This doesn't exactly fall under the umbrella of shopping, but as an advocate of sharing information, I feel I need to spread the knowledge.
If you have a DVR box, you probably have FREE TV ON DEMAND. This means never having to miss your favorite show! You don't have to set your box to tape anything. All of the major networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, etc.) post the most recent episodes of their shows for free. No commercials. Available to watch anytime.
Check out your DVR menu options and see if you have it. I now watch 2 x as much tv as ever before. Is this a good thing? I don't know but I'm enjoying it!
