Absolutely terrible streaming app. While watching your stream, should you ever lose connection when you reconnect you have to start the stream all over again. You cannot continue where you left off. I was watching football and 10 minutes into I lost connection. I am not happy with this app at all. Constant buffering and optimizing. Nightmare/joke. Directv needs to get working on this app ASAP since most of the mobile consumers are a huge part of their market.
Like everything else at&t is involved with, this app over promises and under delivers. The watch DVR works every once and awhile but mostly does not work. The app crashes almost every time I open it. If this is what more satisfied than cable looks like I feel bad for people with cable.
Unfortunately this app does nothing but buffer. About every 15 seconds it does it. I've used others for other brands and it works so much better. I have this app because I'm in a different area so I want to watch the local news. But so hard because of the Constant buffering.
I loved this app untill the last and this update. The last update made it unstable so that it would crash on opening. After this update it will open the app but only shows a damned "Feeding America" ad with no obvious way of closing the ad. Hence, blocking access to the app. I try to back out of it and the app closes. WTH?
This is seriously one of the crappiest apps for streaming. Constantly crashing, then telling me it cannot stream because my receiver is already streaming. Constantly buffers and "adjusting stream". Doesn't matter what type of connection I'm on and Netflix and Amazon prime don't have any of these issues. The DVR side of things is just as bad. 30 minute show takes over 5 minutes to copy over, and that's only if the receiver has "prepared" it ahead of time. Not to mention that the app needs to be open and upfront in order to transfer otherwise it dies.
After complaining that the app didn't support my galaxy s8 active, an app update came out the next day that fixed the problem. I'm sure it was a coincidence but still happy the app works now.
