I have Direct TV and JUST noticed this feature yesterday so I may be late.  When you press the ACTIVE button, it will bring up the local weather and options to view the daily horoscope and lottery results.  I am not sure how fast the lottery results are posted because I forgot to check it yesterday until last night.  But this is may be a nice little feature for the times when you may not be at your computer on LP or have access to the LP lottery results on your phone, yet you are watching TV! OR if you're like me and miss the Evening Cash 4 and wake up in the middle of the night wanting to know the number without turning the computer on.

Today I will try to make a note of how fast the numbers are updated after the draw to see if it's worth using.

Happily embracing my abundance daily! Big Smile

      Wow ok.  I've been with them for a year and I just happened to see a message about it the other day.  Doesn't mean they haven't tried to tell me about it before, but...it finally caught my attention!

          Don't put a lotta faith in it.

          I stopped using it after catching wrong numbers posted a couple of times and getting tired of having to wait an eternity for them to post the new numbers.

          This was a few years ago though so I guess it's possible they might have gotten better since then.

            Directv customers, check out channel 375.  The Al Jazeera network.  How great it is that the al-quaida have a channel to express their views in American households. 

            I cancelled my Directv because of the Al Jazeera network.  Been with them since 1998.  Loved my NFL Sunday ticket.  It's been quite a change, but the Roku is cheaper even with subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime.

            I know that there will be people say that I don't have to watch that channel, and I never did.  But my monthy payment (over $100/mo) was being used to pay for anti-American propaganda?  Nope.  Not any more.

             

            Just thought you might want to know as Directv never did a publicity campaign to let its customers know that they were adding it. 

            It's on Dish Network as well, I don't know the channel number.

              Thanks for the headsup, NightStalker.

              I don't wanna support them idiots.

              I'll be checking out my options.

                Glad I could help. 

                We have two Rokus now in the house.  We just had to make sure we had enough internet bandwidth to support them.
