Pay per view on the Hopper
Posted 25 September 2012 - 03:53 PM
If I go ahead and purchase the movie and then set the Hopper to DVR it and come back to it on the weekend and watch it?
It's my understanding that I can DVR a PPV movie and it will stay on the DVR indefinitely, however, after I start to view it, it is only available for 24 hours after that point before it will disappear. Correct?
I have a couple of free PPV certificates from Dish, and I'd hate to waste them.....

So 24-48 hours after you begin watching them OR maybe 3-4 months from now even if unwatched.
That info should display for you when you order the movie though.

The event will expire 24 hours after playback has begun and the recording will expire 1/30/13 if not viewed.
"Limited Recording" shows up next to the channel name when looking at the Info for the movie and the details on the limitation (which varies from movie to movie) are shown when the "Record This" option is chosen. There is no commitment to buy until the limits are fully disclosed.
The same movie is available as an immediate "on demand" playback with a 48 hour rental for $1 more. It is worth it to look both the VOD channels (501) and the PPV channels to compare prices and limitations.
