DirectFlix Coming Soon
A little bird sent us some Direct TV info. Overall, the document we received was pretty boring, but a few slides stood out. Most importantly, we saw the fall in price for set-up DVRs—from $500+ to about $200 or so—and a little thing they're calling DirectFlix. This video-on-demand service will include hundreds of movies and thousands of hours of non-movie content. The new systems will also include a proactive service request system which will allow DirectTV DVRs to inform technicians if it's going on on the fritz and allow them to fix them remotely. Spooky.
