How many hours of programming can GenieGO™ hold for downloading? Can I expand its storage capacity?

Print

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

GenieGO™ holds approximately 20 hours of programming for downloading to your device. Actual capacity varies based on type of programming recorded. Once the maximum storage capacity is reached, the oldest shows will be automatically deleted to make room for new ones.

You can increase the capacity of GenieGO™ by plugging in an external hard drive into the USB port. Note: An external hard drive will be formatted for use with the GenieGO, meaning existing content on the hard drive will be deleted. So make sure to back up any important files you want to keep to another storage device before attaching the hard drive to GenieGO.
