directv insult's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/5/18 9:22 PM
Absolutely the WORST customer service. I had called 7 times yesterday and each time they transfer me to somewhere else and then this disconnect me. The guy who was supposed to install our cable didn’t show up nor called us to cancel. We scheduled another appointment, the same thing happens, nobody showed up. I called to ask for an extension on our direct TV app trial until he installs it.. they won’t give me anything. Terrible company

harveyjimed's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/5/18 7:31 PM
The app was good once upon a time, but now seems to shut down frequently. Also, many channels require you to be on the same network as your receiver to work (why not just watch it on the TV then?). Additionally, the “watch DVR” function does not show any recent DVR recordings, so is mostly useless. This app was one of the reasons Directv was better than cable, but now I find myself just logging in to individual networks sites (e.g. NBC, ABC, etc.) to watch anything. Please fix this app!
race bailey's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/5/18 6:12 PM
It’s funny how I have all bars with the competitors service signal, and my Netflix works fine my Amazon prime videos work fine but the Direct TV app freezes constantly in the same situations and location. Thinking of doing away with the Directv home service after 20 years, because it appears that foul play and metering are happening to customers that prefer the competition.The app works fine for AT&T customers that I’ve sampled.

SailAwayGirl15's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/4/18 9:31 AM
I used to be able to watch an entire program before. Even though this app has always been hit or miss on updating what is available from the dvr, it rarely crapped out in the middle of something, now it does it 100% of the time. When I reload 15 or 16 times, whatever I was watching has disappeared or if it shows up, perpetually craps out again. Extremely aggravating! Why bother.
Montgomery08's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/4/18 6:12 AM
So everytime I click on a TV show to watch directly from the app or to record it. This app keeps closing! It says it's been updated and nothing is wrong with my phone nor my services either! A friend also told me they are as well having the same issue. It's really frustrating if you can't use this app away from home or just on the other side of the house to quickly record and watch something when all it does it close the app immediately! Please fix this cause otherwise this app is boof seriously!

I don’t know why this app has so many five-star ratings. Even though it has gotten a little better, it still always freezes or crashes whenever I try to watch a game I recorded. This is one of the reasons I’m dropping DirecTv when my contract ends. There are so many better - and cheaper - ways to watch and record TV nowadays.
haditwithdirecttv's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/30/18 1:23 AM
August 2017 we moved and got the new genie Right away we had freezing of television shows. They sent out service people nothing worked. It’s been over one year of “software issues “. They have been delayed due to their engineering department not coming up with solutions!! In the meantime we have to stay with them because we are still under contract. It’s been a nightmare. Just got off the call home AGAIN and they continue to be working with the engineering department. But in the meantime they will send another technician out to tell me nothing is wrong with our system it’s the software. Very frustrating because we can’t watch tv. It freezes and then reboots itself. Just a fraudulent company ....

No casting options, crashes often. I get the “We encountered a problem” error most times I try to watch. I confirm my internet speed via Google internet speed test or Fast.com but even with good speed the video quality is poor or fluctuates. I was watching my local CBS channel, then after 15 min it says “this program has been blacked out”. I have yet to watch an entire program successfully!

I’ve been a DIRECTV customer for over 20 years and there service use to be really reliable and now it’s crap. I’m not sure what changed but unfortunately I am very disappointed with every thing. It shouldn’t take 10 seconds to turn on the tv and it shouldn’t take another 10 seconds to change the channel but it does now. Beware future customers before you sign up for a 2 YEAR CONTRACT.

As soon as I can, I’ll also cancel DTV. Too many “glitches”. No mirroring for one!! Most Important😖 Every time it rains, no TV___ I have to Set up AppleTV or Netflix or 📀 MOVIE Also many many billing problems, for instance, last wk they tried pushing HBO. I emphatically refused, stating that I hated HBO and never wanted it in my hse , FREE OR NOT!’ Well, I found $17.95 chgd to my acct. here we go again, another wasted 40 mins to fight this. Now It will take too much time, phone or even online, to check to see if my call worked, so I’ll wait till my nx bill. The last 2 mos I spent a total of 2hrs20mins trying to correct their billing mistakes. Can’t wait till November!!!!! Ms R Jenks

When will the bug fix for this pile of garbage come that makes it work with any consistency? Frequent crashes, virtually never able to download anything, but saving settings, taking ages to even load dvr content (and forget about updating content). Just the absolute worst. Plus zero support. I’d give it zero stars if possible. Edit: just as awful months later after all these “bug fixes”. I am on my home network! And when it finally does download things THEY DON’T PLAY. This thing needs a total page 1 rewrite. Worst app on the App Store

I have downloaded and re-downloaded this app multiple times on multiple devices. I have had to reset my password almost every time and it still won’t work. I have re-registered it and restarted all of my devices and it still won’t work. The main selling point for my to switch the directv was the app so that I can watch the news during bad weather and now I’m regretting it.

