I don't use a DVR because I would rather spend my money on shows I want on DVD instead of 100 channels full of reality shows, 3 hours blocks of the same show, and endless repeats. Most of the movies you can buy on DVD for $5 out of the bargain bin at Walmart.
- TV shows are edited for you when they come out on DVD
They are uncut and commercial and screen clutter free.
- You watch whatever you want as long as it's on OTA live
Only a small percent of my viewing since I have a huge DVD collection.
- You buy TV shows that are years old
I agree with you there. I would rather watch Comedians like The Three Stooges, Jackie Gleason and Art Carnie, Alan Hale and and Bob Denver, and Redd Fox. The funniest comedian on TV today is Craig Ferguson on The Late Late Show.
- You don't mind wasting hours watching mute TV
When I watch sports I do because of all the commercials on today. But instead of buying a Channel Master 7000 DVR I would rather buy more DVDs.
You don't mind the worse screen clutter SD.
Most of the suff I watch OTA is in HD and for free. The DVDs I watch are screen clutter free.
I can see why people feel there is nothing on when you have limited channels and or have to watch Live...
Since I only buy DVDs I have 60 years of programming to choose from. And I don't pay anymore for repeats.
I don't think anybody is trying to diss anyone. Just the belief that what works for one works for everyone (else you're throwing away your money, time and don't have a clue as to what you shouldn't and should watch and when ). As far as the topic at hand input from both sides are valuable and having cut the cord myself presenting it only in one light seems rather simplistic.
By the way this is a discussion in a thread about not having Dish or cable. And I haven't said anybody is throwing thier money way. Its a free country and you can spend money on what you want to.
