What’s so great about a DVR?

A DVR revolutionizes TV viewing because it lets you watch what you want, when you want. technology, which lies at the heart of DVR services of pay-TV operators across the globe, allows subscribers to pause live TV, record, play back, rewind and fast-forward their TV programmes to view when they choose. A DVR means that subscribers can:

  • Pause their favourite live programme if they need to go and make a cup of tea, and then resume watching from where they left off
  • Rewind a section of the programme if they missed what was being said because, for example, the phone rang during an important scene
  • Fast-forward through sections of the programme that they have already watched
  • Set up the DVR to record every programme in a series in one easy step, using the ‘series link’ button from the menu screen
