Why do pay per view movies come out later than home videos?
What are the advantages of ordering pay per view movies? Movie studios release films to the video rental market before making them available to pay per view services. However, the period between the home video release and pay per view release now can be as little as 30 days. And DIRECTV is not just another pay per view provider! Our DIRECT TICKET Pay Per View service offers a great selection of the latest movies well in advance of premium cable and broadcast television networks — as many as 55 different movie and event choices a day. That’s dozens more than you can see on cable or any other satellite service. Also, DIRECT TICKET Pay Per View lets you preview the first five minutes of non-adult movies so you can make an informed “rental” decision.
