It used to be that if you wanted to catch your favorite television program, whether it was All In The Family, Soap, Young and the Restless, Cheers or Taxi, you had to be at your home sitting in front of the television set to watch it live as it aired. Sure, people could have recorded them on their VCR or Betamax machine but not everybody had access to them or could afford them back then. Unlike now where you can get a DVD or Blu-ray player for an affordable rate, electronics were expensive then.

There's a reason why the most popular shows back then averaged tens of millions of viewers while critically acclaimed shows of today are struggling to stay on the air. More people had to stay at home back then to watch their shows live on their television set. That's no longer the case today. Whether you have to be at work or you're traveling you can now watch your favorite program whenever you want, either by downloading them and watching them on your computer or recording them onto your DVR.

DVRs, or digital video recorders, are a godsend to those who love TV but are always busy when their program is on TV. Digital video recorders allow those that own them to watch their favorite show whenever they want. They no longer have to miss an episode of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia or Louie because they're away from their home.

DVRs were invented for TV lovers on the go who lead busy lifestyles. They're easy to set up too. Just find your favorite shows and program them for a season pass. DVR season passes will record every new episode of any show you want so you never have to worry about missing a recording or an episode. All you have to do is come home to your condo, turn on the TV, turn on the DVR and press play. It really is as simple as that.

Depending on your DVR you can record two shows that are airing at the same time or watch one show live while recording the other. DVRs also allow you to fast forward so you never have to sit through another commercial ever again. If you don't have a DVR and this article is making you want one then go out there and buy one. A DVR might just change your life.
