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.
So I like the app...for the most part. I just switched from DISH Network and what I liked about their app was the capability to watch every channel I was subscribed to and all my DVR programs. With the Direct TV app, only certain live programs are available for viewing and my DVR recordings can only be watched from my tv, which doesn't make any sense. How difficult would it be to allow those options on your app? Please consider these changes for the sake of better customer reviews. And now it won't work at all. As of 4/6/17
I've had streaming issues. It kept logging me out n starting up again to optimize video. Instead of returning where it left off it would restart and you'd have to look for your show again to continue. I just couldn't believe I was having streaming issues while at home on the WiFi I got as a package with direct TV and att. I don't like how you can't fast forward through commercials while watching your dvr shows. That's why you recorded to have option to skip commercials. I do love the fact that you don't have to use data to use the app. Thank you for that. But little annoying bugs can be fixed and improved. Let's make it faster.
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...
Seems everyone has the same issue. We want to access our dvr recordings on the go but can't connect to our in home network. Device not registered or must be connected to the same network as you your TV is all I get even though I've followed all directions to achieve this. For being a multi billion dollar company now you'd think this would be something that shouldn't happen or at the very least FIX IT! This app is only good for watching the channels you say we can watch. We should be able to watch whatever channel we subscribe to. Isn't that what we're paying for?
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.
