Constantly fails on DVR downloads and replays, had to reauthorize access to the DVR more than 6 times which erases any shows downloaded. Oh it has these mystery messages about DVR busy, can't connect, the latest one relative my tablet not having an Internet connection. If that's so you wouldn't be reading this message. If it worked consistently it would be great, but it don't... Obviously a beta product posing as a completed app... A lot of work needs to be done...
Well this app was ok until I upgraded it to version 4.9.410. Now on my Galaxy Tab A 10.1 it doesn't work. It tells me there is a connection problem and to check my internet connection. However I have a good strong 30mbs signal sitting 10 foot away from the router. And everything else on this tablet works as well as the DirecTV app on my phone using the same network in the exact same location. I'm paying good money for DirectTV and being able to watch it in the other areas of my house on my tablet was a big selling point. This really needs to be addressed and fixed soon.
So, I've left bad reviews in the past and wanted to update and say it still stinks. Watching on demand is an exercise in pain. I get to watch the same one of two ads at every break. The only way to find a show is search and that is slow. And sometimes search doesn't work so start at A and you will find it eventually. Sometimes it crashes mid watch and I have to search for the show all over again to get back where I was. Why is this so painful while Netflix is so smooth?
It's great when it works. But the app closes every 5 minutes while you're watching live. When you're watching live TV, the whole point is that you don't want to miss anything. This glitch is freaking ridiculous, I wad getting so angry!! Fix it now!!
This would be a great app if it didn't stop working every few updates. Nothing is more frustrating than to get used to using an app to watch back episodes of shows I missed, I never heard of before but found here, using my tablet as a 2nd TV, or as an alternative remote for my TV, only to have it lose operability. It's a powerful app - when it's working. I've had DirecTv for over 14 years now. I don't like being critical of it, but I feel the need to be honest. I just wish this app would continue to work and be the window to my DTv service it's meant to be.
Not sure why I can't watch downloaded programs when I'm connected to WiFi. It wants to stream so I have to turn off WiFi to watch download programs. Some programs, when downloaded to either my Android phone or Android tablet, doesn't have sound. Now it won't connect to my WiFi. Only app that says check my connection and restart the app. Keeps going down hill.
