I don't want it if it uses dat! My 5gb would be gone quick. I thought when you downloaded it.. it didn't use data to watch it


And anyone else have the samsung mesmerize? The app works but It only gives my the option to watch now. And not download on my phone.

no the GenieGo does not uses any data (from the internet) when transcoding or downloading. It does uses data to confirm your subscription status from time to time
Here’s to the crazy ones.

The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Plus any software/firmware updates.

My posts, whether fact or opinion, are my own and in no way represent DirecTV or any affiliated enterprise or corporation.

You using the DIRECTV app or the genie go app? They are separate and the DIRECTV app that does watch now is streaming of channels live, not recorded shows. But if its something you set up to be downloaded to your phone over your network, it won't use any data off the genie go app.
