gcdubbau's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/5/17 9:36 AM
Never load correctly, neither recognizes my account and I have been totally unable to watch football games on any device away from home. Miserable apps and miserable support since ATT took over. Just awful.
texas_dave's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/5/17 9:24 AM
I use the app for two purposes: 1. Recording shows remotely. 2. Watching downloaded content while traveling. No issues with item 1. I used to have the old app with the GenieGO (paid $100 for that). Downloading content was slow and painful, but never had an issue watching it. This new app is a vast improvement in regards to downloading. But good luck trying to watch it on a plane in Airplane mode.

Rambosdaddy's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 8:53 PM
The merger with ATT has made it impossible for me to log into my DirectTV account through the app. I’m able to log into my ATT account using the correct credentials but when trying to access DirectTV to use the app, it doesn’t work. The DirectTV app asks for my ATT credentials. They never work even though they work when I log into ATT. Really annoying. Makes me want to cancel both.

Drmmrgrlrcks's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 8:22 AM
Switched over from dish bc of price but compared to dish app, this is a joke. The dish app worked seemlessly with your receiver, even operated just like it so no confusion. On this app, live streaming is a joke, can't get any channels below 200 to even show up as an option & on the very few occasions that they do decide to show up, you either get the message that they can't play due to blackout content restrictions???? Or that this channel is already streaming on another device. Ridiculous!!! Hell half the time can't even the guide to come up on the receiver. Sadly I am stuck for a year. And yes, I have tried uninstalling & reinstalling the app several times to no avail! Doesn't make a difference over data or wifi, close to receiver or away from home!!!

The whole point of this app is to “take your TV with you.” Nice slogan, but in reality the app never works. Each time it throws Error 102 saying I’m streaming on another mobile device. All my mobile devices are around me and none of them in use... This needs to be fixed AT&T! Thousands of other customers are having this problem. Check the message boards...
More than useless's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 5:03 PM
Completely useless because you can only stream to one device at a time. Don’t bother with this app if you have more than one person with a mobile device in your household. POS app!!!
Jdriscool's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 4:08 AM
Searching for content is extremely frustrating. When you search by date/time the app is constantly reverting back to whatever the current day/time is. This forces you to repeatedly have to adjust the day/time slider. I primarily use this to record sports that I can’t watch live and it becomes very frustrating when you don’t know exactly what channel your game is on.

Echowarp's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 10:36 AM
Autoplaying the next episode only works about 50% of the time. It only remembers which episode you left off on about 50% of the time as well and similarly does a bad job of remembering where you were in an episode. Commercials are never volume leveled with the content and are sometimes extremely loud. They play the same commercials over and over again every commercial breaks and usually it’s just a commercial for the show you’re watching or another show on the same network. They disabled the hdmi output so you can’t mirror your phone to a TV. It pops up and says you have to disable “screen recording”, but I’m not recording the screen just outputting it to a TV. This is important to me because I travel a lot and want to use hotel TVs to play on demand content instead of my tiny phone screen.
Me12969's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 10:33 AM
App constantly fails. Can’t watch anything from the dvr. Best of luck getting half of the channels you have at home. Local channels while traveling? Good luck with that. You can definitely tell they are part of the AT&T family. Piss poor customer service, outright lies from everyone you speak to, garbage apps, total sh*t service. My advice, stick with dish network or cable.
Gma loves vampires's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/4/17 10:25 PM
When I attempted to watch SyFy today, got message saying that SyFy is Not available with my current programming package!!! The &@$! It isn't!! After several calls to DIRECTV, and several attempts by them to remedy this problem, (not to mention an email saying that the problem was resolved!😳) I'm Still unable to watch SyFy! One of the main reasons that I have DIRECTV is Because of SyFy! I may be an old lady, but I don't watch the freaking Cooking and Knitting channels! All I can say is that I want this resolved ASAP! At least AMC isn't affected! If I couldn't watch Fear The Walking Dead, TWD, Preacher or Humans, they'd not hear the end of me until the issue was resolved! 😆 11/04/17 Update: It seems like every other time that I try to watch DIRECTV, it just doesn’t work! I get a message to relaunch app yadda...Nothing seems to make a difference. Please fix!!

