Gift Guide: Tivo Premiere 45-HR HD DVR

by .   filed under:

Well if any of you are wondering what to get me this Christmas (and I know you are), this bad boy is on the top of my list.

My friends, I’ve never had a DVR. I don’t know about you, but with a deal like this ($99!), I think it’s about time that we all rise up to throw down the medieval shackles that are cable television schedules!Hold on now, my friends. This isn’t just a DVR, its a TiVo, so it’s smart, easy to use, and it also lets you stream online content from providers like Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon. It does facebook. It does youtube. It records two things at once, while you watch a third thing! It does HD. It recognizes time slot changes. It pauses, rewinds, does instant replay, and slow motion. You can fast forward through commercials. It’s no wonder that those of my friends who own a TiVo speak of it like it’s their best friend- IT IS (or at least in the running). Oh yeah, and you can save a few bucks every month on your cable bill when you return your cable box and ditch the rental fees.

Best. Friend.

My friends, it is time to say “no more!’ to apathetically accepting terrible afternoon programming when we could be watching previosly recorded wonder! It is time that our telivision suggests things to watch when we done watching that previously recorded wonder! It is time, my friends, for a satifying “bloop” when we confirm that recording! Its time for a TiVo.
