The DIRECTV Nomad will be officially announced tomorrow but we’ll go ahead and spoil it for you ahead of time. The Nomad allows you to take the recorded content off your DIRECTV DVR and transcode it for transfer to your PC or mobile device. Pretty snazzy if you’re always on the go (hence the “Nomad” title). To make those grumpy network execs happy, the Nomad must have an active connection to your DVR and the internet for it to work. If you unplug the Nomad or no longer have a DIRECTV account, all of your saved content will be erased. Oh- and once transferred onto your PC, Android or iOS device, the content will only be available for 30 days and must use the special Nomad app for viewing. There will be no streaming of any kind going on here. The Nomad itself can store up to 100 hours of HD and 200 hours of SD content and will retail for $150.
