For customers connecting to DIRECTV service via satellite, Gemini cannot receive DIRECTV programming or respond to DVR commands without being connected to the Genie.

For customers connecting to DIRECTV service via Internet, no other device is required.

Your DVR content and functionality will not change or be deleted.

Gemini will work with any other DIRECTV hardware you already have. Gemini can be installed on any TV, just like your Genie® Minis are today.

Right now, you can access over thousands of streaming apps. And very soon, you will be able to access even more. Separate subscription/login required for 3rd party app content. High speed internet required.

For the best experience and enhanced features, we recommended speeds of 8Mbps per stream.

For the fastest return method: Take your equipment directly to your nearest FedEx® Office Print & Ship Center or The UPS Store® location. No need to pack anything—just bring your equipment in a sturdy bag or open box, along with your 9-digit account number (located on the packing slip on your bill). Do not include your remote control, cables, accessories or any personal equipment, such as DVD players. If for any reason you removed the access card from the receiver, be sure to return it in the package as well. Your equipment will be scanned, packed, labeled and returned to DIRECTV. Once it’s scanned, your return will immediately be noted on your account. Or you can pack the equipment yourself in the box your replacement receiver came in, or another suitable box, and use the supplied return shipping label. (Remember to keep the bottom portion of the label for your records.) Then just hand the box to your letter carrier or drop it off at your local Post Office.™ Your return will be noted on your account when we receive it, which could take up to 2 weeks.
