That's what I do. I have news from ABC, NBC and CBS set to record and
only keep 1 recording which will expire when I go to record the next
one. That way if I have the time, I can get through 3 points of view
on the news in about the same amount of time as 1 regular broadcast (I
skip commercials and sports and only watch one weather report). If I
don't have the time that night, I just don't watch it and the program
is expired the next night.
