Good to go

I like it.

Love it

A few bugs now and then but the access and mobility I have with the app is worth any occasional hassles. Love it!

Works ok for me

I have no issues streaming on my iPhone 7 or iPad. I like being able to set something to record when I am not at home.

Forces CNN on You

Boo! The latest update forces CNN live stream on you when you look at the live streaming channels. Not only is that wrong to force that channel on me, it also takes up over half of the screen.

Great product - love staying up to date with DirectTV

This is a great product. I highly recommend it.

Doesnt work

After spending more than half an hour trying to get this app to work its no use.The screen turns black with the DIRECTV logo and it just stays there?

Just OK

The app locks up when changing channels. Takes forever or you have to close, open something else, close it and re-launch D-TV. Needs attention now!
