When I record a movie from DTV Cinema does it download over the internet or the dish?

If it has a Green arrow, then its satellite and its instant. Otherwise its a download through the internet.

My broadband usage chart can confirm this.:lol:

On average my house uses less then 30 GB per month of our G15 cable internet.

Last month I downloaded every Boardwalk Empire up to date On Directv Cinema . My last months usage was 120 GB :eek2: For us thats alot.

Lucky we have a 250 GB limit. If you has satellite internet, I would be carefull.
