Yeah, that catch up system is pretty great. I stumbled upon it by pushing the pause button accidentally. I know you can go back at least one day. My kids are really into some Korean show about an Alien that was stuck on earth for more than a thousand years, if they are explaining it correctly. Not bad.
Also found a neat trick. You can watch the History Channel and some other channels for free, if you don't mind a little preview box. It seems the channels let you see what's happening live on them, but when you choose to select one, you are given the option to subscribe.
Also one quick question. The option to buy the PVR is either 99 dollars a month or 49 dollars a month. The lady at the office seems to indicate that I qualify for the 49 dollars a month but I'm not sure the difference. Can someone read the onscreen notice for me describing the service? To me she is saying You blah blah blah 49 because blah blah blah, 99 blah blah blah. Thanks.
