App issues

I will give more stars but it’s always having issues especially tonight playing

App problems!

Can’t get into DVR over half the time. Frustrating!!!!

Can’t stand inconsistency

Works one day, not another. iOS 12 upgrade now rendered this useless; and I have no faith in their tech support asking me if I entered correct password or restarted my phone. Works on iPad but not my phone. HATE being their customer and stuck with a contract

Never works

This app is trash. It will either not load, not recognize the sign on or stop working. I never had this problem with DISH.

Can’t log in

Update broke the app. Keeps making me login and then says there was an error connecting to the server. App is pretty terrible in general but at least it used to work. You should try testing your software before releasing it to the public.

I’m loving it

The best TV app is DIRECTV

Have never had to work so hard for a paid service

Desperately hoping DTV reads this! Trying to call them is useless. Took a week to finally my new account connected. NEVER received access code for the gift card promised, can you say “false advertisement”? Put through many levels of calls (and much time) over that, everyone blaming and referring me to some other department, finally accepted it wasn’t happening. NEVER got the free Showtime, STARZ, Cinemax channels for trial time. BUT, when time ran out, sure showed up on my bill with no problem. After finally getting them to understand that I never had it, wasn’t cancelling it, they started charging me for HBO that was free with my ATT. Spent much more time on phone trying to rectify that problem. I’m writing this at this moment because lately my CORRECT ID and password keep getting denied by the DTV app. I originally had the same username and password for both ATT and DTV, and all was fine. This evening, when I decided to just reset with the code they send me, it goes to ATT site, which then says it will connect me to DTV, and then it STILL won’t accept the code, if it fleetingly shows my account homepage (weird, but it has), it says there is nothing in my playlist and then asks again for me to login and won’t accept. RIDICULOUS.
