    I am trying to watch a moive on the DirecTv website. I have updated my DirecTv player. Everytime a moive starts to load the circle in the center fills up to 85% and then nothing. Is this a DirecTv problem, a computer problem or a provider problem?

    100% of the time, it has to do with your network set up (firewall, Anti virus, etc)

    Do anyone suppose that HDCP or similar DRM measures may be an issue? I recall that content protection was a vexing problem with later versions of DIRECTV2PC.

    I wanted to register and reply, as I have found why it was loading to 85% and not working for ME. And I know how frustrating it is to get replies like "Nope" and 100% of the time, it has to do with your network set up (firewall, Anti virus, etc) and leave feeling like no one put in any effort to help.

    For me, I'm using Windows 8, browser: Chrome. And I found it would load to 85% then my browser was blocking the plug-in. Just simply right clicked and chose "always allow" from directv.com and wallah! Fixed.

    So no, 100% of the time it does not have to do with your network set up. And in the future, please do more research before giving such definitive [inaccurate] responses.
