HOW TO: Record an episode of The Daily Show to watch on your holiday vacation or road trip

Streaming media is great, until you try to watch the latest blockbuster in a plane, train or automobile! PlayLater is here to ensure you have something to watch on your trek over the river and through the woods (to Grandmothers house) this holiday season. It’s super easy and free for the first 14 days. Let’s take a look!

NOTE You’ll need to install the latest version of PlayLater to your PC. Then it’s just three simple steps:

STEP ONE: Open PlayLater and click on the channel you want. We want to catch last night’s “Daily Show with John Stewart”, so we’ll click on Comedy Central.

STEP TWO: Select the episode you want to record. Check the Air Date to find the latest (you can also browse or search for the episode you want). Click the Record Now button and leave your PC on for the next 30 min.

Viola! Your selection will be waiting for you under “My Recordings” so you can “PlayLater” with no Internet access required.
 

STEP THREE: Click play. Watch your prize and pat yourself on the back for being prepared!

Well, this will make your holiday travels a bit more enjoyable. Why not load up the hard drive with your favorite clips, TV shows, and movies? You’ll need something to do during your layover in Chicago.

TIP: Be sure to record a couple of things for the kids while you are at it, they get bored so easily : )

It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 to record it now, and PlayLater. What will you record next?