You start watching a program on your phone from the DVR and if it gets interrupted for any reason there isn't even a resume option and you get stuck watching it from the beginning again. DIRECTV is years behind Dish Networks Hopper and as soon as my contract is up I will be switching back to Dish and the Hopper.

kymberlyj's Review of DirectvReviewed on 11/2/17 3:41 PM
Pros: mostly super easy to use, saves us when we forget to record the game or a show. Nice to be able to watch something on mobile from wherever I am... Handy to use phone as a remote. Cons: Can't always watch shows on app. Doesn't show channel number when searching by name, so you're not always 100% sure you're recording the correct thing. Not perfect for recording sporting events for the same reason: doesn't show channel name, number or date in the search results until you click through individually. Makes it more complicated than it should be and takes longer to find what you want. Overall, though, very handy. Recommend!

Occasionally you can use this app to view a show. But often the streaming fails (especially for Sports — coincidence or conspiracy?). And the confusing UI doesn’t help matters.

SolidTwinkie's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/24/17 9:10 PM
I don’t get it. A company that makes millions with a very low end app. It’s absurd the amount of times I get kicked out, low stream, connection issues at opening and not to mention the tedious (Watch live tv/ Watch your DRV) that doesn’t properly scroll over to the side. While watching a soccer match I was dealing with these issues. I reboot my iPhone, turned off the internet and back on, check I had good connection, used other streaming apps and when I decided to open this one, it had the same issues. Please fix this asap. Considering that people pay for this service gives you little to no room to have a poor running app. Oh by the way I also updated to the newest version because it said it would fix bugs and connection issues. Hard to believe this app really has 4+ stars. I’ll update the review once a stable update gets released.

After years of poor reliability and other app issues when streaming content, they finally have delivered a stable version of their mobile platform. Unfortunately they also disabled connecting your device to a tv or monitor via either airplay or hdmi (note that the android version still allows this output). Really disappointing that direct would disable one of the few positive things about their service. This 20 year customer has just about had enough.

The people responsible for the app must be too dumb to fix the problems!!!!! My daughter has Xfinity and she said it's works great. And just now no programs will open because it says I have missed the viewing window for this show even though it is a live show!!!!!! I HATE DIRECT TV!!!!!!!

Used to be fine app. Useless now. Doesn’t work. Slow. Trying to use remote? Forget it. You’ll die of old age waiting for it to find your receiver. Worthless. I deleted it some time ago. Thought I’d give it a try again to see if it improved. It’s worse. Somehow manages the impossible of surpassing even DIRECTV service itself in how poorly its interface works.

I am not able to watch a program without this app freezing multiple times, often requiring reboots, or just completely crashing. Also, channels below 200 are only sporadically available when the “Live” option is selected. This app has the potential to be a good app if these issues are fixed.

Since the last update the app now violates what is promised in their ads. If you are out of the home or not on your home network, you won't be able to see all the live programs that are on your home box. Even shows that you record don't show up. I only get a handfull of live shows and 1 - 3 of my recorded shows. I called directv support and they said, it looks like I actually found a bug with their software. That's Great.... NOW FIX IT!!!

This app has the ability to be wonderful, yet it fails miserably! I love the concept of watching my DVR, except, the reason I DVR things is to fast forward through commercials. But every show that I attempt to watch I am told I can’t fast forward. If I am honestly watching my DVR, I should be able to control it all. Pointless application.

The most unreliable app ever. DIRECTV should not have problems with this. Every show or movie I want to watch comes up with 'show not available' or 'playback error'.

I have had the miserable DirecTV service for over three months. I have not been able to watch a single program all the way through without this app crashing. I have tried on iOS and Android. ATT needs to fire their developers and outsource the development to India. At least there they can hire four developers for cost of one really good developer in USA. It takes four of them to change a lightbulb. HAHA. I won't be staying with DTV much longer. Even Uverse was better than this. Stay far away from Directv unless you enjoy constant crashes, lockups and poor service when it rains within 30 miles. Actually maybe this SD app was developed in India. That would explain why it is so crappy. Good luck ya'all.

I use the app to watch network TV shows I missed on my iPad. A 49 minute TV show has 15 minutes of commercials, many of which are repeats. I am paying over $100 a month for DirecTV with no premium channels and I can't fast-forward through these commercials for products I have no interest in whatsoever to watch a network TV show. 15 minutes of commercials in a 49 minute show is nuts. At least let me fast-forward if I'm not interested. It's not like I'm already paying for this service.

