The "watch immediately" On-Demand stuff from Dish (also appearing on channel 1/501 in the EPG) are downloaded via satellite during the overnight when the receiver is in standby.
Other "on demand" programs are available through Dish Online and those download via your broadband connection.
Sometimes the same movies are available via both methods, while others are exclusive to one method or the other.

It can take a bit for a receiver to catch-up and get the available EPG-VOD. I honestly cannot remember how long it took the last time I got a new receiver... but I know it took at least a few days... maybe a week before it was showing as much as my other receivers.

During night hours, FVOD [Forward/Forced (?) VOD] could provide 6+ movies if not interrupted ...
Using that as a gauge, then under perfect circumstances it would take a 622 a couple of days to "fully" populate... while receivers like the 922 could take 4-5 days.
I have about a dozen movies on my 622 (last time I checked) but over 2 dozen on my 922.
Then if you factor in possible interruptions OR if you are staying up late instead of leaving the receiver in standby... and it could easily take a week or more to get all that is available.

Good TV (Cable). Better TV (Dish Network). DirecTV.
