Thanks for sharing....this is a nice added "bonus" in terms of planning for DVR scheduling...
Very cool. Is it free? I didn't see anything regarding cost in the article.
Thanks for sharing the news, SR!
I wonder if this should also be in DIRECTV On Demand Discussion ...
By the way, here's a trip down memory lane for how DIRECTV provided interactive Olympics coverage in 2006: http://www.dbstalk.com/showthread.php?t=52669
...and also the new NEWS TIPS at the top of the page....
Link posted on home page. Thanks to justlgi for sending the submission.
Yes. it is free.
Thanks for that info Satelliteracer.Here is the press release from DirecTV.
Now I like it... Will make a note about 1008!
Um...hasn't 1008 been around for a while?? I've downloaded programs off it several times for quite a while now...
Is this really just a press release about it? Or was it only available via CE's up until now?
Yes, but there's going to be a lot more content, and hopefully that will include content that you won't see on the broadcast channels.
This is actually an example of where VOD is better than DVR. I don't have good ideas what I should plan to record in advance (except women's beach volley, of course). Glad to know there is VOD that I can download afterwards.
Only good for DIRECTV Plus HD DVR or R22 DVR receivers...too bad nothing for R15. The VOD could be stored in the showcase...
Will it be in HD?
From the article:
"The service will be available through the end of the Olympics in both standard-definition and HD".
Yeah I saw that after I posted, sorry about that.
I tried the HD portion last night. Picture quality was good. Just a bit short. Most of them programns are 6 to 8 minutes, but well edited.
On Demand is OK, but I hope that NBC and/or DirecTV goes one step further and puts the events on live, instead of hours after they take place, like some past Olympics.
Viewing an event, once you know what the results are, is just not like seeing the events live as it happens. Kind of like eating leftovers, aren't as good second time around.
Heh. If Directv cared about that, they would give us an option to turn of the G&# D@%* PIG!!!!
