Direct tv system access card - When you purchase
a directv satellite system, you are provided an access card, which
is similar in size and shape to a credit card. The Access Card is
typically non-transferable, remaining the property of your satellite
tv dealer. The Access Card will work only with the direct tv receiver
it comes with, and is necessary to receive service.
Locks & Limits (parental controls) - The Locks
& Limits feature built into the equipment lets you restrict
access with rating limits (based on the Motion Picture Association
of America and the TV Parental Guidelines rating systems), pay per
view spending limits, and by blocking the viewing of entire channels.
This is a great feature for parents who wish to control what their
children watch on dish network satellite programming. Consult your
system manual for details unique to your system.
Pay-per-view with more than one television - If
you have one receiver hooked up to more than one television, all
TVs that are hooked up to a common receiver will receive the same
satellite signal and you can therefore watch the same pay-per-view
movie without additional charges.
The on-screen guide - You can access the guide
by pressing a button on your remote control, then you can navigate
around the guide using the arrow buttons on the remote. The guide
lists all directv programming with descriptions of most programs.
The on-screen program guide lets you look up program schedules up
to two weeks ahead, depending on your receiver model.
