U.S. soldiers stationed in Japan getting a monster time-shifting DVR

Thanko releases new and improved portable multimedia player

We feel for soldiers stationed abroad. It’s hard enough to watch Desperate Housewives without the Misses, but it also comes on at a weird time ’cause of the time difference. Allied Telesis Capital is helping our soldiers with a gigantic time-shifting device that will broadcast U.S. television programs at the right time on the right day kind of like a super TiVo.

Exact details aren’t available – probably classified super-top secret – but the system shifts 33 TV stations nine hours so it has to be loaded with data storage. Currently, the system is only in place at the Yokota Air Base in Japan, but hopefully, an even bigger, super-duper time shifting device will one day provide all of our soldiers with metabolism-killing American TV programing.
