"Stream ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC & more. Never run out of DVR storage space. 6 accounts, 1 price. $35/month. Cancel anytime." Is it just me or does "DVR" sound incredibly antiquated? DVR was always a hack to get around the real-time broadcast schedule. That said, I'm definitely interested in this as someone who hasn't had cable/satellite TV since I moved out of my parent's house.
Ryan Marr@ryanmarr · Product Manager,
@rrhoover Agree re:DVR. Do I need to schedule a recording? Seems nuts.
Jeff Fedor@jfedor
@rrhoover could've been worse. They could've said "tape as many shows as you want"
Jimmy Douglas@jimmydouglas · Tesla
@rrhoover DVR antiquated? Yes, but it's something that the average consumer understands.
Ryan HooverPro@rrhoover · Founder, Product Hunt
@jimmydouglas true. Same reason why Apple calls it a "Watch". 😬
David@miscalzoncillos · UX Designer at Telefónica I+D
@rrhoover DVR is a solution to can save contents without infringing the distribution rights agreement... because the "live" and "VOD" have a different distribution rights. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I love this idea! Sadly, I'm sure it won't be available in Canada!
Paul Hart@roamlocally · Oxygen Consumer
@arotheram same for Australia... 😕🤘🤔
Maury Rubin@maury_rubin · Biz analyst @ Corporate Knights

@arotheram Just wait a decade like we did for Spotify.

@arotheram I am hoping that they roll it out up here the same time they do Google FI ;)
Andrew@arotheram · Cofounder, MenuEssense
@zedsq it's FI dead?

@nivo0o0 @phillyd Amazing! A billion hours watched per day, plus cable TV and DVR. That's some scary competition.
Chintamani Chintadripettai@kewlking · chief soul-searcher,
@nivo0o0 @phillyd AWESOME! What is the rollout timeline?
Ryan Jenkins@ryanthejenks · Product Manager, Degreed
@nivo0o0 @phillyd No Food Network. :(
Nifemi Oluyemi@nifeoluyemi · Creator WorkBag, IvanaSketch
@nivo0o0 @phillyd will this come with as a hardware or we just continue streaming the same way as live videos ?

Too bad nobody loves the feeling of cancelling Comcast. Oh, wait!
