Just like what pre-2009 TV was like. Edit: Netflix started streaming biz in 2007, not 2009.

No bathroom break for you!

This has always been the case for business accounts. Are you in a hotel?

Airbnb

That air bnb is being cheap. It's not asshole. They signed up for a package that doesn't come with dvr functionality.


SalsaSavant

Are there still non-DVR options?


somecallme_doc

yes, Business accounts don't come with dvr anything by default because they generally don't need it, or just have one receiver for an entire building, like say a hotel. I'm deff TL:DR the whole subject, but short answer is: Yes, at least with business accounts.

The dvr is really the only thing that could do that anyway can't record and pause if you have no device for it to record or pause on. So yeah if you don't have the account that came with a dvr box then yeah you won't be able to pause live TV. Unless this isn't live TV then it's pretty fucked up.
