    I have my 722 connected to the ethernet and not the phone line.

    Are there free videos than can be downloaded and watched?

    If yes, describe the process.

    There are some free selections in the Dish Online section. I forget the exact menu combination to get there... but I *think* pressing DVR once, then selecting the option for "Dish Online" then looking either at movies or TV shows you can sort by "free" and see what is available for free.

    Right, hit DVR once, then select DishOnline (5), then go to Dish Theater (3) and sort by free. I have over 25 free HD movies right now.

    Alternatively for TV shows, hit DVR once, then select DishOnine (5), then go to TV Entertainment (4), then sort by free. I have more than 1100 Free events available, some HD some not.

    Do you have to be connected via ethernet to get the free stuff?

    Yes, this is all accessed via DishOnline so you need to be connected to the internet.

    I'll be darned I never really paid much attention to this, just looked it up and there are a lot of movies and even some good ones. The count claims 2793 in the library but I am guessing that includes paid and free. Edit, looks like 27 free movies such as The Illusionist and Shenandoah.

    I just downloaded "Out of Time" but I don't know if it's good since I haven't watched it yet.

    Thanks, I'm not there yet.
    Is it really worth being connected via internet vs. the telephone line?

    VOD Only works over the Internet. Phone line does no good for VOD

    I don't think that is correct and I wouldn't pay VOD prices to watch a movie anyway.

    DishOnline content only works over the Internet. You can get VOD on channel 501 that is delivered via sat and is already downloaded to your receiver.

    Good stuff, but how do you delete a Dish Online movie after you've watched it? Delete is grayed out for me????

    It will expire and go away on its own.
