Does anyone else find the PPV and VOD set up with DirecTV confusing and frustrating?

Like a lot of people, I don't have a super fast internet connection...fast enough for us to browse the web and do what we need to do on our Laptops and i-pad, but a movie download from D* would take about two hours.

So, in what I think is a visually confusing mess, we look for movies that have been downloaded to our hard drive and are instantly accessible....that means four or five offerings at best.

As a result, we don't buy any PPV or VOD movies any more. Is this a case of us really needing to get with the 21st century, or do others find this part of DirecTV as useless and confusing as I do? :)

I really don't care about what's involved technically...to quote Oddball from Kelly's Heroes... "I only ride 'em, I don't know what makes 'em work". :)

I want to be able to go to a PPV or VOD offering and click on it and it plays. I'm not remotely interested in downloading to the hard drive.

I usually have 11 pushed to my dvr at any one time. Just look in the channel guide at channel 125 _9 you may need to be channels i get, if your favorite channels list doesn't have channel 125 on it.). All the ad banners for movies are on your hard drive.

Also, go into the all movies on demand, and choose in theaters, and then select any movie you think you might want to watch someday when its out. Set your vod que to 5 or 10, and then they will automatically push those movies to you when they are released. Kind of like choosing a netflix movie before its even available, and then having it show up when it is. :)
This is very useful info. Thanks. :)
