The DIRECTV® Whole-Home DVR Service Gives Customers the Power to Share Recorded Programs with up to 15 Televisions

EL SEGUNDO, Calif., June 7, 2010 –– DIRECTV, the world’s most popular video service, is giving customers a virtual HD DVR in any room of the home with the launch of its new DIRECTV® Whole-Home DVR service, which is currently available to DIRECTV customers nationwide. In addition, beginning today, DIRECTV is launching a national print, broadcast and online advertising campaign to coincide with the launch of the
new service.

With the new multi-room service customers have even more control over their television viewing experience by being able to share recorded programs on any TV in the home, begin a program in one room and finish it in another, and access DIRECTV’s DVR technology on non-DVR HD receivers.

The DIRECTV® Whole-Home DVR service eliminates the need for multiple HD DVRs by allowing customers to record and watch their favorite shows in up to 15 rooms in their home with a single HD DVR.

“We’ve created a connected whole-home service that is perfectly attuned to our customers viewing habits and lifestyles, delivering a DVR experience with maximum convenience and control,” said Romulo Pontual, CTO of DIRECTV. “The DIRECTV®Whole-Home DVR service truly enables customers to watch what they want, where they want and when they want it, by simply using a single HD DVR.”

The DIRECTV® Whole-Home DVR Service is available for $3 per month and provides customers with features such as:

  • Access to a single, combined playlist of all of their recorded programs on any connected television in the home
  • DVR controls in every room, including record, delete, pause and rewind functionality
  • Stop a recorded show in one room and continue watching in a different room
