    Must be alien technology.

    Turn your H25 to channel 1501, and then we'll talk.

    You are confusing scheduling/recording On-Demand content with "viewing" On-Demand content.

    In an earlier post you made it seem like the only way you would have any ability to see HBO On-Demand on your TV would be to have an HRxx receiver. D* was greedy...will cost me $400 to upgrade, yada, yada, yada.

    The only receivers that can't view On-Demand content are SD & older model receivers.

    HBO GO on Roku from Dish was available long before the AMC fiasco.
    IMO Directv should make HBO GO available on ROKU and PS3. If you pay for HBO you should get ALL the HBO benefits of paying for a HBO subscription.

    Disclosure: I own PS3, Roku, and have Directv with HBO. Also have Netflix and Amazon Prime which play thru Roku and PS3.

    My opinion is Directv IS greedy and afraid customers like me will decide their service is no longer worth $$$.

    Again I can't search,see,or record on demand content off an H25.

    Never said anything about Playback from Whole home service.

    And again your point means nothing when I don't have Directv equipment in the rooms in question. So I don't care how great your on demand works for you.

    I wanted to know about RoKu and Directv, thats it!

    Your words above.

    You don't need an HRxx to view On-Demand content, and it can be played on an Hxx receiver.

    Unlike most here on this forum I do not live or die by DTV or Dish. I am a fanboy of neither. My opinions are not clouded by Satellite love. ;)

    He has access to all of the HBO content. Authentication via Roku isn't available for obvious reasons. How difficult he makes it to access the On Demand content is up to him. It's incredibly simple for anyone who chooses to take advantage of it.

    You are not paying for "ALL" of the HBO benefits. You are only paying for the ones that DirecTV and HBO Inc./Time Warner have an agreement for.

    :lol: Yea I know, I bet there are Plenty Directv customers that would welcome Roku option.

    Oh well, I get fired up, when someone always has to try and tell you don't need something cause we have a poor subsitute already.

    Again this thread could have Died at the 3rd post. I had my answer I didn't need ON Demand lesson. Anyone who read the first page would have clearly saw I was fine untill the Directv fans started in.

    Not simple or cheap if the TV does not have a DTV receiver attached. Roku's are cheap, small and easy to connect. Not everyone wants to pay extra $$ EVERY MONTH for an extra DTV recever for every TV they own.

    DTV should support HBO GO on Roku. Period. Only DTV Fanboys would suggest otherwise.

    Again Post 3 I was fine. I didn't need to go into detail about my setup, my question was answered in post 2, And then you guys had to start in with your On Demand excuse of Bull Crap.

    Well doesn't help if their are no receivers in those rooms, and Leasing more H25' or C31, is another waste of $100-$200 for those rooms.

    You guys keep going around the facts and circling back to ondemand.

    Yep, I think we all saw that here first hand today.


    They scared off anyone else who may like the use of Roku in DBS talk!.

    When you start calling names it completely invalidates any point you were trying to make.

    Should Roku have access to HBOGo? Sure, why not. But to ignore the other options (some at low or no cost) that are there is completely ignorant.

    The OP has this "doomsday" view that D* is out to get him and everyone else that has a Roku box. It's one big conspiracy to pry your last pennies from your cold, dead hands. At least when you make a statement stand by it instead of flip flopping & ignoring the entire picture.

    Lighten up.

    I know what the other options are for me.

    I didn't need your imput! I asked a question I got an answer.
    Long before you or your friend chimed in with exactly what I knew you would.

    On demand!

    Sorry doesn't help me.
