SPECIAL FEATURES OF DIGITAL SATELLITE RECEIVER
Special Features of Digital Satellite Receiver
Impulse Pay Per View (IPPV)
You must connect your phone line to the Digital Satellite Receiver to receive pay per
view (PPV) service offered by DIRECTV. Connecting the phone line permits you to
use the IPPV feature, which allows event purchases without calling a CSR (Customer
Service Representative). If you decide against connecting to your phone line, you
must call the CSR to purchase events, such as pay per view movies*. DIRECTV refers
to such CSR assisted purchases as OPPV (Order ahead pay per view).
When OPPV or subscription authorization changes (e.g., customer cancels the movie
purchases), the Digital Satellite Receiver will reflect that change immediately. The
Digital Satellite Receiver will display a message, identifying the reason for the
authorization status change.
The Digital Satellite Receiver has the ability to allow you to purchase a PPV event
offered by DIRECTV. When the Digital Satellite Receiver is tuned to an IPPV channel,
(video may or may not be displayed, depending upon whether the PPV event has
started) the following message is displayed on the screen.
Purchase available - Press ACTION for purchase information.

Receiver when it is active. The options are the following:
•
•
OFF (default state)
ON
Off state
The Off state disables the timer and clears the timer data fields.

The On state enables the timer to perform several actions once a timer is active. The
Digital Satellite Receiver is turned ON and it is tuned to the specified channel. Once the
event has ended the Digital Satellite Receiver is turned OFF.
By leaving a timer in a ON mode, the Digital Satellite Receiver will tune to that channel
every week at that specified time and day. To turn off the timer, toggle the ON mode to
