DIRECTV Introduces Wireless Genie Mini

Wireless Genie Mini Delivers HD DVR Service with No Strings Attached

DIRECTV has given customers the power to enjoy the whole-home HD DVR experience without the clutter of wires and boxes getting in the way, thanks to the Wireless Genie Mini (WGM).

DIRECTV introduced the new device nationwide in April 2014, making it available to customers in all U.S. markets. Current customers with DIRECTV Genie service can upgrade to the wireless device.

“Along with our technologically advanced DIRECTV Genie, which is now capable of wireless distribution, we’re proud to launch the new Wireless Genie Mini that will allow customers to eliminate messy cable wires and boxes in every room,” said Romulo Pontual, DIRECTV executive vice president and chief technology officer. “Customers will love the simplicity of wirelessly connecting multiple TVs to their DIRECTV Genie anywhere inside the home or even in their back yard.”1

Customers can connect as many as eight of these devices to televisions anywhere inside – and even outside – their homes without wires.2 It gives them the ability to enjoy their favorite programming all around the house without having to attach a DVR to every TV.3 Because the WGM is small enough to tuck behind a television, customers won’t need a bulky TV cabinet or entertainment center in every room either.

Using one or more of these innovative devices offers the benefits of whole-home HD DVR convenience without the constraints of wires. It provides an even easier way for DIRECTV customers to:

  • Watch, record, pause and rewind programs in any room
  • Watch live or recorded programs in four rooms at once
  • Start watching a movie in one room and finish watching in another
  • Watch new movies and shows recommended by Genie based on the programming you already enjoy4
  • Set parental controls for individual TVs

How Does Genie Mini Wireless Work?

The DIRECTV wireless Genie uses radio signals, similar to a cellphone transmission except that the signals carry digital TV data instead of voice data. The WGM is connected to the primary Genie HD DVR through the included Wireless Video Bridge, which creates a private local network to carry digital information throughout the home without cables.

The Genie and Wireless Video Bridge require professional installation, but installing additional wireless Minis is easy enough to do it yourself.
