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

GenieGO lets you enjoy your recorded shows on your computer or mobile device in a couple different ways:

There are a couple ways you can enjoy your recorded shows on the go: you can stream shows LIVE on your computer or mobile device joined to your home Wi-Fi network or you can download them to your computer or mobile device and enjoy them anywhere even if you're not connected to the Internet.

Here's what you need:

  • 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.
  • A computer or a mobile device with the GenieGO App. Download the free GenieGO app on up to 5 compatible devices.
  • Mobile DVR Service to activate your GenieGO. It will be automatically added to your account at no charge.
