What Is Genie & How Does It Work?
Our Genie HD DVR gives you full HD functionality on all your TVs, and lets you record up to five shows at once while storing up to 200 hours of HD programming. Genie lets you watch select shows that have aired in the last 72 hours and restart live TV—so even if you’re running late, you’ll never miss a scene.
Here’s how it works: new DIRECTV customers get a Genie receiver included with their service and free standard installation. From there, you can connect up to eight Genie Minis via the Wireless Video Bridge to get full DVR functionality on all your TVs. For more information on how it works or to inquire about DIRECTV Genie pricing, call 1.833.385.2161 . See offer details.
