THR-22 network features besides On Demand?

Does connecting a THR-22 to a network give you any additional features besides On Demand? I don't find any of the streaming services my regular Tivo has (YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, etc.)

You can schedule recordings on demand and play photos and music from your local network. Oh, and Swivel Search. That's about it. You're not going to see competing content providers such as Netflix or Hulu on a DirecTV box.

Simple answer. Those three are competing with a TV service and a provider is not going to upset the broadcast companies by offering alternatives to watching the commercials.

When I worked for a cable company, we introduced the TiVo Premiere as a DVR option. We were TOLD by Starz that we had to remove Netflix or lose that premium offering.

D* and TiVo are also two different companies with different agendas. The THR22 is primarily a satellite receiver with TiVo software and therefore much less of the fee goes to TiVo than what they get from their own box.
