What is DIRECTV CINEMA™ Overnight Delivery?


CINEMA Overnight Delivery is a special service that allows customers with an HD DVR not connected to the Internet to get the latest DIRECTV CINEMA movies "sent" to their DVR playlist within 24 hours. Here's how it works:

1. Select a movie on the CINEMA Overnight Delivery page.
2. Click Order. On the following screen, click the Record button. This "sends" the movie to your DVR playlist.
3. Within 24 hours, press the LIST button on your remote and look for your movie in your DVR playlist. (The movie may appear in your playlist in much less than 24 hours.)
4. When you see the movie on your DVR playlist, you're ready to purchase the movie and start watching.

You can purchase the movie instantly by texting from your your cell phone. Just select the movie from your playlist and follow the instructions that appear on your TV screen. You can also purchase the movie from your computer by returning to your selected movie from the CINEMA Overnight Delivery page. Click Order, and on the following screen, click Order Program and confirm your purchase. Once you've completed your purchase, select your movie from your DVR playlist and enjoy the show.  

You can record as many different movies to your DVR playlist as you want—you are not charged for any movie until you've actually purchased the movie. This means you can load up your DVR playlist with a selection of movies you want to watch, and when you're ready to watch one, just purchase and start watching.
