    Really Tony, within minutes? That's amazing - are you speaking of programs that are 30 mins or less? Anything over an hour takes forever on my end. Heck, I went for a PPV a month ago because I was sent a PPV voucher. I opted to go for the HD feed and pay an extra buck. Next thing I know an hour goes by and still the movie isn't ready to play without constant buffering/freezing.

    I'll still stick up for Roku - that I know is faster and arguably more efficient than D* on demand. I have HBO GO for Roku and I get D* on demand for HBO and I'll take speed over anything in this day and age. I select the show/movie and hit play and it's there without any freezing/buffering.

    If you have any tips to speed up D* on demand HD content downloads, I'm all ears.

    I also watch D* on demand within minutes and that includes 2 hour movies. No issues, never stops...once I start I'm off and running. No pauses, no buffering, no studdering, etc. I'm only at about 14 Mbps down and absolutely no issues.

    I have 12/5 internet speed and can select most any on-demand HD and walk to the refrig to get a beer, come back and watch the entire HD with no pauses whether it's 30 minutes or 1:30.

    And it's not that far to my refrig.

    The catch to watching on demand is download let it sit there for a minute or two and start watching if you have decent HSI because watching while downloading is better than waiting to catch up or at least have enough in the buffer to watch.
