save streaming video data for later viewing?

I have limited bandwidth in my apartment and no cable TV service. I was wondering if it is possible to write a script that would download the video data from my favorite TV shows (legally... many networks post their videos online for free) while I sleep, so that later I can watch them on my TV without sacrificing any bandwidth during the day.

Any one have any ideas?
