VUDU set-top-box and even the Apple TV, hearing of some sort of "24-hour limitation" is nothing new. Unfortunately for DirecTV subscribers, they'll soon be understanding exactly what it means to have content guardians put the squeeze on PPV purchases. Though it was announced late last month, just one week remains until pay-pay-view purchases made through the satcaster have a 24-hour time limit imposed on them from the time of purchase. DTV does note, however, that any flicks in your playlist prior to April 15th won't be affected. Lovely, right?
