Yup, GeneieGo will not see VOD shows.  you can see them via DirecTV apps 


Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
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.

And PPV (which for the purpose of GenieGo, includes out-of-market sports packages you may subscribe too), and adult channels.

Is this true for the out-of-market sports packages?  I recall a thread not too long ago talking about DirecTV making at least recordings from the NHL package available to watch via GenieGo - both OOH and download to devices. 

 

ETA:  Here's the thread, but I must not have continued to follow it since it seems like the "fix" did not hold.

That is correct.  The office of the president at DirecTV had assured me that the bug had been fixed.  I was then able to watch a game or two at the beginning of the season.  After that, it went back to not working, and DirecTV stopped responding to my requests about the status of fixing this bug.  It has been spreading now too.  Any Nets games that I have recorded on NBATV now will not transcode either.  I would suspect that NHL Network games are doing the same thing (but since the Isles are never on national TV I haven't bothered trying it).  Last year, I watched several Nets games from NBATV on my iPad on the GenieGo, but no more.

 

I've gotten pretty angry over this bug, and I have been considering switching to NHL GameCenter Live, but I live in Charter country, so my 30 Mbps internet service drops to 1 Mbps every evening at 6.  Not a good thing to rely upon when trying to watch hockey.
