who needs this when you have hulu?
Hulu mostly has mainstream episodic programming. A DVR comes in handy if I want to watch my local news, an awards show, any sports
, or a movie on Turner Classic Movies that hasn't been released on DVD.
Also, Hulu offers some shows only for a finite amount of time. I often will record an entire season of a program and watch it only if the show doesn't end up sucking or getting canceled.
