DirecTV On-Demand

DirecTV plans to launch its high-speed video-on-demand (VOD) service sometime next spring, which will give customers access to a large library of TV shows and movies anytime they want. Customers will use a high-speed data connection to download on-demand programming from the Internet to watch on their TVs. At first, HD programming won't be available, but the system is capable and will most likely include it late in 2007. Sky Report

DirecTV probably has one of the better video offerings out there today for multifamily, but they still need to roll out VOD to keep up with the cable companies' offerings. Be careful, though - this system completely changes DirecTV's approach. There are significant advantages to offering satellite video to your residents, but you need to make sure you have someone on your team who understands these future systems and can get them properly deployed at your community.
