With DIRECTV on DEMAND, you can access a library of shows and movies whenever you want.
While DIRECTV on DEMAND comes with all the DIRECTV subscriptions, some DIRECTV on Demand content requires:
- HD DVR (HR20 or later) or DVR (R22 or later)
- DIRECTV CINEMA® Connection Kit
- Broadband Internet service (750 kbps or higher)
- Network router with an available Ethernet port
Note: If you don't have these things but still want to watch on-demand programming, call DIRECTV at 1-800-531-5000, and someone will assist you. (Note: There is a $5 charge for operator-assisted orders.)
The easiest way to connect to the Internet is wirelessly using the DIRECTV CINEMA Connection Kit. If you are not able to connect wirelessly to your home Internet network, you will need to schedule a professional installation, and for a fee, a technician will come out and connect your receiver to the Internet.
At first, it might seem like a hassle to connect your HD DVR to the Internet, but it's worth it. When you're connected, you can enjoy movies, TV shows, Pandora radio and even YouTube not only on your TV but also streamed to your phone and/or tablet.* And, since all this content and convenience is included as part of your subscription, you might as well take advantage of it and enjoy the benefit.
