What is DVR and how does it work?

The tradition of gathering around the TV set for a peak time faded. With the increasingly complex technological demands, technology has evolved around this expectation, and that’s how the digital video recorder appeared.

Now you can postpone watching your favorite show for later once you are done with your work. With digital video recorders (DVRs) it feels like you have a computer that stores content recorded directly from the television content provider.

What is  DVR and how does it work?

DVR is the most wonderful thing to happen to television. The best thing about DVR is that it doesn’t require WIFI  to use the technology. So you don’t have to worry about your Internet getting slow or cutting out in the middle of recording a show.

You can have your recordings ahead of time, or watch another show at the same time. 

Although some cable and satellite providers offer set-top boxes that include DVRs as a premium add-on for customers, there are still stand-alone units offered by some companies.

Watching your favorite show is such a pleasure, but now you can watch it without thinking about the other daily tasks, that need to get done.

It’s a no-brainer to sign up for the service since DVR offers so many time-saving features. Here are what you can do with your DVR:


  • Record your favorite series and watch them at any time.
  • Pause or stop your recording and finish later in case you need to do something else.
  • Now you don’t have to watch all the commercials running at your favorite show time.
  • Record multiple shows at once in case two things you want to watch are playing at the same time.
  • You can have  multiple shows recorded at once in case you want to watch them both and they happen to be at the same time
