DVR Users Watch More TV, Just Not Live TV


It’s somewhat humerous that it’s taken until 2010 for reports like this to finally be published by Nielsen. For years show ratings have been hurt by unaccounted DVR users. This isn’t the first report we’ve seen implying these numbers this year, but it’s a good sign that they’re continuing to show what we already know–using a DVR lets you watch […]

Just like then, I’m not entirely convinced that all (or even most) of these are due to Internet content, but more the fact that we’re in a recession, while Cable Companies just keep upping their already outrageous prices. This sounds so familiar to when Record […]
