The regulars 'round here know that I have occasionally griped about my lack of DVR. I have coveted this for a very long time. Many of my friends have TiVo and rave about it. Sister Kitten says that DVR has revolutionized her TV viewing: "It's great! I've got 30-something episodes of Law and Order that I can watch any time I want!" (Or was it an L&O spinoff? Yo no se).
Anyhoo, a couple of weeks ago, I called Comcast to gripe about my bill. Why was I paying more money every three months when they keep taking channels off my lineup? I have the analog package with the extended basic lineup. No fancy digital, no premium channels.
Well, long story short, I'm getting a new cable package this Thursday. The cable guy's coming to visit. I'm getting a free box, and a two-year deal that will get me digital cable and HBO for a far less expensive price than what I'm paying right now.
And...the best part?
Free DVR with the deal.
I'm so frakkin' excited about this. You have no idea.
It's too bad I won't fully enjoy it immediately...I'm starting another housesitting gig on Friday. HOWEVER, I'm setting up the DVR to record the shows I'm gonna miss while I'm away. Then I can enjoy my shows when I come home!
Dear God, is this what my life has come to?
