Hi Vickey,

 

No.  But you can typically view the movie for anywhere between 24-48 hours after ordering.  This information should be presented on the guide pre-order screens.

Re: On Demand recording

Are you purchasing a DVR? Most are locked out from recording most premium, on demand and PPV content. Especially HD content

There were a few that record off component video but none that record from HDMI

And  cable supplied DVR's usually only are allowed to record normal, not on demand, PPV or one time purchased movies., Some copyrights allow only a single playback and then the program is erased.

Re: On Demand recording

I have a DVR now. I've never purchased a PPV movie. I wanted to watch a movie later and don't want to have to pay to watch it more than once. I wanted to be able to watch it on my own time at a later date or be able to turn it off and return to it later,

Try it... you have the best luck with composite (3 rca cables) or component (5 rca cables) than with HDMI
