6 Things Cable Companies Need To Do To Justify Their Prices
Make On Demand Less Random And ScatterbrainedOnce in a blue moon, my DVR will screw up and inexplicably forget to tape one of my shows. Other times, I will have to forcibly cancel the tape on something I normally watch if thereís a special event in primetime that takes up one of my three slots. It would be really awesome if I could simply go into On Demand the next day and manually select the show I missed, but unfortunately, trying to find a specific show through On Demand involves a lot of prayer and luck.
Some networks put certain shows on the following day. Other networks wait two days or three days. Certain shows never even go on at all. Why? I couldnít tell you. If itís an issue of advertisements, just insert commercials that canít be fast forwarded. If my options are sitting through normal commercial breaks or watching the show on my computer, I will always suck it up and sit through the damn commercials, but thanks to the stupid complexities and seeming randomness of On Demand, most of the time I donít even bother checking. Someday, youíll be able to go into On Demand and choose any new program that broadcast on a major network within the last week, and it will be glorious.
