    Default On Demand

    For those of you with FIOS, do you use the On Demand option?

    We do, but only for the free stuff. We have a Netflix subscription, so it doesn't make sense to pay for an On Demand movie, but the kids watch a lot through the Kids Free On Demand option.

    Some shows are from channels we don't get, and they really enjoy them and don't mind watching them over and over. Others, they've never seen before, and have been introduced through On Demand and enjoy them quite a bit.

    The boys started watching Kipper today, through On Demand, and are really loving it. I've never been able to convince them to take out a Kipper dvd at the library, but they gave it a try through On Demand today, and now are saying that next time we go to the library, they want to try it out.

    What about you? Do you use your On Demand, if you have it?

    We have On Demand through our cable as well. Mostly we use it for the free stuff. Thanks to on demand I can now recite some episodes in thier entirety of I Carly even though I have never watched the show.

    We do however occassionally pay for a movie as well. We don't have anything like netflicks and our $3 to $5 OnDemand movies are cheaper than going to blockbuster and you don't have to return them. Generally we won't pay for one though unless it's a new release and we've been waiting for it to come out on video. Usually it's one of those family movies we've been waiting for ..... like the last Transformer movie.

    On Demand just became available on our cable system. I was excited to watch some of the free tv episodes on channels we don't get. I watched "Survivors" on BBC tv last night. It was ok.

    DirecTV user here. We use the Pay per view and watch maybe 4 movies per month. $4.99/movie.
    We have not been to a video store in years for 3 reasons...

    1. It's easier to use pay per view. (don't have to go anywhere)
    2. The video store we used to use closed down so now the closest one is ALL the way in town... about 5 miles one way.
    3. I'm lazy. It would be me who would have to go a pick em up and drop em off.
    I saved 100% by buying nothing. Best sale of the year.

    Love the On Demand feature on my PVR. I can watch missed episodes of tv shows and I don't have to use up my space for record it lol. Plus I can check out other shows at my leisure. I do only use it for the free programs as I do pay for the movie channels as part of the cable package - addt'l $15/month?

    Thats only one movie in the theatre here and maybe 2 rentals if even and the Blockbuster. Its worth it to me b/c I get numerous movies - older and newer and some specialty networks that come with the movie package such as HBO Cheap entertainment if you will.
