DirecTV spokeswoman Jade Ekstedt said, "We are currently in the soft-launch period for this product as we continue to evaluate Nomad before its official rollout later this year."
DirecTV subscribers eligible to take advantage of Nomad need to have a DirecTV Plus HD DVR or a Plus DVR linked to the Internet, as well as a wireless router with an available Ethernet port for connecting the Nomad device.
