Watching TV Will Never Be the Same
If you aren't using DIRECTV's HD DVR services, you're not fully experiencing HD TV. Subscribing to the DIRECTV HD DVR service allows you to watch your favorite TV shows in stunning, crystal clear, high-definition quality on your schedule. Instead of worrying about being home for your favorite programs or having to choose between the most popular prime time offerings, you can simply use the DVR scheduler to set your HD DVR to record your selections. As a DIRECTV subscriber, you have access to an enormous array of features and options, including state-of-the-art iPad® and computer apps.
Record Your Shows
By adding a digital video recorder to a DIRECTV HD receiver, you’ll have the ability to record up to 400 hours of standard-definition programming or 100 hours of high-definition programming. Even better, you can record two shows at once while watching a third, meaning you never have to miss out again when two of your favorite shows are on at the same time. With DIRECTV's DVR scheduler, you can set up programming subscriptions that automatically record your shows, even if the time or duration of your show changes.
Control Live TV
Along with being able to watch all of your favorite programming on your schedule, a DIRECTV HD DVR will allow you to pause and rewind live programming. Instead of waiting for a commercial or missing parts of what you are watching when the doorbell rings or you receive a phone call, simply pause your DVR and resume watching when you are ready. If you forget to pause, you can rewind up to 90 minutes of live TV.
iPad® and TV apps
In an effort to provide you the most TV watching options possible, the DIRECTV iPad® app has recently been launched. DIRECTV TV apps. allow you to watch movies and TV shows on your iPad®, anywhere in your home. If you want to watch a cooking show in your kitchen or a how-to show in your garage, simply bring your iPad® with you. You can also use your iPad® as a remote control for your DVR and even use the iPad® app as a DVR scheduler to setup and change your DVR recording settings remotely.
Even if you don't have an iPad®, you can still take advantage of being a DIRECTV subscriber by watching TV on your computer from a number of channels and premium networks. DIRECTV CINEMA™ allows you to rent the hottest and most recent movies and watch them on your TV, iPad®, or your computer.
