What does “Downloading” mean?

Downloading is the process of moving the prepared program from your Genie HD DVR to your computer or mobile device for viewing. You can download the same content to all 5 devices without having to re-record or re-prepare. Your device must be on your home Wi-Fi network to download prepared content.
