US satellite broadcaster DirecTV says it will begin automatically removing pay-per-view films from subscribers’ DVRs after 24 hours. The 24-hour viewing period starts the moment the movie is purchased. The new policy is set to take effect on 15 April.A notice on DirecTV’s website states that demands from major movie studios are behind the change. The new policy doesn’t apply to pay-per-view events, the company says. During the 24 hour viewing period, users will still be able continue to utilise all DVR features, such as pause and rewind. Subscribers who aren’t able to view a movie within the 24-hour period are being urged to use the service’s “record/buy later” option.