I switched to Directv because Dish got rid of some of my favorite channels. I got over it, but once Univision was taken my family and I had to make the switch. I regret leaving Dish. DIRECTV tv app worked fine for about a week. Then once my receivers were installed (that’s another frustrating story) my app stopped working!! Every time I try to log on, the “unknown error” message pops up and sends me to the App Store. Or it’ll say that my account isn’t active.
Chenshi's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/28/18 6:18 AM
This app rarely works. It constantly says titles cannot be played and to try again later. It won’t let me access my DVR to download shows even when I am connected to home wi-fi. Episodes frequently stop playing in the middle and won’t resume or reload. The app doesn’t remember where you left off, so any kind of interruption means starting over from the app home screen and hoping what you were watching resumes. Not convenient in the slightest.

Deserves no stars! Does not play the new episodes. Only appears once on the day it premieres and never again plays, unless it’s on air. Sooooooooo slooooowwwww!!!!!!!!! Does not automatically playback if you get off the app; in order to watch the same show you have click the app and wait til it loads again and then you have to find the show you were just watching. Doesn’t show all the shows your paying for only the popular shows that are recently playing. I shouldn’t have to search for the show, the show should just appear not only whatever shows you think I want to watch. 😒🙄 Get it together direct tv.

Every so often this app logs me out and once I try to log back in, it says “missing username” and sends me to the apps AppStore page like it wants me to download it or something.....but how can I download an app I’ve already got? It works great when it lets me login. And it will work great for a few days to weeks, but it never fails, one day I will open it and it will have logged me out and then I can’t log back into it. It usually prevents me from logging in for a few days to weeks, but eventually I can delete the app, re-download it and it will let me login again.....but who knows why or how long it will take to be successful. Why this app so dumb? I’ve been watching for the past few weeks with no problem and guess what happened this morning? You guessed it, it logged me out again and I can’t do anything to login......guess I’ll be waiting for a few days to weeks before it decides to let me back in.....smh I did give 2 stars because it does work great when it lets you login.....

It keeps wanting to reconnect and authorize every time I change the channel (translation: it takes some time to change channels). If I decide to watch in landscape mode, more often than not I’m locked in this view and can’t get out nor go back. I then have to kill the whole app and restart it. This is not a modern app by a long shot!

It keeps wanting to reconnect and authorize every time I change the channel. If you watch in landscape mode sometimes you locked in there and cant get out. I then have to kill the app. What a big freaking waste of time.

This mobile app doesn’t work. For whatever reason it doesn’t allow you to log in if your directv and internet are combined through AT&T. Customer support is of absolutely no use and their “engineers” have yet to fix this issue. I’d give it less stars if I could because 1 star implies you have the ability to test the product. Useless.
Skippythelf's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/23/18 7:47 AM
This app is a piece of garbage. It hasn’t worked properly in months and I still can’t get it to work correctly even after updates. AT&T/Directv need to get it together and develop a functioning app.

Every time I try and log in I get a missing username error. I know the log in is correct because I use it to log into the account online. This app is junk. Directv just says to delete the app and try downloading again...great solution if that actually fixed the problem. I see online that I’m not the only one experiencing this problem. At what point do you maybe take a look at the app and try and fix it on the directv side??

So many problems it’s amazing this made it to the App Store. Live streaming never works correctly, getting error messages like network connection lost, even though my internet works fine for other apps. I also get many other error messages while trying to stream. I’m forced to use the NBC app, which is sadly more reliable with extra commercials. Thanks AT&T.

This app is full of bugs. I log in it say missing user id. I press OK App Store launches to open DirecTV app. In which I click on OPEN and send me back to the app. I log in and it says missing ID. I press OK and App Store launches I click on OPEN and send me back to DirecTV app. I log in ... — I ask you developers of this inferior product. Do you think we customer love infinite loops like this? It says how dumb and how careless and shows how much you developer of DirecTV don’t care about this app. So many bugs yet you all never chose to fix it. It show how much you all don’t use the use your own app.

I loved being able to use my smart phone as a remote for the satellite box and because I’m visually impaired it is easier to read the guide on my phone too. However at the last software update it kicked me out of the app in my phone and will not allow me to sign back in. I double checked both my log in and my password and they are correct but it keeps telling me error missing user name. Very frustrating.

