Digital TV Age Arrives at Our House

We only get a few channels here for around $13 a month–it is the most basic cable package we can get. EWTN disappeared from the package recently, or so we thought. We recently purchased a VCR/DVD Recorder with a digital tuner so our old TV can show digital programs. In setting it up, I found EWTN is one of the digital channels!

I now record the news on DVD (hi-def news, that is), and I can either watch it while it is recording or watch it afterwards, and skip right past the commercials with the “CM SKIP” button. We can also rewind and watch news stories again, which sometimes helps to reveal a bit of misinformation here and there. Sometimes it just clarifies what was said. This certainly gives us more control over the programs we watch (and, more importantly, the return of EWTN).
