Just UGH

This is probably the worst app in the history of TV apps! Its great when it works which is like 5% of the time. Its constantly shutting down on me, timing out, and freezing! Its really aggravating.

This app has major issues

While features like streaming channels is great and works, one of the core features of this app that allows you to set programs to record on your DVR does not work!!! Sometimes it will work and sometimes it doesnt and this is unacceptable for an app this old. And this issue has continued over multiple releases from directv so they arent fixing their bugs. Please work your bugs before working new features DIRECTV, especially when they effect core functionality of your app.

I truly enjoy this app and enjoy it more with AT&T service.


You can not manage your recordings at all. When not at home, you cant: see what is scheduled to record, delete shows from the recordings, download shows (only good thing is you can download shows to an ipad or phone when at home). Also, when the dvr goes out and requires a reboot (every few months) the connection between the dvr and and remote devises goes out. That means, you cant even download shows when at home -it thinks you are away! I hope that the ATT developers will work with those at directv, there app is far superior.

Is not working any more

Please help with. When I try to used the app this is not working. Is sad very sad

Its ok

Decent better than Netflixs just buffers to much
