    Just starting to get intertested in content that is available on demand, and have several simple questions:

    1. Is the VOD download through the satellite link, or through the internet connection?

    2. When I select a program such as Weeds, not all of the downloadable content is in HD. Since the original broadcast was in HD, why is some content only available in SD?

    3. What determines the expiration date of a downloaded program?

    Thanks!
    Jerry

    1) Nearly all are downloaded via your internet connection

    2) Its up to the content providers

    3) Same as 2

    Thanks for your responses. Regarding #2, it seems strange that within a particular series (like Weeds), some are HD and some aren't. I would think it would be consistent.

    It's strange, but not all that unusual. It's up to Showtime to decide what is and isn't offered.