I’m paying a lot for the service and am not getting much in service. First I cannot and have been able to log on to the app. My log in credentials don’t work. I keep getting an Error message. I’ve talked to their tech support over a week ago and nothing is happening. Also, ever since ATT took over, I’ve been having troubles with my ATT Directv saying I don’t have enough download bandwidth even though I have 100Mb Cox download speed. What, do I have to get rid of Cox and get ATT internet service for this to work. CAN WE ALL SAY.....MONOPOLY?

Trash app considering you can’t even cast anything. Can’t use a lightning to HDMI cable to display either. Get with the 21st century. Every other app I use for a channel or station allows you to connect to a smart TV or Chromecast. Wish I could rate this a 1/4 star.

Just updated my iPhone to IOS 12 . Now the app doesn’t recognize my login. This app is worthless. Why can't this App just work. It starts off working then it just looses its connection. It tells me that I'm not connected to my wifi network when I'm sitting right next to my wifi. The picture will freeze but the audio will still play. Where is the guide and why don't you have the multi task feature? Where we can shrink the screen and open other apps in the background. Why can’t the app go back to where I left off after I hang up a phone call. Why do I have to keep telling the app that I want to watch a show on my iPhone after I already clicked watch on iPhone.This app needs a lot of work
JR Oman's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/20/18 8:25 PM
I was at the ATT STORE... I HAD NO PHONE SERVICE CONTRACT ... one of the agents offered me unlimited gigs IN MY PLAN, with the same price package I had, only with the condition to have the agreement for two years of the direct tv... then the bills starting increasing... I went to the store about for 10 times and the same agent blamed to the ATT system, due to this type of informality, I decide to cancel the direct tv... ATT agent was a liar... he didn’t accomplish what he promise... the loyalty department didn’t work either...the at&t store mentioned is: ATT STORE AT Monroe, NC .

TJ Floyd's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/20/18 5:14 PM
It worked for me for 24 hours and says unknown error. That’s really awesome I’m so happy it doesn’t work. I really didn’t want to watch my new service anyway till my receivers got here in the next couple of weeks cause I’m a glutton for punishment and like to get walked on by these type of companies like AT&T and Directv it’s not the first time I’ve gotten the shaft by them both and I’m sure it’s not the last might as well keep this wonderful tradition going. Thanks again for keeping it going!! Yay!!!!! For me!!! Peace out!! Oh I might add that even though it’s useless to use the app it looks pretty on my phone so that’s kind of a bonus I guess? At least I get something out of it, cool!! Thanks again and God bless!! Oh and also if I may say if your reading this and you’ve bundled like me it’s probably too late for you and you’ve done the two year contract and been luckily duped like me congrats for falling for another marketing scam from them like me to try to let you think your saving money and not only you have the service with the receivers at home if you want to watch it in your phone you will have to pay for the Direct Now service $35.00 a month starting at the lowest rate and amount of channels so if you travel a lot it’s not so good but if not you can just watch it at home and just erase this wonderful useless app off of your phone and don’t let some sales rep try to con you into basically paying for the service twice just to be able to watch it on your phone!! Awesome isn’t it I’m just overwhelmed with joy to be able to share this wonderful experience of mine to you hope your just as lucky as me cheers and Ciao!!

Flamingo0519's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/20/18 3:39 PM
I have many complaints about this app... - Sometimes when I open the app, it automatically starts playing a program on the channel that I was last watching. The bad part is that when I find a show that I want to watch, it still plays the other show in the background. - Sometimes when I open the app, it says I must be connected to the same network I want to watch. What’s the point of “Taking it with you?” - Sometimes when I open the app, it says I do not have access to that channel. Huh? - Sometimes when I open the app, it says, “ERROR. We’re sorry, this program has expired and is no longer available.” - Sometimes when I open the app, it wants to know my location. What’s up with that? I know the app is free, but using it is included with the exorbitant amount I pay for DirecTV every month. This should work!
earthspaceteacher's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/20/18 3:20 AM
Desperately hoping DTV reads this! Trying to call them is useless. Took a week to finally my new account connected. NEVER received access code for the gift card promised, can you say “false advertisement”? Put through many levels of calls (and much time) over that, everyone blaming and referring me to some other department, finally accepted it wasn’t happening. NEVER got the free Showtime, STARZ, Cinemax channels for trial time. BUT, when time ran out, sure showed up on my bill with no problem. After finally getting them to understand that I never had it, wasn’t cancelling it, they started charging me for HBO that was free with my ATT. Spent much more time on phone trying to rectify that problem. I’m writing this at this moment because lately my CORRECT ID and password keep getting denied by the DTV app. I originally had the same username and password for both ATT and DTV, and all was fine. This evening, when I decided to just reset with the code they send me, it goes to ATT site, which then says it will connect me to DTV, and then it STILL won’t accept the code, if it fleetingly shows my account homepage (weird, but it has), it says there is nothing in my playlist and then asks again for me to login and won’t accept. RIDICULOUS.

