This has been true since the advent of the DVR (or even the VCR to a lesser extent), unless you are a slave to broadcast schedules. Just get better at avoiding spoilers. It's a better viewing experience to wait until you have the whole season at once rather than mixing one episode of show X and an episode of show Y the next day.
For a usual weekly show, you'd be a few days behind with DVR, so you'd only have spoilers for that episode.
Now, you could have spoilers instantly, all the way to the season finale.
