"Dish has agreed to restrict the ability of its Hopper DVR to automatically skip over ads when Dish customers watch ABC shows, according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. The agreement comes as part of a larger retransmission deal that will continue to give Dish the ability to carry broadcast and cable networks owned by Disney, including ABC and ESPN.

Consumers will still be able to manually fast-forward through ads recorded by their DVR. However, they won’t be able to access the Hopper’s automatic ad-skipping feature, dubbed Auto Hop, until three days after the show aired on TV."

The new agreement covers carriage of all the ABC-owned broadcast stations, ABC Family, Disney Channel, ESPN and ESPN2, as part of an Internet delivered, IP-based multi-channel offering.
For the first time, DISH customers will be able to access Disney’s live and video-on-demand products, including WatchESPN, WATCH Disney, WATCH ABC Family and WATCH ABC using Internet devices in the home and elsewhere.
It also covers new Disney networks. Those include Fusion (a joint venture with Univision), which programs news and other programming for the millennial generation; the SEC Network, a channel ESPN plans to launch later this year, will carry sports events from the Southeast Conference, which is a football powerhouse most years; Disney Junior; the Longhorn Network; and ESPN 3.
In addition, DISH, ESPN and ESPN Deportes subscribers will get access to the live and video-on-demand channel ESPN3, and DISH will launch ESPNEWS, ESPNU, Disney Channel and ABC Family in high definition. ESPN Classic will be reintroduced as a video-on-demand channel.
