Amp Up Your Recording Game to Stay Entertained Post Midseason Finales

Despite the fact that the most wonderful time of the year is approaching, there’s one major downside: our favorite TV shows are beginning to take their midseason breaks. That’s right. No new episodes until January 2015 or later.

So you’re probably wondering, “What am I going to do with my downtime this winter?” After all, TV is essential for R&R breaks after spending lots of time on-the-go during the holiday season.

Luckily, we have the answer to fulfill your TV needs until your favorite shows finally return with new episodes. It’s simple – amp up your recording game with your Hopper DVR.


Love watching reruns of “Mad Men” on AMC? Can’t get enough of those live performances on NBC’s “The Voice?” What about ABC Family’s annual “25 Days of Christmas,” featuring classics like “The Santa Clause” and “Elf?” Well, you can record them all.

The Hopper makes it easy to record your favorite TV shows and movies, and it’s capable of storing more than 2,000 hours of content. Don’t worry about doing the math; you’ll have more than enough space to record shows for you, significant others, kids and all the relatives visiting this holiday.

Once you’ve set your recordings, you can get organized by using your Hopper’s personalized folders feature. With personalized folders, you can categorize your household’s recordings by subject or individual, eliminating the chore of sorting through a lengthy list of everything stored in one place. For example, you can save all of the holiday movies you record for your kids in a ‘Holiday’ folder. Or store all of those episodes of late night television programs like “The Tonight Show” in a ‘Mom and Dad’ folder.



Simply label your folders with a topic or name that will allow you to easily find the recorded programs you want to watch.

There you have it – the key to an endless amount of easily accessible content.
