Is this likely to change as time goes by or is this the way the PPV works?
Check out all of the movies shown as "Playing Soon".
I'd hope they switch it around so that each of the PPV HD channels has a different movie on them. Four HD PPV channels of "Blades of Glory" seems a bit unnecessary to me...
Looks like a nice list of coming soon stuff. I guess it is too early in the programming for me to be complaining about their only being two movies.
Yes, the multiple showings on different channels with staggered start times might have been a good idea in the days before DVRs were so common but now it seems that they would get more purchases with a wider variety of movie titles at the expense of offering start times every half hour.
No doubt PPV HD will eventually become very similar to SD PPV. Just not 100+ channels of it. At least not for quite a while yet anyway.
I would be ok with a channel having the same movie all day as long as there were different movies on each channel. I would also be ok with them using all of the available space to add more HD PPV channels until more nationals are added
As of today the guide shows the new HD PPVs will have 5-6 different movies spread across them. Instead of one film on four channels.
That's great and hopefully this will spread out even more over the days and weeks to come.
Agree. Would much prefer one HD Movie per HD Channel.
Have never watched a PPV movie "live". The HR20 awaits lots of PPV HD movie choices
I'm new to D* and haven't order a PPV movie yet. Is it true that you can record PPV movies to your DVR and you won't be changed unless you actually watch it?
When is the HD porn channel going live...594 or whatever number it is...
You will see an expiration date in your Playlist. If you do not watch (and pay for) the movie before the expiration date, it will be unavailable to you (even though it is stored on your hard drive).
IIRC, "expired" movies you can watch until it searches for authorized content, usually only 3 minutes at most.
Does the expired date go away after you pay for it or do you only have access to that movie for a limited time?
I could see using a eSATA drive for storing HD movies from PPV instead of buying the DVD (especially if they change it so the recording is tied to your account and not the DVR) but if they expire that really changes things.
The expiration date goes away after you pay for it.
