Oh, those annoying commercials. Wouldn't it be great to be able to skip them? A technology actually allows you to do that, and Dish Network lets its subscribers use it via "Auto Hop," but networks are understandably not happy about that.

Dish is firing back, asking for a ruling that offering the feature is not a breach of its contract with the networks. More here from the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Hollywood Reporter.
