We've recently built GenieGO into the DIRECTV apps. Please begin transitioning over to those apps for continuing improvements to your GenieGO experience
DIRECTV goes anywhere you go.
With the GenieGO™ device and app, DIRECTV lets you take your home HD DVR recordings with you on your iPhone and watch them anywhere without an Internet connection. Watch them on the plane, at the beach, on the subway, anywhere. Watch downloaded shows on up to 5 mobile devices simultaneously, so everyone in your family can enjoy their own recorded shows anytime, anywhere — all at the same time.
With GenieGO, you can also instantly stream your shows from your HD DVR anywhere you have a Wi-Fi connection - no downloading required. So even if you forget to download, you can still watch your recorded shows when you're away from home.
Requires GenieGO device (sold separately) and any HD DVR (Genie, model R22, HR20 or higher) connected to the Internet.
