Any recorded show enabled with the SkipMode feature will display a SKIP icon next to the episode title in My Shows. When a commercial break starts, just press the blue VOICE button and say, “Skip it” or hit the green SKIP button on your remote, and you'll be on the other side of those commercials in the blink of an eye. If you hit the button during a program, you'll skip past your show and through the next commercial break, which is great for bypassing the dull parts you don't want to see. Although not all shows are available with the SkipMode feature, we've taken great pains to enable SkipMode on most of the most popular channels. For more information, see channel details .
