internet connection

What is the purpose of the internet connection for the dvr/receiver? Does the receiver need to be connected to internet to watch regular DIRECTV programming?

Internet connection is used for streaming and downloading OnDemand shows & movies, and for processing Pay-per-view payments automatically.  An internet connection is NOT required for regular DirecTV programming.
