"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.

@rrhoover Agree re:DVR. Do I need to schedule a recording? Seems nuts.

@rrhoover could've been worse. They could've said "tape as many shows as you want"

@rrhoover DVR antiquated? Yes, but it's something that the average consumer understands.

@jimmydouglas true. Same reason why Apple calls it a "Watch". 😬

@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!

@arotheram I am hoping that they roll it out up here the same time they do Google FI ;)

@nivo0o0 @phillyd Amazing! A billion hours watched per day, plus cable TV and DVR. That's some scary competition.

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