The first post TPG purchase version of the DIRECTV.COM website had streaming at the top and one had to scroll down to find satellite offerings. The current version is more balanced offering satellite and streaming side by side.

You don't understand the survey. The first step (choosing a message) helps them pick a tag line when they advertise the upgrade (pick your favorite three and the marketing company will see the most popular tag line). The second step is to choose the two features that are most important to you. It is not limiting your upgrade to just those two features. It is a marketing survey designed to determine what their advertising should focus on.

It won't be a C61KW. Some in this thread think it will be the A21-KW. This says they have developed a new client.
Given how long it has taken to bring some of their products to market, you can never really tell. It took more than two and a half years just to release the C71KW after having been initially FCC approved in the Fall of 2017. "New" could easily mean un-released.

What about what some have said in this thread about just doing a software update to the C71KW and A21KW to make those work with the HS-17 and HR-54? That testing wouldn't take that long would it? That is what DTV could have meant saying they have developed a new hardware.

It comes down to what level of "Genie Mini replacement" we're talking about. Thus far, there haven't been any clients that didn't use either MoCA or the WVB to connect and 4K isn't available in wireless form. Assuming that the Genie Mini protocol can be implemented entirely in software may not be reasonable. It seems likely that RVU is involved at some level.

This isn't DIRECTV talking here. This is a survey company, SKIM, setting the stage for a survey. We must not lose sight of this fact.

DTV abandoned RVU.
