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.
Software quality has gone significantly downhill in the last year. App crashes regularly. Programs i schedule to record using the app only record occasionally. Definitely evolving in the wrong direction. Hope they are able to address these major usability issues. They are an at&t company now though... so seems questionable :-/
Every time I try to watch the Raiders game from my phone it tells me I my dvr is in use but, how is it that I can watch other shows and movies just fine. I also get you are not connected to the dvr, I pay to much money for your service's and for me not to be able to enjoy my football games when I am away from home is absolute nonsense and frustrating, This has been a nuisances for far to long. Please fix the issue or I will cancel my NFL Sunday ticket.
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.
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.
Maybe if you guys spent less time developing for iPhone and spent a little time on this, it could be usable. Waste of bandwidth... Don't bother! Update: years later, still trash. I have to go to the website in order to record something when im out of my house because this app is so bad. WHY DONT YOU GUYS FIX IT?
