    Sony Movie Channel On Demand is available for PCs. DirecTV HD Pack customers can get it free.

    I created a Sony account but I don't think you have to do it as it asks for your DirecTV account information when you try to play a movie.

    It would not run on my iPad (didn't give me an error message, just a blank screen) but ran on my PC.

    Worked well on my PC. But on my Android phone, I couldn't get the login screen to format properly, so I couldn't enter my DIRECTV info.

    Yeah. Doesn't look like they took mobile into account. Maybe apps sometime.

    On my Mac using both Safari and Firefox, it just kept asking me to authenticate with my Directv login. Login was correct, but it just looped back around and asked again and again... I'll go try it on the Windows box.


    edit 1 ... yep, worked fine on FireFox on the Windows box. picture quality in full screen wasn't too bad, but it really sucked up the CPU cycles.

    edit 2 ... chrome/mac worked

    It won't run on my desktop with the 64k bit version of Windows 7, but works fine on my laptop using Windows XP. I've emailed both Sony Movie Channel and DirecTV. They answered me from Sony were just a little bit interested.
    Folks at Directv have been working with me, but haven't come up with a solution yet.

    Does your desktop qualify for DIRECTV2PC?

    My receiver is an HR21 +, but I haven't used the feature.

    FYI...I wasn't asked to log in at all. I clicked on Radio Flyer and it played fine after I entered a birth date.

    Does it give you more selections if you log in with your DTV account?
