"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". ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
@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. ยฏ\_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ
I love this idea! Sadly, I'm sure it won't be available in Canada!

@arotheram agreed. I would absolutely sign up when it comes though....one day ๐Ÿ™
@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 ;)
@zedsq it's FI dead?

@nivo0o0 @phillyd Amazing! A billion hours watched per day, plus cable TV and DVR. That's some scary competition.
@nivo0o0 @phillyd AWESOME! What is the rollout timeline?
@nivo0o0 @phillyd No Food Network. :(
@nivo0o0 @phillyd will this come with as a hardware or we just continue streaming the same way as live videos ?
@ryanthejenks @nivo0o0 @phillydย Here is the full list of major channels, which are missing from the service (from USA Today): Turner channels, including CNN, Cartoon Network and TNT, the Viacom networks, including Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, and Nickelodeon, Scripps (Food Network and Home and Garden) and HBO.
Too bad nobody loves the feeling of cancelling Comcast. Oh, wait!
