    Just switched to dish from dtv and I've been looking to find where I can record shows that I may have missed like I did with dtv. Shows like the Daily Show or Dexter, Weeds etc. Is this available with dish ? I can see the vod guide but the content is very thin and looks like they want to charge $ for shows that were free.

    VOD on both SAT services pretty much sucks. In this case, Dish's suck worse than DirecTV's! :)

    Satellite service simply does not yield itself to VOD very well.

    The delivery mechanism is not conducive to great numbers of streaming downloads for individual subs.

    I have always had my dvr receiver hooked up to high speed internet so everything downloaded quickly enough. Dtv had for example the entire previous season of Nurse Jackie available to record. Really found that to be a great feature since I don't always pick up on a series that I enjoy in the first year for it.
