I did some searching, but can't find an answer.

 

I have a Hopper and I want to download an On Demand free movie. How long do I have before it "disappears" from my hard drive?

I thought most movies indicate this when you are ordering them...  Most should be 30 days until you first start watching them, then 24 hours after you start watching.  Technically it may stay on the hard drive a little longer than that, but you can't watch it any more without re-purchasing.

Most of the free movies have 30 day expirations from what I've seen and that clock starts when you download it I think.

 

Pay movies and shows are different though.

When ordering a Free VOD movie, it will last for 30 days. If you were to order a VOD that cost, you will have 24-48 hours after you have started to watch it before it will expire.

Thanks
