I'm having GenieGO professionally installed. Is there anything I need to
do to prepare?

DIRECTV nomad™ customers: nomad™ is now GenieGO™. Same magical device. We just gave it a more appropriate name.

To ensure that your GenieGO installation goes smoothly, please make sure you have the following items in place:

  • An active broadband Internet connection (Cable or DSL). An Internet connection via satellite or a "hot spot" is not compatible.
  • A wireless router with an available Ethernet port. You'll need to know the name of your network and your username and password.
  • A Mac or PC with admin rights to install software.
  • A DIRECTV.com account with your username and password. If you haven’t already, you can create an account now.
