I have a Directv Tivo unit. I also have the Starz package. In the Showcase
section, you can activate Starz on Demand. It says it downloads 5 new movies
per week and that they will be in the DirecTv Central Menu and you need to
allow for 10 hours of disk space. My question is whether you can delete any
of the movies with or without watching them?

Any info on how this works is appreciated.

You can delete them without issue. It schedules them during times
nothing else is on so it will not conflict with any existing schedules.

I tried a do-it-yourself version of HBO on demand with my DirecTivo.
I went to the DirecTV and HBO web sites, looked for upcoming movies I
wanted to see, and set them to record. I picked a bad week, though.
Nothing I wanted, and quite a bit of manual effort.
Starz on Demand seems like it should be a really simple thing to implement
for any of the premium channels. There aren't that many new movie on each
month.

Thanks David,

I'm glad you can delete them. When it says it puts them in the DTV Central
Menu instead of the Playlist, the question if you could delete them was a
concern.

Thanks,
Art
