I couldn’t imagine watching television now without a DVR! Back in the day, you actually had to watch the show when it aired, later I could record it to VHS, now I can even pause live TV. People sometimes ask “Don’t you love that commercial?” and I have to tell them I hardly ever see a commercial. Also, I’ve been asked what day a certain show airs and I have no idea, since my recorder just records them and I don’t have to remember. TIVO Digital Video Recorder was released on March 31, 1999 and I went to Circuit City and bought one soon after. I used it for years but Comcast came out with DVRs that had more advanced features so instead of purchasing new TIVOs I just use theirs now.
