[DRM] Annoyed Beyond Recognition

"Whose Line Is It Anyway?" is a bit of an evening tradition for me. We have it set up to record on ABC Family every night, and when I get home from work, we sit down and watch the episodes together. We've been doing that every night for the last eighteen months...except for tonight.

I got home after a long day of patch testing, sat down, and what do I see on the TV?

ABC Family won't let me record 'Whose Line'!
This is a twenty-four hour world. Not everyone works nine to five. It's bad enough that I can't watch episodes I used to record on other machines in my house due to the DRM, but the fact that I can't record at all anymore is frustrating to the point of insanity.

I watch television. I am not a criminal. Quit treating me like one.

How funny - if you were going to DRM anything you would expect the latest episode of a blockbuster, or the 1st showing of a movie - but "whose line is it anyway on ABC family".
