Are they trying to throw a bone to the networks with the same-evening delay, or is there some technical reason?

I hope Dish doesn't have people in the back room reviewing all those programs as they air, noting the exact times of the commercial breaks, and punching that into a computer to be sent out to all the Hoppers to tell them what portions of the recordings to omit. Okay, I'm being facetious there. Mostly. :D

I've had programs autohop less than an hour after they air. When Autohop was first introduced it was an after 1am thing ... but now it can be earlier.
