I’d like to introduce you DirecTV’s On-Demand Beta. I connected my newly attached DirecTV’s HR21 DVR Receiver (320GB) to my DSL connection and look at what showed up. On-demand goodness just like Xbox Live Video Marketplace. Not as complete and certainly not as pretty an interface but certainly exciting.
Clicking on a selection allows you to ‘queue’ up downloads or purchases and have them download in the background while you watch other things over the satellite.
