As per Dish's agreement with NBC, Dish’s AutoHop ad-skipping functionality won't be available for NBC stations until seven days after a program first airs.
Yep....I've learn that the first commercial break is shorter than the rest. Usually around the two minute 30 second mark. Subsequent breaks, I stop at 3 minutes and 30 seconds. That's sometimes spot on or just a click or two away.Well if they think having the delay will force customers to watch the commercials, they are mistaken! On shows that don't have autohop, i've become a pro at skip ahead several times quickly so I dont even have to watch one commercial.
