About DIRECTV on DEMAND

What is DIRECTV on DEMAND?

DIRECTV on DEMAND offers customers with the DIRECTV Plus HD DVR (HR20 or HR21 model) access to thousands of titles through their set top box. Customers can browse the titles on the set top box by using the guide. Available titles include movies, music, popular television shows, animation, cartoons and more.

Is there an additional charge for the DIRECTV on DEMAND service?

No, it's a free service provided by DIRECTV. However, in addition to the free content, there are PPV movies and other shows available for purchase.

How many titles are in the library?

About 2000 covering all genres including: kids, music, movies, sports & interests.

How soon can I expect content to arrive?

Content delivery depends on your bandwidth speed and the duration of the content. A three minute music video will complete downloading faster than a two hour movie but you can begin watching the content before it completes downloading.

Will the content show up on MyPlaylist or in Showcases?

Content will appear in your MyPlaylist list as it downloads or once it has arrived completely, but you can also watch the content as it is downloading from your Queue.

What will happen to my regular recordings if I'm downloading DIRECTV on DEMAND titles?

DIRECTV on DEMAND titles will not impact your regularly-recorded series links or other satellite broadcast record requests. By using the Ethernet port on the back of the DIRECTV Plus HD DVR, the content enters your box through an alternate channel that does not interfere with your satellite recording.