JadedPuddin''s Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/19/17 3:51 PM
We’ve been part of directv for many years and amidst travels I rely on my app, be it on any of my devices supported to utilize the app basis of directv is needless to say inconsistent. For the amount of money spent on the service and bundling with a great (at-home) wi-fi plan, you’d think that streaming on my device with full bars/strength of cellular signal that I’d be able to watch one show completely. Meaning, I begin watching a live stream episode and not have it just stop streaming mid show. No warning, no service or signal interruptions... just stops. I’ve made sure my app was up to date and assured that there were no issues with my device(s) (7 Plus/Samsung Galaxy S8/iPad mini 4/MacBook Air/Surface Pro 3 — even use via the worldwide web). Not throwing shade on anyone else and the success of their respective devices, just referencing that I’ve tried all my devices across the board without success. I’ve been on the road for just over a week and this has occurred on ever single occasion even when trying to stay current with news. I never thought I’d be a person that would rate a service provider or even an app as I have; because (for me) when you make an investment (supporting, financial, etc) then you’d hope that the quality and not the quantity is of relevance. People work entirely too hard to have what should be the access to some of the minor luxuries of subscriptions, services and entertainment be inconsistent or lacking when monies have been spent (amid and home-based) to ensure when on the go these apps and accessibility’s are available as needed. It’s too much of a monopoly as is among the cable/satellite service providers competing with HuLu, Netflix, Amazon, and many more. The least you can do is provide a descent app service of being able to live steam consistently. Please fix the issue and if you can’t at least say that and I will consider alternative measures for myself and family. Thank you for your time and consideration in this review.

This app has PREVIOUSLY been enjoyable to stream and cast/mirror movies, on demand, and DVR shows via 🍎TV when away from home. Though it has still never streamed & cast anything more than the audio for Live TV, I could still find the app beneficial despite the semi-regular hiccups with dropping the cast or delaying audio/video alignment. As of this last update (October) this app has become WORTHLESS if streaming & casting via 🍎 TV due to a (SCREEN RECORDING ENABLED) error. I have checked every setting including the notIfications & control center settings to disable and remove any and all screen recording capabilities. Everything shown is set to off or has been manually removed in efforts to troubleshoot. I have also been to multiple forums for additional info and can only find 1 like concern on reddit however no fix has been identified. *Developers please provide a patch or fix for this bug/issue.

The mobile app is excellent when you are away from the home and most glitches can be corrected by restarting the app. My main problem is that they disabled Apple TV mirroring function and the DirecTV app complains that screen recording is on. I understand that the content providers would not approve screen recording but Apple TV mirroring just allows you to see your shows in a bigger screen when you can use Apple TV. Please bring back Apple TV mirroring.

Speedaddy's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/17/17 4:32 PM
I purchased a new iPhone 8+ with AT&T AND Directv so I could watch my TV everywhere like they advertise. This app fails miserably though. First, not all of your live streams are available to watch on your phone. Secondly, you must connect your phone to your home network to sync the contents of your DVR to your phone. That means if you leave home and something records to your DVR while you’re away, you won’t be able to access it until you return home. Next, I wanted to “mirror” my phone to a TV and while you can mirror on demand content without problems, you cannot mirror live content to a TV. The audio comes through but not the video. And to top all of this off, my phone updated to iOS 11.0.3 and now the app will not let me watch anything. It gives me an error message saying I need to turn off screen recording to stream my content. I turned it off and the app still doesn’t work. The Directv tech was clueless saying that they are not blocking my content, but I can stream Netflix without any problems. The tech told me that their app doesn’t work well with iOS and that it was an Apple problem. What?!?! I’m already regretting switching to Directv. I’ll be hard pressed to continue their service when my introductory rates ends and they want to jack up the price.

Musicalatino777's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/16/17 1:21 PM
Happy with Direct TV. I have the NFL Sunday Ticket. Very happy that I have AT&T cellular service so I can watch Direct TV on my phone without being charged. I finally linked my iPad and iPhone to my DVR and now I can see my recorded programs away from home. During Hurricane Irma, I had a generator and was still able to have TV. My neighbors who had generators and cable had no TV. Happy with service.

App performs fine in general. App keeps crashing while watching on phone, doesn't support airplay at all, would be ideal if the selected channel could be played on TV even when the iPhone screen is turned off. Secondly, does this app work with new 4K apple TV?

