Is this correct? She said clearly, and I questioned her, that after the 3 month free premium package had expired AND I canceled it that I could still access programming on demand, just 1 week later.

Can anyone confirm/deny this?

Thanks,
For on demand that is a definite NO. However, if you record something from live TV and keep it on your DVR, you will still be able to play that after you cancel the movie channels. When they offer the free preview weekends I'll record movies to watch later - after the free preview is over. They still play fine.

Perhaps they will reward you next year. They told me for my 20 years of loyalty.

I posted this on another site and had several to agree. Sent email to Directv and they sent back engineers reporting no problems.

I'm coming up on the end of my current 2-year commitment and I'm finding it frustrating that a variety of streaming sources (including NFL.com and ESPN) won't allow you to stream content if you're a DirecTV customer.

Has anyone heard if there are any immediate, impending plans to change this?

If not I'll cut the cord with DirecTV at the end of my contract. TIA.

Have you heard any other rumors about streaming sites?

I've got a bunch of old receivers, is the upgrade to the Genie still free?

This is a new one.

Anyone see/hear this ?

Other channels seem normal.
Haven't tried the US Open but I get weird audio on CBS (local station KVAL) for the shows I do watch, seems the 5 ch shifts perspective fairly regularly. No other channel I use does it.

Last 6 Dodger games coming to ALL of Los Angeles including DirecTV

According to the Los Angeles Times website, Time-Warner Cable has made a deal with local channel KDOC to carry the last six of the remaining late season Dodger games.

A major victory for all Dodger fans' TV coverage this year; a major precedent for OTA Dodger coverage for next season!

"Remember what it was like to hear Vin Scully broadcast the Dodgers on TV? Remember the Dodgers on TV?" - Steve Dilbeck, LA Times

Is anyone else experiencing audio dropouts?
So far, it is happening to me only on channel 11 (CBS) in the Dallas, Texas area.
Audio cuts out every 5 seconds, viewing live TV.

I've seen this complaint elsewhere, but only related to downloaded content and I don't download.

DirecTV HR34-700, HDMI to Yamaha receiver, HDMI to TV.

ClearMyBox command worked a few days ago to fix the Command-Freeze issue.
Tried it again today, but it did not correct the CBS audio dropout issue.
I sent an email to DirecTV this morning.

Just wondering if anyone else has this issue.

Edit: Never mind. I just tuned to CBS and it has an Under Repair screen showing, so the problem is being addressed, apparently.

Did anyone else gave The Soup not record durring the original air time on 9/17?

I know I had free tuners/space.

The only thing I can think of is it was erroneously listed as a repeat.

So did my Comcast CableCARD-equipped TiVo Roamio, weird. Must have been some bad data in the guide info from TMS.

It was listed as a repeat. I had to manually record it. =\
