And, to further bring it back to PVRs (and our favorite, MythTV)...
While I will watch "event TV" live, it tends to not be staggered,
and I no longer watch most TV live.  I do not care if it is broadcast
at 8pm or 5pm.  Until recently, on the left coast of the US,
many of the cable HD broadcasts of cable networks I get were
from the right coast feed.  Who cares when the networks
broadcast the content?  You should be able to watch the content
you have paid for when you want to watch it.  Should you
choose to watch "60 Minutes" at 7pm, you should be able to,
but I see no reason I should not be able to watch it at 5:21pm
should I choose to.