I love my Direct TV app. I can go anywhere and watch all my TV shows live. It’s soo convenient.

App has greatly improved over older versions. Would be nice if you made a Roku App! This way everything could be in one place instead of having to install and sign in to various network apps like Science, HBO, etc.

Suzankay's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/15/17 6:04 PM
Years ago and I mean yrs when some IT people were not even a thought, because their parents were just babies or not even in the womb yet. AT&T had the monopoly on the home land line business. Their monopoly got broken up by the govt, because companies like Sprint couldn’t enter the market. Even Southwestern Bell who was the mother company could split from AT&T. AT&T bided their time and first re- accusitioned SWB. Now they took over Direct TV and customers receive crappy service and unbelievable exorbitant cost. I TRULY HATE AT$T. Even their cell coverage is useless!

When I’m away at college I hook an hdmi cord to my phone to watch it on a TV. However now it says that I’m screen recording which I’m really not. This was a way for me to watch TV while I’m away now I cannot do that. Also the app tends to randomly crash.

I’m loving this new version for direct tv on the go so far it’s worked everywhere I’ve tried it 👍🏻
Meri in Chicago's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/15/17 4:34 PM
I can't watch the first episode aired 10/8/2017 because DIRECTV will only present the choice of watching today's episode on 10/15/2017 except since it isn't yet time for the show to air it won't even let me watch that episode. So I don't get to watch my show on demand from last week or this week. Not happy about that at all. Why have OnDemand if it doesn't work?
a_rod2432's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/15/17 4:31 PM
The app constantly freezes on me! Every time I open it, it’ll load for 30-40 seconds. Once it’s done loading, I can’t scroll, I can’t click on anything. I’m lucky if I can access the app at all. Please fix this!

GatorHater44's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/15/17 2:35 PM
I love all the access and content I get with this app. It’s phenomenal. App navigation could use some work. It’s really cluttered and clumsy. And there are some reoccurring issues with this app which will drive you crazy. I’ll list them here since the app support option takes me to a broken link... 1. Crashes - a lot. 2. Live TV stream will randomly freeze - you have to press pause and then play to refresh the feed then it will work again. Happened at least 10 times while watching an NFL game. 3. The sound level when streaming via Bluetooth is extremely low. To test to make sure it wasn’t my phone or sound system I opened Netflix and sure enough the sound worked fine so it’s definitely the DirectTV app. This is by far the most annoying bug IMO. 4. The screen orientation sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. I’ll rotate my phone to go full screen and nothing happens about 50% of the time. 5. DVR listings sometimes don’t like to update One could argue that some of these issues may be due to poor cell service which would be funny because I’m on the AT&T network.

For two weeks I’ve been trying to use the app! Both my wife and I are unable to log in and no one seems to be able to figure out why! If this continues I will have to go back to xfinity.

With the current Apple product updates your parental controls have been turned off. I realized this when I saw Playboy channel was in my lineup. Took awhile to be able to access the Parental Controls and had to put in my security code however was finally able to put my controls in.

faultlines's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/14/17 8:28 AM
By far the worst video app ever. Amazon, Netflix and even xfinity work 10 times better. It crashes when a commercial plays it can’t connect to my DVR and the connection is terrible. It will state that I don’t have an internet connection when I have almost full LTE strength. Fix this app please.
Milesramstein's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/14/17 7:13 PM
I used to use this app every night to watch my recorded DVR shows on a projector while relaxing in the spa. The latest update thinks that if you have an HDMI adapter plugged into the lightning port that you are recording so it won’t allow streaming. I’m not recording! I’m trying to watch a show I have a legitimate right to view! Please fix!!

With every update you’re logged out, and then when you try to log in you can’t unless you reset your password. It’s almost like they don’t want you to use their app.

jeffprice74's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/14/17 4:54 PM
I had high hopes that this new version was better. And by better I just mean works at all!!! I can’t even log in. It locks me out of my account, supposedly because I have a combined bill with my at&t services. I’ve spent several hours of the last couple days messaging and speaking with no less than 6 different agents. Each one promising to fix the problem. Guess what?!?! I still can’t launch the app or even log into my account online.

This app was fairly good until the recent update. Immediately after the update I was unable to play from iPad to TV through the iPad's hdmi port. Worked well previously. This makes the app useless to me. Anyone at DIRECTV listening???

