We all run into this problem. There are so many late night TV shows on at the same time that we can’t watch them all at once. Then during the day, there’s nothing to watch. What if you could record 5 shows at once and watch them when there’s nothing else for you to watch? DIRECTV gives you this capability with Genie.
What Is DIRECTV Genie?
The Genie is available only from DIRECTV. You only need one of these HD DVRs in your home for you to enjoy the features. The rest of your TVs will need Genie Minis or DIRECTV Wireless Genies. Schedule shows and movies to record on your Genie and watch them on any TV in your house.
Pricing for the Genie varies based on location and the package you choose from DIRECTV.
