I love this App

Excellent service

No DVR access

The feature of being able to access the programs on your DVR from the app does not work reliably. The list of my DVR programs is incomplete and never up to date. The remote DVR access was one of the primary reasons I switched to Directv. Whether its an app flaw or by-design, its very disappointing. But because that flaw has persisted through numerous updates, I suspect its intentional.

Playback issues

Wont store correct playback features says cant parse half the time or will start a show from beginning or wont load it at all.

NOT reliable

When this app is actually working, which is about 50% of the time in my experience, Id rate it maybe 3 stars. Navigation is a pain, and so is the upload time for shows/movies and the app itself. It takes forever to start watching anything. But the other 50% of the time, I wait minutes for the app and movie/show to load, just to have it freeze up and crash. Ive read this from other reviews and have tried everything from switching from iPad to iPhone, restarting device, deleting and re-downloading app, and nothing works. But hey, I might try again next week. Hopefully what I want to watch is still available. What a waste.

Direct app

This app is awesome!! It really is TV on the go, you can watch it anywhere on anything... made me watching my shows when I need to easier!!

Love it

Great app and love it


No wonder people are getting rid of DIRECTV. This app works terrible for on demand. It plays , then makes a weird noise . When you restart it , it plays again , then makes a weird never. Repeat. Same thing. When you pause a show you have to back to the menu .. etc. youd think a company this big theyd be able to figure it out!!!!
