Never miss a show with Primetime Anytime

Primetime Anytime

The Hopper's exclusive feature, PrimeTime Anytime, gives you instant access to your favorite shows on ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC in HD.* You can record three hours per night of HD primetime programming automatically and store them for up to eight days after the initial air date. Just enable PrimeTime Anytime once and you'll have instant access to the best primetime programming without having to set timers. Or, if 8 days isn’t long enough, simply move any of your primetime shows to your DVR to save them for longer.

And if this wasn’t enough, add the ability to watch most of these shows entirely commercial free into the mix. AutoHop™, when enabled, lets you skip commercials automatically for most shows recorded with PrimeTime Anytime.*
