Enhanced On Demand Features: DIRECTV

If you are a DIRECTV customer, you will have access to enhanced On Demand features. Ray makes it easy to browse On Demand shows and movies by categories and by network and simply play it onto your TV.


Browse Programs by Category & Genre
Browse all of the Latest Releases or even just the Movies, TV Shows, or Family programs. Feeling like something more specific? Browse by genre to easily find an Action, Animated, Comedy, Documentary, Drama, Horror, Mystery, Romance, Sci Fi, or even Western program. Every genre can also be filtered to show just the Movies, just the TV Shows, or both.

Once you're in the On Demand app, swipe left or right to access the categories and genres, just like the TV app.


Browse Programs by Network 
You can easily find what you’re looking for using the Networks section of Ray’s On Demand app.

Just swipe right when you open the app and you’ll get an alphabetical list of every network that offers on demand programs through your TV provider. Find the network you want, select it, and you’ll get a list of all of that network’s programs.

Watch Programs

Once you find something you want to watch, just select the “Watch” button and Ray will tell your TV provider to download the requested program to your DIRECTV receiver.

If there is a price, tap on the price to start downloading the program. You have not yet made the purchase and will only be charged when you watch the downloaded program.
The “Watch" or price button will switch to an animated “Loading” icon and Ray will track the download of your program. You should see a confirmation that the program has been set to record.<
To watch the program, Tap on the icon in the top left corner to enter the rental list and navigate to the program using the virtual remote.

If you bought a rental program, you have not been charged yet and will have to confirm the purchase in the rental list.
