DirecTV Cinema (also known as Direct Ticket) is a video on demand platform and PPV Channel available to all DirecTV users. DirecTV Cinema releases the latest films, as well as releasing films before they debut in theaters.

History[edit]

DirecTV currently has deals with film distributors A24 and Vertical Entertainment to release select films exclusively on the platform, 30 days prior to their theatrical releases.[1][2]

In December 2014, it was announced DirecTV Cinema would premiere digitally re-mastered versions by Harvey Weinstein of the films El Cid and Circus World exclusively for the month of January 2015.[3]
