Ever since I got the adelphia DVR, I feel like I have control again of my tv viewing pleasure. I have a 21 month old daughter so the odds of watching shows during network scheduled times are slim to none. Now I can watch my shows on demand. I can tape Sesame Street and Barney for those emergency melt down sessions. My husband can tape those mythbusters shows and we can both get our tv back.
I don't watch a lot of tv, but the shows I do watch, I am passionate about. Now I can watch Desperate Housewives any day of the week at any time. I do watch 24 live because that is my mini-movie each week and I haven't been to a movie in years. (Although I do love Netflix) If my daughter stays up, fine, I'm taping my show and I can focus my quality time with her and see it later.
Now I dream of a day where we don't have commercials and we can watch all tv and movies on demand. We get busted when we actually watch live shows - we try to scan the commercials and are denied!!!! Technology rocks and I'm so glad I can watch Saturday Night Live again. I almost feel hip again.
www.netflix.com - Check out Netflix and check Tivo or your local cable company about getting DVR. The biggest difference between Tivo and my cable company DVR is that Tivo has a service fee and since I'm already getting cable, it was only about a $5.00 a month difference just to add it to our cable bill.
