Networks Shift Times, Run Longer Shows
Just another reason to be on DirecTV and have TiVo.
Speaking of DirecTV, I guess I don't realize how much I like the
service. To be honest, I really didn't care if I had satellite or cable
when I got TiVo almost three years ago so long as I could get the
dual-tuner TiVo. Prior to that I hadn't had anything but rabbit
ears for 7+ years because I didn't see the reason in spending the money
because I couldn't be in front of the TV when something was on.
We were at a friends house (no TiVo and regular cable) and I was trying to find a
show for the kiddos to watch. So I asked if they had a guide or info
screen to see what's currently on and what channel I was on. I ended up
looking at the channel lineup guide (hardcopy) and tuned to the TV Guide channel
and waited and waited to get what I needed.
I figure digital cable and other satellites have the info bar and channel
guide on-demand but I just hadn't realized how much I use it or at least expect
it to be there.
