Binge watching on the bus with XFINITY X1 DVR

This post is sponsored by XFINITY, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.”

I recently took the Megabus from Nashville to Chicago to visit my daughter. The 9-hour bus ride was surprisingly pleasant and inexpensive so I decided to do this again in the near future.

While bus trips aren’t for everyone ( they might be just the thing for people disgusted by air travel, who are afraid to fly, or who can’t afford either planes, trains or automobile), I like it when someone else drives. Besides, a long bus ride gives me the opportunity to binge watch, which is something I never get to do at home.A long bus ride is the perfect time to catch up on all my favorite shows. I love Modern Family but I didn’t  watch it when it first came on. The bus ride is the perfect time to catch up on the early episodes.

As much as I like books, reading on the bus makes me dizzy. So for me, long bus rides are made for binge watching and sleeping. All I need is a smart device and XFINITY X1 DVR.

What is XFINITY X1 DVR and how do you use it?

The X1 DVR with Cloud Technology functions just like a regular DVR, but includes new features like the ability to stream recordings to mobile devices and computers.

Using X1 DVR from XFINITY you will be able to take the show that you recorded and then stream and download a DVR’d program to any internet connected device. Smartphone, laptop, tablet – all great for using X1 DVR.

With X1 DVR, you can watch your recorded shows from anywhere: at the park, on your porch, on the train ride home, long bus ride – wherever you want! This is yet another feature Google Fiber ( coming to Nashville soon) won’t offer.

With Google Fiber you’re stuck watching your recorded shows at home.

Speaking of home.

Are your kids and husband hogging the TV? It’s the case in my house. When my daughters come home from college, they take over the TV.

No worries – with the Cloud functionality of X1, you can stream every channel live on any device in your home. Don’t waste time waiting for the big screen and watch on your own! You can’t do that with Google Fiber.

The X1 DVR  allows for 500 GB of storage, meaning you’ve got tons of shows and movies at your fingertips after downloading.

XFINITY allows for a change of scenery – once the weather warms up here in Nashville, you know you’re going to be out there enjoying it! And if you decide to hop on the bus, get yourself a fuzzy blanket and a snack for the ride. How better to enjoy your series binge-watch?

XFINITY partnered with bloggers such as me for this program. As part of this program, I received compensation for my time. They did not tell me what to purchase or what to say about any product mentioned in these posts. XFINITY believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words.
