You can if you have an ethernet connection to your DirecTV box...rotomike said:Dish lets the ethernet be equal to a phone line in which it should be. They should have that technology by now. DTV says you need a phone line to rent PPV's. Is there any way around it since i dont have a land line? having it hooked to ethernet should be good enough i would think. i dont want to go online to rent movies i want to rent from my remote.
I haven't had a telephone line connected to a receiver since I got HD boxes with ethernet connections... no problems at all.
