Around The Web

    Grimm’s been one of my primetime favorites along with others like Fringe and CSI: NY. I mainly watch primetime shows and since I work during that time I always get them recorded. It used to be hard for me to pick and choose shows until my coworker at DISH told me about the Hopper DVR. Once I enable the PrimeTime Anytime feature I can get all four major networks recorded with out any timer conflicts. Since then, everyone in the family’s happy and gets what they want. I was able to get rid of the additional DVRs and save some money. This is a great way to enhance TV enjoyment and simplify things.
