Hooray, more DRM!
I don't have DirecTV, but my family has been considering doing something digital. Well, one reason to be wary of DirecTV.
DLing movies on the Xbox 360 (which I have never done), have the same 24-hour rule. It's stupid, and costs more than it should anyway.
It just says things you pay for will have the 24-hour rule... you can, most likely, just record shows whenever / whatever as people can now and it won't be erased since you didn't pay for it in the first place. So... if you want to watch Survivor but you're going to be at some Magic The Gathering convention... you can have it record, and come back to it days later and watch it (after your Harry Potter book club meeting)...
I kind of understand why they would do this for purchased items... but its still BS...
they didnt used to have this time limit just whenever it was done playing it got took off the dvr
another DRM!They will start to implement DRM in everything now!
i dont see the point it is always broken at one point or another and the money they use to implement this will mean higher prices for the consumers
