    I have ordered the last two UFC fights in HD. We usually have people over and split the costs. I have never ordered a PPV movie.

    Got a 3 free movie coupon. So for the first time, I ordered a movie. They did not credit me for 60 days. I spent 30min on the phone until they decided to give me $5.99 a month for 3 months to make up for an inability to get the credit to stick.
    I will not be using the credits for any further PPV.

    Hmmmm, $6 for one movie for 24 hours or $9 for all the movies I can watch in a month via disk or streaming from Netflix? Guess which way I voted!

    P.S. In fairness, it's really $11 per month so I can get BluRay.

    Fear not, none of it is "real." even the "real" footage they used in the supposedly not reenacted scenes were just done with different actors. Even the story isn't based on any actual case files as the promos lead you to believe. Now if you want to be really scared, go for Paranormal Activty. Another faked realistic film that will keep you awake at night!

    I normally don't watch PPV, but have on occasion and I have watched a couple in the past 90 days.

    I think the price is a little high, but what I really don't like is the 24 hour rule. With kids in the house, there sometimes isn't enough time to finish the whole thing in 24 hours.

    We actually just ordered our second movie in the last couple years or so the other day. It's a very rare occasion that we use the PPV options from Directv. We're a Netflix household the vast majority of the time.

    I think its been about two years since I ordered a PPV and probably because it was an anniversary gift. And as reported before, the credit wasn't easy to get as promised.

    But as polls usually have someone somewhere wanting this info, the reason why not is because I don't mind driving 2 miles to the store, getting the Blu Ray copy and having a few days to view it and view all the other stuff like directors cuts and deleted scenes too. Much more value.

    The last PPV movie I ordered from DirecTV was about 5 years ago when they offered an Arnold Schwartzenegger movie "Colateral Damage" for $0.99!!

    I still have the VCR of the movie when they let you tape 'em and keep 'em forever. $4.99 for a 24 hour "rental" of a movie? That's why Blockbuster is going out of business!! If there was a film I REALLY wanted to watch, I'd pick up the DVD from the Red Box thing at my grocery store which only costs ONE DOLLAR for a 24 hour rental!
