    Got a TNA wrestling ppv a few months ago. Seems like they only have the standard def ppv for TNA wrestling. Anyone know if theres an HD version of the ppvs? The weekly show is HD and looks great.

    and I vowed NEVER to again after the 24 hour rule - but we got one of the buy one get one coupons and decided to give it a shot with the 1080p VOD. If they keep sending me the coupons, then I'll probably keep doing it - but I wont buy any once the coupons stop.

    Another option should be "I've been a D* customer for over 10 years and have never watched a PPV".

    Haven't ordered a PPV movie in over three years when I last got a coupon.

    Nowadays I use redbox and blockbuster express kiosks.

    No it shouldn't have. He wanted to know if you watched a PPV in the last 90 days...simple Yes or No. Not how long you've been a sub.

    I have never watched any PPV's. We now do the Netflix thing along with their watch instantly(a lot).

    My son's used to do PPV's a few years ago when they had a bunch of buddys over, but none since then

    Not since they started "gotta watch it within 24 hours." Before then, 1 or 2 per month.

    I never ever ordered a PPV since joining D* 4 years ago. Cost is a reason, for the price of 2 PPV movies is > Netflix 1 at a time + internet. Second reason is the 24 hr rule. I might do a college football game if it was in HD for Gameplan.

    I think the last time I watched a PPV movie was 5 or 6 years ago.

    I've done three PPVs in the 12+ years I've been with DirecTV and none since the 24 hour rule went into effect. I have Netflix for Blu-ray and streaming. 30 day rule is of no consequence to me. You'd have to drag me to the theater, so an extra months time between DVD/PPV release and Netflix availability is no BFD.

    I order a PPV movie 1 time every few months, I just ordered one the other night...so Yes. I would say I order a movie from PPV 3-6 times a year.

    However, I do know some people that order PPV almost every weekend....Maybe miss a weekend here and there...but to them its all about the convenience..and being able to pick the movie together as a last minute thing...

    By me, Blockbusters are going out of business, so your options are netflix, buy the dvd, wait till its on premium, or PPV....DirecTV is a lil expensive, but it is very convenient and they have been getting the movies real early on Directv Cinema compared to years ago..witch is nice. And the addition of the 1080p format PPV movies is GREAT.....If I am gonna order a PPV movie, its gonna be 1080p.
