I activated my WDTVLP just fine. Tried to rent a movie via Blockbuster On Demand. In Blockbuster’s information it states you can stream instantly or download a movie (good for 24 hours.) All I want to do is stream direct … no files … no downloading.
Blockbuster was loaded … fine. I browsed, picked out a movie, and clicked on all the prompts that I had to. I come to the last prompt and all it says is DOWNLOAD. I thought, possibly, there would be a prompt to PLAY (like Netflix has) … but none. I tried downloading … it says the download location is not avaible. To make a long story short … I tried everything: over an hour with Blockbuster’s "live chat’ and a few days later, Blockbuster tech phone support. No help. All they can say is WD is new to their hardware and are not familiar. Outside of asking me is my firmware up to date and re-booting, Blockbuster was worthless.
Has anyone tried On Demand from Blockbuster? How did it work out … anything special to do? It would be easier and convenient to have this feature work. Please help.
