Dish scales back AutoHop in deal with Disney

By Brian Stelter, CNN Senior Media Correspondent 

Dish Network's disruptive AutoHop feature, which automatically skips all the commercials on prime time network television shows, has fallen victim to TV industry deal-making.

Dish (DISHFortune 500) announced on Monday night that it would turn off AutoHop for ABC shows until three days after a program first airs. The deal is part of a wide-ranging new contract agreement with The Walt Disney Co. (DISFortune 500), ABC's parent company.

AutoHop sparked a series of lawsuits, but the two companies said they'd drop "all pending litigation" involving the feature.
