    Good luck finding a customer with no HR's on their account who would have to pay for an upgrade to one. :rolleyes:

    That was the answer. You don't need access through the Roku because you already have access via On Demand.

    Again with the flip flopping...first you said customers with H21/22/23/24/25 receivers couldn't get On-Demand. Then after I correctly said that wasn't the case, you change it to "No HR's"

    Someone please close this thread because all the changing & flip flopping is making me dizzy...

    Or let me run right out and grab a C31 for $99 that only streams You tube and Pandora and add a $6 fee, Because again Directv is Greedy

    ...and? What exactly is your point? You asked a question and you received an answer. You complained about not having access through a Roku and you were given information about all of the same content that you already have access to. The Roku is not needed for DirecTV customers. Not all service providers offer all of the HBO content through On Demand. I'm not aware of any others that do actually. Why would DirecTV send you elsewhere to get that content when they themselves can provide it to you?

    You can schedule On-Demand recordings from the D* website, iPhone/iPad apps...

    You said that I was "blindly defending"...maybe you shouldn't be so blindly accusing?

    And they can't!!! At all , they can view a HD DVR's List if recordings, so if you happend to set an ON DEMAND on your HD DVR then your H reciver can watch it..

    Yea, I did , HBO says they do Roku .


    Dishnetwork was Giving them away. So why would I question for a second that Directv for any reason wouldn't support Roku.

    Again its fine, I have a buddy who doesn't use HBO GO so he let me use his Dish Network Subscription. And I tied it to his Dish account.;)

    You can't on demand on it , or even see any of the on demand channels or look at any of the on demand content.

    Oh, I don't know...maybe because it was dicussed here at length in a prior thread that was very popular.

    Dish Network was giving them away because they were bleeding customers over their dispute with AMC. It was damage control from a struggling business. AMC was streaming their most popular shows online for Dish Customers. Dish reacted by giving away Roku's to customers who agreed to not jump ship.

    Your point was that you would need an HRxx receiver to have the ability to view On-Demand content.

    As I and someone else stated...that is not the case.

    You are twisting this into a worse case scenario where you have to shell out all this money to get what you want.

    It really isn't as bad as you think...open your eyes, man.

    OK , let me put a computer next to every tv in the house instead then, or maybe an I phone. LOL!:hurah:
    Doesn't do any good without a Directv receiver though now does it.
