    I apologize if this question has been asked before. Is a phone line connection required for PPV billing, or does an Internet connection suffice? I realize that the TOS requires a phone line -- I am just looking for the technical answer. Thanks in advance.

    Moderator: I just realized that this post should be in "general discussion". I cannot find a way to delete or move it. I'm sure that I don't really need to say this because you already know, but please feel free to move or delete this thread.

    An internet connection will do. The phone line isn't needed if you have internet connected.

    Moved. :)

    Actually, the new Customer Agreement allows for either a phone line or an internet connection.

    A phone line is no longer a requirement so long as you have an internet connection...which you need for On Demand/DIRECTV Cinema anyway. :)

    There's a Customer Agreement joke in there somewhere. :D

    What if you have an Internet connection and when you go to try to order a PPV it says you must have a broadband connection (even though you already have one)?

    What is the exact message that comes up and when/where does it come up? Also, what is your current setup?

    What does the receiver say when you test the internet connection?
