Gemini Air with satellite account

If I purchased a Gemini Air over ebay and hooked into an HDMI port on my TV can I sign in with my directv credentials that I use to check my account or the downloaded directv ap on my firestick.  Will it work?  It seems like it should as when I downloaded the directv app off firestick and signed in it worked for that to watch directv over yhe internet vs. my satellite receiver.

No, the Gemini air can only be used with the DTV streaming service. You need the C71WK Gemini to work on the DTV sat service.

Hello there, Gemini Air works for DIRECTV via Internet and is not meant to function for Satellite services. But you can still enjoy the app for Satellite customers on compatible devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV (4th generation) and Roku. Thanks for being part of DIRECTV.
