DirecTV to launch $30 VOD service Thursday April 21st

As previously mentioned before, the $30 DirecTV VOD is finally here. Starting tomrrow, DirecTV subscrubers will be able to rent movies not yet released on DVD but yet not in theaters any more. Will you pay that $30 premium or will you wait for the DVD/BD release? Leave a comment and let us know.


If the actual trip to the movie theater was the only thing preventing you from checking out Adam Sandler, Brooklyn Decker and Jennifer Aniston in Just Go With It, you can still check it out before it arrives on Blu-ray or DVD starting Thursday. The Hollywood Reporter mentions Sony’s flick will be the first one on the service and is already available for preordering on the new Home Premiere service, available only to customers with the satellite company’s HD DVRs, which is about 6 million people.
