  • An active DIRECTV account and programming package.
  • A wireless broadband Internet network in your home.
  • An available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
  • An HD DVR (model HR20 & later or R22) connected to your home Internet network.
  • A GenieGO™ device connected to the same Internet network your HD DVR is connected to.
