#Dish reportedly cuts deal to limit controversial ad-skipping feature on ABC shows
#Auto_Hop has been surrounded by controversy since 2012. #Fox was the first network to sue Dish over the feature, with #NBC and #CBS following soon thereafter; ABC then joined the fray as well. Things intensified when Dish debuted its new DVR in 2013, known as the Hopper.
The product won CNET's "Best of CES" award initially, until #CNET parent company CBS stepped in and quashed the award because of the ongoing legal action between Dish and CBS.
