As much as technology has advanced in the past couple of decades, the ability to automatically skip commercials has remained mostly in the past. Now Zatz Not Funny TiVo's DVRs wants to get a updated version of their SkipMode feature that bypasses commercials automatically.
Because of the way SkipMode works, it wants to apply only to recordings of primetime shows on channels that have their commercials marked, unlike the fully automated systems that the Channels app and Tablo boxes are testing. It's so obviously going to work on the box with the latest "Hydra" interface.
ReplayTV pushed automatic commercial skateboarding over the feature with broadcasters and cable companies helped bust its demise , TiVo would make using it easier than ever, plus it makes watching network TV more like Netflix, Amazon Prime or ad- free hulu. DVR owners do not manually skip ads as much as they might think.
