Technology can be a beautiful thing, From VCR video tapes to instant streaming capabilities we have come a long way in such a short time period. DVR has its own special place among these technological advances. It’s brought forth a freedom to record television shows on the fly, whether at work or out on a date with your girlfriend. But unfortunately like many other technologies in a world filled with technological advances it’s over stayed its welcome and here are a few reasons why.
This amazing instant streaming technology wasn’t always as easy as a click or push of a button like it is today. There existed a time period where you had to request what movies or television shows you wanted to watch and wait for a few days to get them in the mail. Now with NetFlix connected to most devices in your home it very much out dates prior DVR needs. With a membership of ten dollars which is the same price it costs in fees to your local cable provider for a DVR, you not only get instant streaming of many peoples favorite movies and T.V. show programming, but also the ability to get DVDs which are not included in NetFlix’s instant streaming cache.
With RedBox seemingly at every corner whether it be MCdonalds, or the local gas station it’s as easy as choosing what you would like to watch and swiping a debt card. With many but not all of the new release movies RedBox is worth all 99 penny’s invested in an overnight rental. Not to mention the fact that you can now even rent video games through RedBox.
The internet has been innovative in almost every facet of technology and television is no exception. Most television shows have their own website and a good majority stream the latest programs somewhere on the website, making it extremely easy to enjoy the latest episode you may have missed. YouTube is another innovative piece of technology and many shows, documentaries and movies can be enjoyed straight off of YouTube. There are many different websites one can enjoy a plethora of viewing material, plus most modern laptops come with built in HDMI outputs making it easy to watch off of your L.C.D. television.
