I finally caught up with everything back in January and since then not a lot has been recorded. I turned to Netflix and binge watched a few series. Once the Olympics are over and all the networks start airing new episodes I'm sure I'll quickly start falling behind again.

My To Do List is pretty light this week (7 hours to record the rest of the week), but cranks back up next week with 28 hours to record. There are several shows starting up next week: Amazing Race, Survivor, Hannibal, The Red Road, The Americans, and Vikings.

Even after I gave up on about 5 shows over the holidays (due to the backlog) I am still falling behind and even with the Olympics I am not not making much headway on my backlog. Strangely, it is the sitcoms that are backing up. I am keeping up with the hour long shows.

Sorry for the old bump, but I didn't think it needed a new thread.

I don't know if it's all the streaming stuff, I can watch now so easily on my Bolt, (which I do) or just my viewing tastes have changed, but I just looked at my now playing list, and almost everything that is a "Series" has 5 or more episodes that I am behind.

Well actually I do know, it is the streaming stuff. Bosch, Daredevil, 11.22.63, flaked, House of Cards, and with Baseball starting up in 2 weeks, it will only get worse.

Same here. All this new streaming stuff, coupled with an increase in daily activities (pool, darts & bowling), make it impossible to keep up with the shows I record. I also seem to be watching more news lately to see what's going on with the election, which is cutting in to my TV time as well.

I have cut way back on the shows I record and I have been mostly keeping up this season. Like my previous post in the thread where I was backed up with sitcoms, the one show I am backed up on this season is The Grinder, which is the only sitcom I record other than Big Bang Theory.

you would be served best buy lining up the recordings and doing summer showings. when i cut the cord years ago i found i didnt miss hardly anything. most is OTA and with the torrents i catch up with the handful of shows i do like but i dont know how anyone has time to watch anything anymore. i dont have kids and tons of activities and even i could not keep up with everything i may be interested in. i intentionally do not read about any new shows coming up in the next season so therefore i dont miss them.

it works

You literally don't know what you're missing!

I'm finding skip mode has really sped up watching. You wouldn't think so but it adds up.

I've been looking at the various OTT services and they have most of the shows I watch. It's making me seriously rethink paying over $100/mo for cable. Especially since I don't seem to watch most of the crap I record anyway.

I keep saying if it wasn't for live sports, I'd cut the cord, but then I think about the shows I watch and how many services I'd have to buy to not lose access to any of them, and it winds up around the same.

I already pay for Amazon Prime for the shipping, so that's just a bonus. I pay for Netflix and Hulu for the original programming. Those are total <$20/mo. The video portion of my cable bill is $125. Even if I did HBO Now and added Showtime and Starz to Amazon that would only be another $33/mo. That's still only about $50/mo compared to $125. Even if I threw in PS Vue for another $45 I'd still be under what I'm paying now.

For me, the one part that would wind up being expensive, once it get here, is the team sports stuff. I'm betting if say the Yankees offered a package where I could stream games, it would probably cost some pretty serious $$$. Plus in my case, where I can't get anything OTA without some sort of minimum cable sub, it would start to add up.

Since you said under $20, you're getting forced commercials (Hulu), and does PS Vue let you skip commercials (plus, it's only a month of cloud DVR IIRC).

It's $11/mo for Hulu and $8/mo for Netflix. That's where I got $20. I pay for the commercial free Hulu.

PSVue has a DVR that allows you to store recordings for 28 days and allows you to FF past commercials. They also have integration with their VOD service, so if you miss recording an episode it will offer it via VOD kind of like TiVo's OnePass. Except their VOD does have forced commercials.

This thread is still going wow!

I'm caught up on EVERYTHING! That's what getting sick for a month will do for you.

So who missed me? Where's my shoe thread?

So the only thing I'm currently watching that's done is SOA I'm right at the start of Season 6. I had stopped watching it at the end of Season 4 so I'm making progress!

I just signed up for Netflix thinking I wouldn't last beyond the free trial, but alas, I'm hooked. I love it and use it a lot. It's not going anywhere. What does Hulu get you that Netflix doesn't?

Hulu is co-owned by ABC, NBC, and FOX so it's primarily geared toward TV shows. You can watch current episodes of most shows on those networks. Plus a couple of new original shows and whatever movies they have licenses for.

You can get a monthly subscription for $7.99 but you'll have to watch commercials. You can upgrade to the commercial-free version for $11.99/month.

I could never go back to watching commercials after owning a Tivo Roamio with skipmode.

Okay so I lied. I didn't realize TVD and Originals started back on Friday and I must have missed another FOTB. 😁
