After seeing what cable offered (in Seattle WA) via on-demand I decided to buy the wireless ($80) connection for my Direct TV (in ILL). Very disappointed.
The menu is slow and awkward and the selections available for on demand pretty much suck. None of the prime time network programs are available...mostly *** from CNN, Oxygen, Bravo and the like. You can get pay-per-view, but I don't need on-demand for that. It's pretty much a waste of time.
The on-demand I saw in Seattle (cable) had the ability to download and watch pretty much the same programs that were broadcast live.