I try to search for my college football team. I get lucky and find it even though 50 other programs come up that have nothing to do with my team, but you can’t find they channel number it’s on. iPad version has a great sports section including my teams, iPhone app is really terrible and poorly designed by the developer.

Bought a mobile projector and tried streaming app from iPhone with a HDMI connection and seems like app doesn't support the projector and blocks the video. Other streaming apps work.
Dream4445's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/13/17 7:52 PM
Was working great until AT&T took Directv over. After last couple of updates my shows I usually record from app says this program isn’t on your subscription. Please call Directv to upgrade. I have the best package possible and was able to record everything before and now of course my favorites I can’t. Try calling support and No Bueno. Let’s get my programming available to record on mobile app

SuperNavyWife's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/13/17 6:54 PM
For those who need Closed Captioning, this may be one great feature, however, I myself to not require it and it is rather annoying. It has been popping on most channels even when I switch it off. Also, despite the fact that we had a recent update for bugs, it seems to have made things worse. The picture sometimes does not turn along with the phone and I only see half the screen and have to start over. Lots of freezing as well while I still hear the sound. Obviously still more bugs around.
Terra311's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/13/17 6:40 PM
After last update . It will not show all the episodes of the tv shows. Very annoying. And it always shows tv show and episodes that have been deleted. Please fix.
cc192000's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/13/17 6:26 PM
As an app developer myself, I hate to report app problems in reviews but DirecTV ignores their feedback email (they just send an automated email with a FAQ that is only vaguely related to the problem being reported). If a show overruns its normal timeslot by a minute, the guide displays that show in the next half-hour time slot, even though that show only occupies 1 minute of the 30 minutes. For example, tonight (12/15/2016), there are two consecutive episodes of "The Big Bang Theory" on CBS. The first one runs from 8:00 to 8:31. Since the second episode doesn't start until 8:31, the first episode is displayed in the guide for the 8:30 timeslot. There is no way to view the second episode in the guide since it ends at 9:00 (the 9:00 show is displayed in the 9:00 timeslot in the guide). I have written to their feedback email (the link in the app) several times, but like I said, they ignore these emails. 07/14/2017: I just noticed another annoyance with the guide. I don't know if it was introduced with the latest update or if it's been there all along. Say it's 4 o'clock in the afternoon and I want to check out what's on at 8 PM tonight. I bring up the guide and select to view 8 PM. That works, but if I select to view the details of any show, the guide whips back to 4 PM after the details window is dismissed. It's VERY annoying to have to select the time again EVERY time the details of a show are viewed!!! 08/23/2017: I don't have the crashing problems experienced by other users (maybe because I was already logged in and didn't have to log in again) but all the problems I described above remain. Speaking as an app developer myself, their developers are amateurs. 09/26/2017: No progress fixing the problems with the guide described above. It still snaps back to the current time when you view the description of a program in the future, and shows that overlap the next hour by one minute obliterate the listing for the show occupying that time slot. 10/13/2017: Still no progress fixing the glaring bugs in the app described above. It's obvious they don't listen to their customers.
Machaqs's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/13/17 6:25 AM
Consistently crashes. Now when I want to watch my recorded shows it states that “Ran into a bit of a problem. Looks like your receiver is already streaming to another mobile device. To watch it here, please stop streaming on your other device. (102)” So it’s only good for “live” TV. I’ve even tried reinstalling the app to no avail.

I’m amazed at how horribly built this app is. The navigation is awful, the app is glitchy and slow to stream and with the latest update on 10/12/17 the app won’t allow me to use an HDMI cable to stream from my iPad to my TV- an error pops up saying “please disable screen recording before playing”.

gkolowitz's Review of DirectvReviewed on 10/12/17 4:11 PM
I try and watch my favorite show every Wednesday and with no luck I get an error code of 3100 that has something to do with network issues. This problem has been around for 2 or more years now and yet DIRECTV does not seem to care about fixing it. I believe that is considered fraud when you are paying for something they say works and works really well but does not seem to actually work at all. I will be switching to a new tv provider because this is not what I pay for when I want to watch my tv shows when I'm not at home And with the new update I can’t even register my iPhone to the screen without getting yet another error code 210. Can’t you actually get some engineers that know what the f*** they are doing. This shouldn’t still be happening. Come on guys
