With GenieGO™, can I download recorded shows to my computer or mobile device from outside the home?


You can select a show from your HD DVR playlist to prepare from anywhere, so it’s ready to download when you get home. But you need to be connected to your home Wi-Fi network to download recorded shows to your computer or mobile device. If you’re in a Wi-Fi hot spot, you can stream the recorded show right away. No need to wait till you get home.
