It's simple. Set it to record, and when you watch it, it will basically say "Are you sure you want to watch this? It's going to cost you $3.99." You say yes, and it plays. And once you pay for it, it's in your MyVOD to watch as much as you want just like any other show.

Also, a recorded PPV that you haven't paid for and watched yet will expire after a while and automatically be deleted. Your MyVOD list will show when the PPV will expire and be deleted.

Also, just to clarify, I think, like fredo said, the expiration date only applies to PPVs you have not watched and paid for yet. Once you have paid, I think it's yours to keep (At least it doesn't display an expiration date anymore).
