With DIRECTV Whole-Home DVR service, everyone in your family can enjoy their favorite entertainment on their own schedule on any TV in your home, not just the one connected to your HD DVR.
Advanced Receiver Service
Enjoy your recorded shows on any TV.
With Whole-Home DVR service, every TV in your home has access to your HD DVR. So if you want to enjoy a recorded show in the comfort of your bedroom, even though your HD DVR is in the living room, you can do just that.
Remote viewing requires a model C31 or higher Client, H25 HD Receiver(s) or RVU-enabled TV/device in each additional room, a SWiM network and Advanced Receiver Service ($15/mo.).
Start in one room, finish in another.
Say you’re enjoying a recorded movie in the living room, but you want to finish watching it in the comfort of your bed. No problem. Just stop the movie, and once you’re in your bedroom, just go to your DVR playlist and resume watching where you left off.
Manage your DVR playlist from any room.
You can even set your DVR to record a show from any room or delete any recorded show from any room. Whole-Home DVR service lets you manage your DVR from any TV in your home.
