Directv has given us alot of Freebies some of which I use and some I don't but the Bottom Line is that you get a ton of Functionality out of this Service versus some of the others and I couldn't live without it. It was proposed over 5 years ago and I thought at the time "What a Cool Feature that would be." and now it is here. So I for one will gladly pay for it because it Frees you up to Watch Anything You Have Recorded Anywhere you have a DVR or Receiver along with being able to perform maintenance functions on all of your DVRs from just one place. It is definitely worth it to me but probably not for everyone.
