Tivo - Help for winter fishing withdrawal & a great educational tool

I'm just wondering how many people on here have Tivo? I've had it for about 6 years and I don't know how I'd make it through the long winter here in the Northeast without it! It's also taught me a lot about fishing since I can not only watch WAY more fishing programs than I would be able to otherwise, but I can save really good shows and watch them again before I go on a trip where I can use that knowledge.

There's a lot of fishing shows on very late night and without Tivo I'd never get to see them.

If you don't have it, I highly recommend it. It's not the cheapest service, but well worth the money. It totally blows away any cable TV company-provided service.

I don't have it, and probably won't anytime in the near future. I figure with my busy life, if I don't have time to watch things now when the heck will I have time to watch them later?

I understand your comments about being able to learn much more about certain topics though.

I agree with Mark, Just don't have the time to watch. If I do get time it is usually a spey casting DVD or somthing like that.

It does sound cool though and if I had one I bet I would use it and watch the tube more.

If it is, I'm guessing you're not a gadget guy, though I'm not really either! I just happened to live with a guy maybe 6 years ago that had it and I got addicted. Tivo is a recording service that allows you to pause, rewind, fast forward, slow mo, etc live tv and schedule recordings and now offers the ability to store photos, link with your Yahoo account, search for movie times and buy tickets, look at traffic and weather, and a bunch of other stuff. Some cable networks offer the pause live TV functionality now but Tivo was the first to do it about 7 years ago.

With Tivo's new download service I found a new time to watch fishing shows. I had to travel to Atlanta for business this week and I downloaded a bunch of shows to my laptop and watched them on the plane. So if you're a busy traveler, Tivo could really let you watch the shows that you're always missing.

I'm going to assume that the question from pescaphile was genuine. It's not a matter of whether or not someone is a gadget person; it's a matter of whether or not someone is a television person. Believe it or not, a portion of the population doesn't rely heavily on television programs for entertainment. During certain times of the year (fishing season) I can go for days without turning the television on, and when I do it's only for news and weather.

Ever see those bumper stickers that read "Kill Your TV"? When I was a kid I didn't get it, but there are times now that I completely understand the line of reasoning.
