I'm trying to do some research on Directv's VOD more. I understand it's basically playing "catch up" with Comcast and other cable providers who provide a "On Demand" service.
According to what I've read.....
DirecTV subscribers with the company’s high-definition DVR receiver and a high-speed modem connection will be able to access more than 2,000 on-demand movies — many of which will be in high-definition — as well as the cable-network content.
My question is.... I have my HS internet cable modem service through Charter Communications. I then have a wireless Linksys system set up in the house.
Am I going to be able to utilize that (tap into that modem) in order to download/utilize Directv's VOD? And does it only function with the HD DVR? I'm only getting the HD Receiver.
And on a different note.....
They are coming out next Friday to install Directv. When I talked with them I told them that I really didn't want the dish attached to the house (roof, or on the side). This is basically a new house build, and one of my wife's quirks is that she doesn't want them drilling into the structure. Their rep told me that they can install a tripod with which the dish is mounted on. It will be in our backyard, next to the house, with a clear shot of the southeast.
Does anyone have any experience with, or know anymore about this? Thanks.
