My Favorite App

This post is dedicated to my favorite "legal" app from the app store. As many of you know I watch about 60 hours of TV a week. It's my other job. The pay isn't good but the payoff is priceless. Ask anybody that's played TV/Movie SceneIt with Brenda and me.
I recently switched to DirecTV after DishNetwork notified us that they were raising their rates. Even after they dropped our local American Idol station. Anyway, I love DirecTV especially the ability to set my DVR from my phone. Here's some pics of the process. If any of you already have DirecTV and you don't have this set up yet, you don't know what you're missing.

Step 1:
Get DirecTV
If you don't already have it, you can comment and I'll give you a
 code that will give you a Benjamin($100) to switch.

Step 2:
Download the DirecTV App from the AppStore
It's free.

Step 3:
Click on App Icon

Step 4:
Search for your Show or Channel

Step 5:
Choose to record The Episode or The Series

There ya go. I use this app several times a week. Especially when Jenny talks about shows she watches.  If she likes a show it has to be good, right?

Don't you hate it when you want to be entertained and they try to sneak in a commercial on you? I hate that!! The biggest culprits are Idol sponsored by Ford & Coke and Biggest Loser sponsored by 24Hour fitness & Subway. They remind me of the Truman show. Give me a break. If I wanted commercials I would watch you live. ::gag:: 

You need to have an internet connection to your DVR. You can either connect it directly or wirelessly. Let me know if you have questions. Enjoy!!

I am finding a cord to hook the DVR to the internet tonight. This is a definite necessity!

I still can't figure out how you got so crazy tech savvy. Like you are a tech engineer or something.

Don't have direct tv, but loved the pics of Jesse on your Iphone. Can't believe how much he's grown!

Man, I wish I had DirectTV. I heard that they are coming out with a similar app for TiVo users, but you have to buy some hardware for your TiVo. The app will let you watch your recorded shows like "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant" on your iPhone
