Re: HR24 hookup

No, it does not have to.  But connecting it gives you video on demand and restart feature among others.

Re: HR24 hookup

Hi! I'm changing internet companies and will be canceling HughesNet and going to a Verizon Hot Spot. What do I need to do to hook up my Directv to the Verizon Hotspot?

Re: HR24 hookup

Do you have any suggestions? Our wireless router isn't working well for our family. The Hotspot works well for laptops, etc. Do I have any options?

but remember streaming video uses gigabytes of data

it wont take much to reach your datacap

 

According to Netflix, using their “High” data usage setting runs through 3 GB per hour when streaming High Definition (HD) videos and 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD. The “Medium” setting only uses 0.7 GB per hour for a Standard Definition (SD) video.Nov 6, 2014

Re: HR24 hookup

btw, as a rural customer with no access to broadband, i just ignore those features

 

you dont need internet, its just a convenience if you can get it.

Re: HR24 hookup

Will I still be able to get video on demand without internet? Sometimes we like to get a movie! Smiley Happy Also, will it affect streaming tv on an iPhone?
