A Letter to the Networks

Dear CBS, NBC and Fox (and what the hell, ABC, too)…

Recently, there’s been some buzz that you don’t like DISH Network’s Auto Hop feature. Obviously, you don’t have it. It’s insanely cool. Please don’t take it away. See, I really, really like it — and it’s actually causing me to watch shows that I didn’t previously watch. You like that, don’t you? Also, I know you are still sneaking in product placements and ads at the bottom of the screen. Don’t think I didn’t notice. I’m cool with that, but let’s not get crazy.

Are we good? I hope so.


p.s. DISH Network Hopper with Auto Hop review coming soon!

    Hey Rachel, just ran across this and it’s nice to see, amongst all the talks of lawsuits and ruining television that cooler heads will prevail and people will actually look at Auto hop and recognize it for what it is: Awesome. I’ve been waiting for something like this ever since I was a little kid, wishing the commercials would finish and I could get back to Thundera already! I was a beta tester for the Hopper chosen from a pool of Dish employees, and I love Auto Hop. Any one that watches TV, will love Auto Hop. I definitely do, and Rachel, it’s nice to hear that you do, too.

    I don’t understand why CBS, FOX, & NBC execs don’t want us to enjoy commercial-free TV. I’m a DISH employee – AutoHop is great because you can easily watch commercial-free TV. Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group, is taking a stand for consumers by creating a petition that tells CBS, FOX, & NBC media to keep their hands out of your living room & DVR. Sign their petition to keep control of how you watch TV http://bit.ly/KFdn1Q
