DirecTV Genie

If the fight between cable, satellite, and streaming video providers was being waged pro wrestling style, DirecTV just picked up the metal chair. Looking to breathe some much-needed new life into the DVR, the DirecTV GenieĀ records up to five HD programs at the same time, and streams that content to any TV in your house. No annoying boxes for each room. A terabyte of storage space means the Genie will record up to four times as much content as cable company DVRs from cable companies, orĀ about 200 hours of HD overall.
