ATT says you can watch all the same channels at home AND away from home. At least on a nexus 6p running Android 7.1.1 this is completely false! DVR shows and local channels only work while connected to same wifi as genie. This feature used to work fine, so either ATT changed it, or is not competent enough to to fix it. Seems to work fine from iOS devices, apparently Android users just don't matter, works one day, then stops for weeks at a time. EDIT 1-18-17 The app still sucks.
For those who cant reach your dvr on lte read this. Still no dvr streams on LTE useless app Another update today jan 16 2017and cant access my dvr on lte. This is the 4th update and it still won't stream my dvr. Use to work great 5 updates ago. Pay attention dtv there are a whole bunch of users out here can't us the dvr NE more
Worse app EVER! I am now paying for DTV and can't use it! This app will not stay running long enough to watch a 1 hr show. Constantly stops. Even gives the "Sorry Directv Has Stopped" even when I am not running the app. So now I am 1,200mi. from home, can't do anything with dvr, cant watch recorded shows, can't fix it without driving home. Who was the genius that figured it would be a good idea to make this work this way? An away from home service you can't fix unless you are at home???? Great idea!!!! $162.00 a month?
If you offer taking TV with you maybe we should be able to? Destroying my battery life. Never less than 40% of my usage & normally closer to 60% without launching the app once during the day! Always running. Finally got to use it when the app force stops then loses connection to my DVR. Can't record local sports while on the go when it does work. Please fix!! S7 Edge

Never works outside of my home and crashes constantly. Wish they would go back to the version that was available in October. Never had any problems then. Getting even worse. If I could give negative stars, I would. I have gotten the message that the app has crashed 31 times today when the app isn't even turned on. Driving me crazy!
