Powerful Program Guide
Simply input your zip or postal code and Beyond TV builds a program guide with TV listings for the US and Canada -- and no costly subscription fees.
Record a single show, first-run episodes, or an entire TV series with the click of a button.
If a higher priority show is being recorded and runs up to five minutes over it will continue recording before moving on to the next recording. So if Lost ends at 8:03 PM and you have a lower priority scheduled recording to begin at 8:00 pm, Beyond TV will continue recording the higher priority recording of Lost before starting the 8:00 PM recording.
