TiVo employee Michaela from the User Research Group insists the TiVo service is a great way to save time and stay literate! By taking advantage of closed captioning and the TiVo FORWARD button, she speeds through slow, dialogue-heavy parts of programs like the news, opening monologues of talk shows, etc., and still gets all the good stuff. How to do it? Activate closed captioning on your TV, and then press the FORWARD button once. (Bonus Tip: Many TVs activate captions automatically when you press the mute button.) You’ll be able to read the dialogue and finish the program in nearly half the time! When you want to hear something real time, just hit instant replay.
