How to Program Universal Remote - Featured

In order to watch DIRECTV On Demand, you must have an HD DVR in your home.1 You also need to have a wireless router and broadband Internet in your home.

You will then need to connect your HD DVR receiver to the Internet, if you haven’t done so already.

After your HD DVR is connected to the Internet, it is easy to access On Demand programming. All you have to do is browse through the channels and find the movie you want to watch. Once you have found the movie you want to see, simply select the title to access the details page. Once you have confirmed your selection, the On Demand program will be available to view and you can start enjoying your selection.

Many networks have their own On Demand channels. You can access these channels by adding 1000 to the network’s regular channel. For instance, if a channel is 136, you may be able to access the On Demand programming by going to channel 1360.

Of course, higher-level DIRECTV packages include a greater number of On Demand titles. These higher-level packages give you the freedom to enjoy more choices in home entertainment.

Parents can also use DIRECTV’s parental control features to block kids from accessing Pay Per View, DIRECTV CINEMA and On Demand programming.

How to Watch Pay Per View Programming

In order to access Pay Per View programming, you should first go to Channel 1100. Once you have accessed channel 1100, you can browse through the movies that are available on Pay Per View.

Once you have chosen the movie you want to watch, click to select it. You will then be prompted to confirm your selection. After you order and confirm your selection, you can start enjoying your programming. Voila! It’s as simple as that.

As the name implies, Pay Per View programming requires that customers pay an additional price for each title they order.2 Customers can use Pay Per View to access Pay Per View events, such as live boxing and UFC coverage.3

Pay Per View also allows customers to order new DIRECTV CINEMA movies.4 These are brand new titles that are not included in the selection of On Demand free titles. With Pay Per View programming, you can catch hot new movies that you may have missed in theaters.
