If you watch television at all you probably know that all those commercials add up to a lot of wasted time. The average half-hour television show is actually only twenty-two minutes long and the average hour show is forty-four minutes long. That means that for every hour of television you watch, sixteen minutes of it is time watching commercials. We all have our favorite shows that we watch and if you would like to maximize your television watching experience, I recommend TIVO or a digital video recorder.
Here are the benefits of using a TIVO:
*When you record your show, you can fast forward through the commercials saving a lot of time.
*You can still watch your shows when they originally air. You can start recording your favorite show with your TIVO and wait ten to fifteen minutes. You can then start watching it from the beginning and then skip all the commercials.
*You can records two shows at the same time.
*You can record one show while watching another show.
*You can watch your favorite shows when you it is convenient for you.
*You can pause anything you are watching at any time. This is espcially nice if you have children.
*You can rewind anything you are watching if you miss something. This is espcially nice if you have children.
*You don’t miss your favorite shows when you have something else to do because your TIVO records it for you.
*The TIVO is easy to set-up to record and you can get a season’s pass that will record every episode of your favorite show.
*If you are surfing and find a show that is in progress that you want to see in its entirety, TIVO can search to see if there are other showings of that exact show so you could record it from the beginning.
