Why do you need a GenieGo device just to stream recordings through your home network.

And since Genie Go only works with Directv thats a minus that out weighs the pluses.

If you can't get a genie go for free maybe. But it also depends on when you need your shows IMHO. If it's really only for airplane flights and you take a lot of them well then..... ;)

Had to go take my wife to the ER yesterday (fortunately all OK). Was nice to be able to stream a couple of my recorded shows to my iPhone while I sat there for over 5 hours.

I'm also debating Sling vs GG, but I really don't need to download recordings, Just stream live/recordings while away from home and possibly out the country, But GG is great also to watch recordings without internet connection, like some international countries, but I don't travel much so Sling is fine in my situation,  Plus GG can't do live tv out the country so that's a moot point.  And it will be hooked up to a less used(other than me) HR24.
