3 Ways To Catch Your Favorite Programs When You Miss Them

It is so hard to find the time to squeeze in TV watching. That really complicates things when you pay for cable TV every month, and you are missing everything. However, if you take just a few minutes of time each day, you can manage to catch your favorite programs later and watch them all. Here are three ways that you can do just that. 

1. The DVR

A digital video recorder, or DVR, is a device that is connected to your cable TV hookups and your TV. It allows you to record any show on any channel at any time and play them back for you whenever you want. Even if you do not have time to watch any of the shows until a month from now, that is okay. The DVR will save them indefinitely because of its internal memory storage. However, most DVRs do have a limited capacity of "memory," so you should probably watch just enough of your recorded shows to keep that memory storage open for shows you tape every week. Most internet service providers now offer DVR rental when you sign up for their services. 

2. The VHS/DVD Combo Player and Recorder

If you want to go "old school," or if you just really want to keep everything you watch, you can use a VHS/DVD combo player and recorder. This device allows you to record on either old VHS blank tapes or DVDs. If you get an extra device that allows you to transfer and convert all VHS tapes into DVDs, then you have an extra option for converting everything you record into DVD format. This option is typically used by older generations, or by people who want to make copies of all of their favorite programs to watch again and again. 

3. Streaming Services

If you would prefer to have the best of both worlds (i.e., the convenience of a DVR combined with the availability of repeated viewings of your shows the day after the shows first air), you can get some of the most popular streaming services. By themselves, these options will cost you extra on top of your cable bill every month. However, most cable companies will hook you up for free, and the monthly charge for each streaming service offered is absorbed into your monthly cable bill. A lot of people choose both the DVR and the streaming services because there are many original series shows that are only found exclusively on streaming service lines.

Sometimes a quick connection means the difference between getting work for the day and going hungry, which is why I always keep tabs on my Internet service.
