    It's worth a shot, but Howard TV is produced and distributed by iN DEMAND. There's basically no chance that they'll share their programming with DirecTV, because they're owned by a bunch of cable companies.

    If D* were to add this, it would be SWEET!! However, I've heard rumors that HowardTV is a joint venture with Comcast. If that's true, I highly doubt another provider outside of Comcast will have this service.

    Edit: Sorry, I missed the above post.

    Right now reruns of Gilligan's Island sound pretty appealing (or anything at all) on DirecTV on Demand (aka VOD)....my 2 HR20's are fired up and ready no play without any Channel 1000. Whoa is me. :lol:

    Anyway to get VOD w/o phone line? We don't have access to land line here and we get our internet via the cable company.

    Starz!/Encore are owned, produced & distributed by Liberty Media -- the new majority share holder of DirecTV. Perhaps the cable companies might lose Starz!/Encore if they don't give us HowardTV. ;)

    Thanks. I thought maybe that was the reason I do not have VOD. I enabled it but no 1000s. (Like most who posted here.) I rebooted once yesterday but nothing changed. Oh well, its hard to comment on something when I don't have it. :scratch:

    I missed the update this weekend. When will there be another opportunity so that VOD can be enabled?

    Help!

    At the earliest, this weekend. At the latest, DirecTV will decide to scrap VOD and never release it. So, sometime between this weekend and never.

    Been about 3 hours since VOD was enabled on my box, but still no CH 1000. Just tried a reboot, and still no CH 1000.

    Friends, chill for a bit.

    This is complicated software, and you're not on a general release.
