DVRs Set to Become Even More Popular

Jun 10, 2009  •  Post A Comment

If Cablevision ultimately wins a little-known suit with programmers about DVRs, it could change the face of TV viewing in even more dramatic ways than DVRs do now, according to a column in Barron’s.

  1. The problem with that article (and most others like it) is that it gives lip service to consumer concerns and continues to ignore (like entertainment industry, in general) consumer interests.
    We want the digital equivalent of a VCR, pure and simple. No added “features.” Forget the “cloud” and networked devices. We want to program what we want to record, when we want to, and watch when we want to. Without some hand in our wallet every month, month in and month out, with a completely unnecessary subscription fee to make the device work.
    Give us a digital VCR, nothing more and nothing less.
