I see Dish has another 99 cent PPV promotion good through this coming Sunday 9/30. I have never used PPV.
1. Can these movies be recorded to watch later?
2. Do they download to your DVR or do you just watch them live.

There are a couple I would like to watch but unsure how the process works.

1. Yes they can be viewed later.
2. PPV is recorded onto your dvr like any other live program. VOD and BB@Home are downloaded.

Some of the movies have "Limited Recording" ... check the descriptions for details. For example, channel 503 Sherlock Holmes will expire 24 hours after playback begins and can only be stored until 11/11/12.

Details of the restrictions are available as you set the recording ... before you commit.
