I watch alot of my programs on my computer. If you go to tvguide.com you can make a watchlist of every show that you watch. Once you do this the day after the show is broadcast you are able to watch it thru streamline. I too have had it with the high cost of tv. We just left Directv and went back to Dish, Soon as our contract is up I do believe that we are shutting it completely off. Its just to expensive anymore.
