    For James Bond fans, Directv is going to be releasing Quantum of Solace today in 1080p on their On Demand service. They also are going to have seven of the other bond films available in SD and HD On Demand.

    Pretty awesome in my book, might be the first 1080p On Demand movie I download ;)

    Check your Top Movies folder. You'll probably find Quantum of Solace in 1080p there. I did.

    I wish they would put something out there for free so we can see and sample the 1080p. Even cheap a$& Charlie with Dish did that at launch.

    Peachtree...
    DirecTV gave away a couple (or three) free movies when they first started testing 1080p..

    Outside...
    Would I get any added benefit with those over the regular HD PPV (My Tv doesn't support 1080p/24, just 1080p/60)?

    So can I only get it in 1080p through On Demand because my DVR isn't hooked up to the internet...or is it supported on the regular PPV channels?

    Sadly no, unless your TV can handle the 1080p/24 input you will not be able to watch it in the 1080p version. You might try it though if you have not already as some TVs can still display the /24 content, just not native.

    Unless it is in your Top Movies tab on your Playlist you will need an internet connection hooked up. None of the normal PPV channels have the 1080p content.
