Now I can finally watch some programs that I want to watch!
The big news in our house this weekend was the installation of Foxtel IQ (which is kind of equivalent to TIVO I think). We have had Foxtel (cable TV) for years but even though I am the one paying the bill I never really got to watch a lot because the TV with the set top box is in the front living area and my computer is in the back living area.
When the salesman came to door selling it, I said no, we already have normal Foxtel, but then they offered afree upgrade to IQ, plus a box in the back room. I had been thinking about doing both for a while, so it seemed like a great deal. It seemed like an even greater deal when we got two IQ boxes. So for the last couple of days I have been able to watch some foodie programs, some History Channel, and tonight I even watched a movie! Unheard of in my house I can guarantee you. I enjoyed the movie so much that I am recording it when it plays again in the middle of the night!
The main downside is going to be try to ensure that my son does not fill up the memory in the front room with loads of rubbish! I am pretty sure that he has already figured out how to use it much better than I have!
I am loving it so far!
