Can I watch On Demand movies and shows on my computer?

With DIRECTV, you can watch hit movies and shows on your computer – all you need is your user ID & password and an internet connection.


Select Movies or TV Shows in the main navigation bar (Or select Watch DIRECTV to reveal the entertainment menu).



You can filter your entertainment by how you want to watch. Select Watch Online to see the movies or TV shows available to watch online.



Once you’ve found the title you want to watch, select Watch. if you selected a TV series, click Watch Episodes and make your selection.



Click Watch on Computer. You’ll be prompted to sign in with your online account if you haven’t already done so.

If the Watch on Computer button includes a price, that means your selected movie requires a purchase. Just complete the order on the following screen to start watching.


If you see an Activate Now or Upgrade button instead of Watch on Computer, that means the movie or show your selected is from a network you’re not subscribed to. Just click the button to activate the network. Activation takes just a few minutes. Once activation is complete, your movie or show will be available for viewing. The network will now also be available on your TV, and its movies and shows will be available on all your devices, including your computer, tablet, and cell phone.


Looking for a specific movie or show? Try the Search field at the top of the page.

Note: Not all titles are available for online streaming, so you may not always see the Watch Now button or the Watch Online link.
