruling again. PrimeTime Anytime records all primetime TV shows from the four major networks.

The AutoHop feature allows you to skip all recorded commercials on primetime content 24 hours after the show first aired. It's unclear if Fox or other networks plan to appeal the second ruling. The latest ruling was handed down by the US court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

“With this decision, the Court continues to reject Fox’s efforts to deny our customers’ access to PrimeTime Anytime and AutoHop -- key features of the Hopper Whole-Home HD DVR.

“This is a victory for American consumers, and we are proud to have stood by their side in this important fight over the fundamental rights of consumer choice and control.”
