What is the difference between ordering a title and recording it?



  • When you order a DIRECTV CINEMA™ movie, you're choosing to pay for it immediately. The title will be available for you to watch at the next start time.
  • The “Record” option allows you to set up a list of titles you’d like to view before you're ready to watch them. You won't be charged until you actually watch the movies.
