    Sorry for a question that has probably been asked a millions times, but seeing as though I now have 5 PPV COUPONS, I was just wondering if PPV movies can be permanently saved on my DVR?

    Permanantly until you watch it. Then 24 hours later...poof.
    Hint: when you watch it, record it to a DVD recorder at the same time.

    No -
    You can record them, and then they are usually limited in how long you can store them - then, once you play them - they can go away in 24 hours.

    Movies on premiums / regular channels aren't under the same restrictions generally.

    Hmm. Well, that's not too bad. As long as I don't have to watch it within a a few days.

    It depends.

    The "Limited duration" ones say when you purchase that they are only good for 24 hours once you start playback, or expire unwatched after a couple of months.

    There are other PPV movies, though, that don't have an expiration. I haven't tried in a while... but you used to be able to keep those even after watching them.

    Daybreakers (a vampire film) is good IMHO. Interesting "cure" for vampirism is explored in the film.
