The month of October is all about Halloween and horror stories. I love this time of year. I am all about the fall colors, cooler weather, bonfires, and watching scary movies while hiding under the covers. From movies about witches casting spells, evil black cats, to someone being chased through the woods by a man with a chainsaw, I’m all in.
What I am not all in for is when my technology is what has me screaming instead of a scary movie! From home security and communication to entertainment, technology is a big part of our everyday lives.
Do you have a technology horror story? I’ve sure had a few in my day, but what comes to mind first, is my love and history of frustration with the DVR.
It might or might not be hard to believe, but this movie and television geek tends to go a little overboard when scheduling the DVR during this time of year. We’re talking about new and returning series, award shows and movies. This was once a major issue. What’s worse than tripping over a stick while that guy is chasing you through the woods? Finding out that your favorite show came back weeks ago and your DVR was too full to pick it up.
That was before we made the switch to Xfinity X1. The X1 DVR has 500 GB of storage for us to record 50 our favorite programming. That is enough room to record my favorite Halloween shows and movies and my regular favorites without worry of missing anything. I can even record up to five shows while watching another. Plus, its Kids Zone feature collects age-appropriate shows for kids to scroll through. This is great because we don’t have to worry about the kids stumbling on the wrong movie and being frightened this Halloween. Another huge benefit is that I can watch my recordings from anywhere, even while I’m offline, when I download them to my phone or tablet. Once my shows are downloaded to my devices, I can tune in whenever and wherever. This is a feature I use often because it sure makes feeding my movie obsession convenient.
Don’t let your DVR or lack of space be your horror story this Halloween season. Check out Xfinity.
