You still need that $99 GenieGo / nomad device right?


Not required to use the app but required to download and stream content from your DVRs.


VOD and 'Live TV" streaming from DIRECTV's servers also does not require the GenieGo device.

I cannot wait to play with this tonight! 


Would this mean I no longer need the GenieGo app on our iPad2??

Yes, and in fact there may be reason to ditch the old app- at least I have done so after a glitch that may (or may not) be associated with having two apps that access the same file- or create their own files in their own space- the latter is what I suspect. 

"Laxguy" means a guy who loves lacrosse.

The only problem I have with ditching the GenieGo app is that the DirecTV app for iPad doesn't have that handy 30 second skip forward.  Hopefully they fix that soon.  But since we don't use the iPad app other than when we occasionally travel or for the rare times I want to watch something off of the DVR while my wife watches something on the TV, I'll delete it tonight. 


Android app (which I use almost daily) still has the 30 second skip forward.
