DirecTV's Whole Home DVR Now Available ($3)

By  |  Friday, May 14, 2010 at 1:12 pm

After several months of private testing, followed by an open beta, DirecTV has formally introduced their whole-home DVR service. As a fan of the ‘hub and spoke’ digital distribution model, the MoCA-based solution looks quiet compelling. Of course, DirecTV subscribers would need at least one HD DVR. But each additional room (up to 15!) can be outfitted with a less pricey HD receiver to schedule or view recordings from the primary DVR. Free would be nice, but you really can’t go wrong a low $3 monthly surcharge.

Thanks, Jon!

    You have to pay $100 to upgrade your equipment and dish to SWiM compatable and $50 for installation. You also have to sign on for another 2 years. If you ask they will give you a $100 credit.

    You know the problem I have always seen from Directv is they charge you hundreds of dollars for leased equipment. Working at DISH network I keep on all providers and the tech they are putting out. Up to this point I had been astonished with each tech that came out it was something better, or at least a good attempt at it until this. I record shows, so I can fast forward through the commercials, and apparently you can not fast forward on these, and I looked at a comparison just on base prices, with no sugar coating promotion codes, and for the same package from Direct and DISh I would save 39.00 with DISH and the only thing I would miss is the ability to watch a DVR on all the receivers, and not be able to fast forward through the commercials.
