Dish AutoHop Lets You Skip the Super Bowl Game and Just Watch the Ads

DISH AutoHop feature on the Hopper can be reversed and you can skip the Super Bowl Game instead of the Commercials.

Dish announced today that they allow owners of the Dish Hopper HD DVR to skip straight to the Super Bowl commercials, rather than skip over them in the Super Bowl broadcast. The Reverse AutoHop will be available on the day after Super Bowl Sunday. So you cannot skip over the game and to just the commercials on Sunday.

"This day is about two things: football and commercials, and for good reason -- both are entertaining and our customers love them,” said Vivek Khemka, DISH senior vice president of product management. “We’ve decided to flip our user-enabled ad-skipping feature on its head so customers can watch the ads uninterrupted the next day when everyone is talking about them.” 

How does the Reverse AutoHop work?

Customers can enable the “Reverse AutoHop” feature the day after the game to skip the game and watch the commercials back-to-back. Hopper customers must have the PrimeTime Anytime feature enabled for NBC prior to the game. If customers want to re-watch the game, they have that option as well.
