    DIRECTV just launched NBC On Demand - Channel 1004

    One caveat. Fast Forward is disabled on this channel.

    Enjoy!

    I'm guessing contractual obligations can be a female dog...

    This is great if I actually watched something NBC.

    There was time (80's) when NBC was just about the only network I did watch but saddly it has not been that way for nearly 20 years

    I watch very little on NBC as it is, I certainly won't watch any of their offerings with a crippled DVR.

    Now that is really holding a grudge. (Yet, is it a grudge when it is a very worthy reason?) :D

    Now if the other networks will just follow suit... At least it will be easier to watch missed episodes then.

    Nice to have an option if I miss something. Parks and Rec is about the only show I watch on NBC. DVR isn't completely crippled. Pause, rewind and resume are all available. I will trade FF for the old model (remember NBC was a PPV on demand item a while back). They've gotta make money somehow.

    That's great news. I can live with the commercials if I need to watch a program.
    The commercials will allow "library time".

    How long after a show airs does it take for it to show up for DL?

    Thanks
