On Demand Streaming

It is best if you have a internet connection of 2.0 Mbps or faster for best performance. The min. speed you need 750 kbps. If you're not sure how fast your Internet connection is, please check with your Internet service provider, or go to to find out.

How fast you can download and watch VOD depends on your ISP connection. My neighbor/friend has all DirecTV channels including VOD and has gave me a great example of On Demand Streaming. Standard VOD programming can be watched almost instantly after you select to download. HD programming will take longer, 1080p HD programming takes 20-30 minutes for him to download a 1080p movie.

They have about a 6MB download speed which does give them a good size advantage, but I hope it gives you an idea of this works. If you have on the low side a 1MB connection then after selecting to download will be more delay. If it becomes a problem as you watch more and more On Demand Programs, then begin to download programs before you go to sleep, or watch regular TV for 15 minutes or so until the download is complete.

After you pay for On Demand Service or even just a PPV service and record it with your HD-DVR Service, you have 24 hours to watch it before it disappears from your Digital Video Recorder!

New DirecTV Technology!

After you have downloaded a movie or your tv shows on demand, you will soon be able to share that movie with other receivers in your household!

This technology is not mainstream yet, but will sometime this year. You can bet internet download speeds will be faster and file sizes of large HD movies from DirecTV will get smaller and smaller by the end of this year. Soon it will take no time at all to On Demand will become the next big thing, the new IT On Demand.
