So Direct TV has had this feature for a long time but now Dish Network does too, Woohoo.
From their website you can now set your home DVR to record from anywhere as long as you have internet access. Great for those with internet enabled phones.
I was wondering what was taking them so long to do this. There has been a few occasions where we forgot to set the DVR to record a show we wanted to watch while we were away. Now we can do it on the road!
The service is free and does not require your DVR to be connected to a phone line. Check it out if you have Dish Network.
