Last chance – are you ready for DIRECTV 4K?

OK, so it’s not your last chance. But it’s your last chance to get what you’ll need to get DIRECTV’s first ever 4K live broadcasts of the Masters on April 7.

Here’s what you’ll need:

C61K 4K Genie Mini Client or DIRECTV 4K Ready TV
DECA adapter (only if you are using the DIRECTV 4K Ready TV)

Remember, the HR54 DVR doesn’t output 4K, you’ll need to connect a client or use a DIRECTV 4K Ready TV. If you do use a DIRECTV 4K Ready TV, it needs a wired connection… wireless won’t cut it.

For now (as of April 2016) you don’t need a special dish but at some point in the future that will change. If you order today at Solid Signal, you may want to choose expedited shipping to try to get everything in place by the end of the week. Don’t forget to call Solid Signal at 888-233-7563 to get everything activated!
