DISH Network is looking to put its controversial ad-skipping "Hopper" technology in service of marketers by taking the "What's Hot Now" feature and allowing advertisers to bid in real time based on viewer-interest data.

This is another really interesting potential innovation," says Warren Schlichting, DISH's senior vice president of media sales and analytics.
