Why do I need to keep a phone line connected to my DVR?


In order to use the DIRECTV Plus DVR, it's critical to have a land-based phone line continuously connected to your DIRECTV Plus DVR receiver so you can order pay per view movies and events with your remote control. Without a phone line connection, you may not be able to access your local Regional Sports Network (if it's included in your monthly package), or popular sports subscriptions like NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NBA LEAGUE PASS.

Be assured that this connection will not interfere with the use of your phone.
