True, but those are at an additional cost, just like the Sunday ticket app. I love being able to watch the games when out.
if they can offer true directv everywhere for an additional reasonable cost , I think people would sign up for it.
What's reasonable? Are you talking a monthly fee?
A GenieGo is $150, tops. I got mine for $100 and I was still under contract. I hear others have gotten them free. The GenieGo is a one time cost - no additional monthly fee - and you own it. I have had it for about 8 months and have found it has paid for itself already, probably a couple of times over. When we travel we load DVR'd movies onto our iPad for our daughter. Finding Nemo, Tangled. If you try to buy these off of iTunes store they're $15 each to own or $3-$5 to rent for 24 hours, if that option is even available. I've downloaded shows ($2 each) and movies (again anywhere from $3 to $15) to watch while I fly. Now that I can stream OOH, it's another great added feature. I can remotely set a show to record (say, a Blackhawks game on NBCSports) then log in via GenieGo from anywhere and start streaming the game.
Even without the GenieGo, I think DirecTVs Out of Home "DirecTV Everywhere" offering is pretty good. Go into the DirecTV app and look at networks, and then search for Networks you like and shows that you like. I watch Storage Wars (A&E), Pawn Starts (History), a plethora of shows on HGTV, all out of home streamed via DirecTV.
So again, what's reasonable to you? If you are talking a monthly fee of $5, GenieGo pays for itself by saving you this fee in 20 months. And that's just saving the monthly fee. If you buy any shows or movies that you could record on a DVR, well, that's an even shorter payoff period. Plus, DirecTV's current "Everywhere" offering is, essentially, free. You have to pay for service, but it's a nice, free add on service.
