I gave 4 stars because the app constantly freezes and "updating for optomized viewing" several times while watching. I also cant watch DVR stuff away from my home, which is pointless. I DVR stuff to watch, at home. And last.. If you answer a text or fb message while watching, it will stop the app. Sometimes, I would still like to hear what is going on even if im texting. I do like the convienence of the app and it is user friendly.
This app would be great if I didn't need my phone connected to the same internet as my reciever to watch certain things. Seeing as there isn't any quality internet options where I live, the only purpose this app really serves for me is to set my DVR to record shows when im not at home. We already pay for the directv service this app should be nothing but an extension of that. I shouldnt have to have my phone connrcted to the internet to enjoy the tv I already pay for. Not everyone has access to internet...
I have read several reviews and I have to agree with 90% of them. I can't watch my recorded shows, live streaming never works, it keeps saying register your device then i get an error message. This is a very frustrating app. I don't know if this has anything to do with it but done DIRECTV has been a part of AT&T their service has suffered. I am seriously considering moving to Xfinity.
This used to work fine, but now this app NEVER loads! No matter how many times I update, uninstall or close the app it always says "Please check your network connection and relaunch threw app" it does this whether I'm on wifi or not. My boyfriend downloaded it on his phone, using the same wifi, logged in with my account, and it worked, so I don't understand what is going on.
The app keeps saying can't connect to the DVR. If I reset the receiver, it will connect and download a recording but the next day I have to reset again if I want to download another program. The DVR constantly loses internet connection through WiFi. For $130 bucks a month, everything should work flawless.
Been a direct TV user for almost a year. Some improvements have been made for live streaming. However, for the past week it won't let me live stream. It says unfortunately direct TV has stopped. There was just an update but did not fix this issue. You have yet to get 5 stars from me.
