QUICK GUIDE: Upgrade to Genie

The DIRECTV upgrade to Genie delivers the ultimate viewing experience! To make it happen, turn to Solid Signal.

Our DIRECTV upgrade to Genie is for anyone with a residential DIRECTV install using older hardware. DIRECTV stopped making most non-Genie equipment, so when it’s gone, it’s gone for good. A Genie upgrade from us gives you the best reception and viewing experience. If you want to keep enjoying your DIRECTV programming, you’ll need to make the move. We’re here to help you with our DIRECTV upgrade to Genie plan.

What is DIRECTV Genie?

Some people haven’t taken advantage of our DIRECTV upgrade to Genie. Maybe they don’t fully understand Genie technology. The Genie is a satellite receiver and DVR that’s superior to your previous-generation hardware. It delivers DIRECTV satellite programming to every room in your home. It also lets you record five programs at the same time, gets on-demand programming, and store up to 200 hours of HD programming.

Do you know what else the Genie does? It handles all recording and reception tasks while people in other rooms get to watch anything live or recorded. Viewers in other rooms also get to pause live TV and watch on-demand content from this silent, tiny box. As for convenience, Genie clients can be wired or wireless, depending on your needs. These units are about the size of a tablet, making them a compact solution for nearly any home.

Now let’s take a look at what your outdated DVR/receiver does NOT let you:

  • Record five programs at the same time
  • Record up to 200 hours of HD
  • Have people in other rooms without DVRs to easily pause live TV or watch on-demand content
  • Host smart TVs or wireless clients
  • Use the smallest (physical size) DIRECTV clients

Are you starting to see what you’re missing out on with that legacy equipment?

DIRECTV Upgrade to Genie: Costs for Existing Customers

A DIRECTV Genie upgrade for free? Technically there is such a thing but it’s rare. To get it, you have to be eligible according to DIRECTV’s rules for free hardware. This includes having the same number of TVs and you’re already paying DIRECTV’s Advanced Receiver Services fee. If you’re upgrading from old, standard definition equipment, you’ll pay more for your Genie. How much more depends on your circumstances. The catch is, you’re going to have to pay that fee sooner or later when DIRECTV phases out its old technology!

Our DIRECTV upgrade to Genie plan puts you ahead of the game. You’ll enjoy the higher-quality satellite TV experience that Genie provides before the DIRECTV blackout forces you to switch. And once you experience the difference in technology, you’ll wish you would’ve upgraded sooner. Best of all, Solid Signal makes the entire DIRECTV upgrade to Genie process an easy one. When you go through us, you’ll talk with a real person on the other end of the line who’ll walk you through the upgrade and quickly get you connected. You’ll be enjoying your DIRECTV Genie upgrade in no time!
