I don't understand your perspective. If I set up a future recording for a movie in the 100s and it doesn't appear in my playlist until that future date I consider that PPV not VOD.
It's not perspective, it's how it actually works.
Of the 400 shows I am talking about, only a few of the top ones are also on a ppv linear channel.
All the rest of the programs you can not set a recording for on any linear channel. It will record off of a sat channel that you can not access and will never see. DirecTV has said that the TiVo can not record any of those programs via sat. So the only way to get those programs is if you have internet connected, because they are also available via Internet.
Another way to put it, DirecTV figured out how to make 400 ppv movies available to download to their dvrs, instead of the maybe 50 or so that are available to be recorded or watched now via linear ppv channels. They did this for those customers that do not have Internet. They have said that this feature is unavailable on the TiVo. This means in order to get more choices than what is on the linear channels, you will have to have your TiVo connected to the Internet.
