To make your viewing experience as enjoyable as possible we've compiled a list of the most common questions here. If you don't find the answer you need please don't hesitate to email us.
Q. When can I buy an Archive Collection?
DMTV Archive Collections are available to purchase at any time during your DMTV membership. Access to the Archive Collection that you've purchased remains available for the duration of your membership so it doesn't make much sense to order an Archive if you're close to the end of your current membership term. Instead, you'll probably find it's much better value to add the Archive to your order when you next renew, that way, you'll have the benefit of access to those shows for your entire new membership term.
Q. The video players don't appear on my screen - what do I need to do?
The video player that we use requires Flash Player to work. This is a freely downloadable application that is quick and easy to install. Get Flash Player now!
Q. Why do the videos stutter when I watch them?
DMTV shows are streamed to you using a service that aims to provide the best possible viewing experience. Occasionally videos can stutter or buffer. This is because they are playing at a faster rate than your internet connection can download them. If you experience stuttering as the shows play, simply press the pause button on the video player control, allow the progress bar which displays how much of the video has been downloaded to advance, then resume playing.
Q. I have a dial-up internet connection - can I watch DMTV?
DMTV shows are large video files and will not stream well on a dial up connection. While not impossible, we don't think you'll have a satisfactory viewing experience through a dial-up connection. Try watching one of the free shows before you subscribe to check for yourself.
Q. Can I download the videos from the website to watch later?
No, the shows are only available via our website using the streaming service. This means that the videos are not stored on your computer. You can visit our website and watch the shows any time, as many times as you like.
Q. Can I watch the shows full screen?
Yes! Just click on the fullscreen icon on the player controls below the video.
