I don’t know if it’s just Bright House cable or not. I’m sure it’s not although I asked my aunt if she had “On Demand” with her Direct TV and she said she doesn’t know what that is.
For those who do not live in Bakersfield, CA and do not have Bright House cable or any other service provider that doesn’t have On Demand, it’s the best thing since the DVR.
In fact you don’t even need to own a DVR for this. Hell, you can just toss out your VCR for that matter.
You just flip to the On Demand channel of choice. Take for example Primetime On Demand. They have all the networks, CBS, FX, NBC, USA just to name a few. You choose the network of the show you want to watch. Then once it has a list of all that networks shows then you scroll to find your show and click Select then find the episode you want to watch and push the B button to play it. It has very very limited commercial interruption too. Like instead of having to wait 2 or 3 minutes you just have to endure a 30 second commercial here and there. That’s it.
It’s not just Primetime on Demand. There is HBO and Showtime on Demand which will allow you to watch all the movies you have missed when they aired and you can pause, rewind and even fast forward. If you missed True Blood then wait until the next day and see it on demand. Or if you were just a half an hour late just click the Select button for the Start Over feature. You can’t forward in that mode, just pause but that’s ok, you don’t want to cheat now do you?
The reason I brought it up is because I missed Merlin last night on NBC but they don’t have last nights episode there. I checked the tv guide website and apparently there was no episode last night so I gotta wait another week lol. That kinda bites but whacha gonna do eh?
