I’m still managing all my TV viewing by way of DVR. I almost never see commercials anymore. I could never sit through them and still follow the show that I’m watching – there are so many commercials. So I’m watching an awful lot more TV than I would be getting without DVR.
This is a pretty good show about Silicon Valley in the startup days of the 1980s. I read about the new season online a few minutes ago, opened my Fios app on iPad, and scheduled the series to start recording on Tuesdays from my iPad. That’s easier than getting it done through the TV menus on FiOS. If you don’t have a DVR, I think you can set yourself a show reminder also using the app.
I mainly use my Fios app to see who’s calling my house when the phone rings and I’m not near the phone. We get very few calls and most of them are junk.