jann1033's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/2/18 3:38 PM
Signed up for one price, added a few more channels for an agreed upon up-charge. Somehow the bill was miraculously double the agreed upon charge. It had been a year of monthly hours long calls and disconnected service because they 1) can not charge us what they KNOW is the correct amount 2) can’t figure out how to send a bill to the right email( checked multiple times, they have the correct email but somehow can’t send send the bill) . Bundled with AT&T so that is a constant shuffling back and forth as to who it to blame. The latest is , almost since we started with Direct TV is has taken multiple tries to get a signal when we turn on TV. They claimed it was the tv not their equipment, tv company says “nope” and Direct TV finally admitted it is the receiver but if we want a working receiver we have to pay $75 for a technician to bring it out or $20 to pay for shipping. NO OTHER OPTIONS! So now we get to, need to try 50 clicks every time we try to turn on the TV, or reset it multiple times at the receiver or leave the tv on day and night. Yep, as soon as we can, DIRECT TV is gone. Unfortunately we have limited options in our area.

Mimimees's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/16/18 9:54 PM
DTV lied in so many ways to get me to sign up: 1. Said did not have to have Genie in all extra room; that Roku would work. Lie 2. Said a Smart TV would work; just download APP.Lie 3. Said my package would get Destination Americas. Lie 4. Said could watch from my devices. Lie Will not work on phone; DVR part not working on Ipad. Their “help” is outsourced; said they would upgrade a tech ticket and call back. Over a month; no call. Have called about 20x; on hold, transferred; given wrong information. Hours down the drain... Gotta say Dish is no better. 😫

The tv receiver will not stay connected to the internet. Which renders this app useless. Have made numerous call to Direct TV and the problem persist.

Americans are disgusted with Multinational Companies stealing our money. Paying for service when you cannot speak to an American or access a website we are paying for with our hard earned money for a system supported with US taxpayer money benefiting the Globalists who call us Unredeemable Deplorable.

All I want is to be able to watch tv or dvr when we are away from home on our iPhones! This app and its errors all the time or some other reason is just garbage! Second worst mistake I ever made was switching to Directv! First was my first wife!! Can't wait to go back to Dish Network and their Sling capabilities!! Get Dish people!!

KClas15's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/16/18 7:12 PM
I have had Direct TV since Sept. 2016, I just moved in May 2018 and I moved my service with me. I called yesterday to see when my 2yr. Contract was up and I was told May 2020. I was confused about this so I ask how is that when I got this contract I'm September 2016. She stated when I moved my service and got the wireless mini genes instead of the mini genes I had they put me into a new contract. First of all I was not notified about when I changed to wireless mini genes that this would happen. The installation tech is the one who suggested that I get the wireless mini genes. I told the Supervisor of retention that I was not told this and he said that they sent me and email regarding this. We then confirm my email address and that was an email address I set up for only At&t. I no longer have that email address. I ask did Direct TV send me something in the mail and he said "No they sent it by email and not by USPS mail. I ask to disconnect my service and he told me I will get charged for early termination. Now I'm screwed with this bill or if I disconnect the Early termination. I will take my chances and I disconnect my service. I will not let this rest. They are very dishonest.

So far any event I’ve wanted to watch is unavailable unless I’m on the same network as my home box. Defeats the purpose. I was told hey never miss a game bc of streaming...well bought Sunday ticket made sure I can stream and found out I can’t utilize it unless I’m home. I had dish network and could stream anything and everything I was subscribed to anytime every time. Very overrated feature that makes me regret switching.

The app never works as it should. Consistent error messages and connectivity issues. Sometimes shows are available for download from your DVR and sometimes not. I got a message that a download wasn’t available to be deleted now, try again later. What a joke.

One thing that could be improved would be the ability to stream all channels through the app. I’m on the road a lot and find that I can only stream directv selected content as opposed to live streaming, or on demand streaming, the same content that I can on my home receiver.

I never know when this app is going to work. Some times it works great like it’s supposed to but most of the time it either doesn’t load or I get some error message saying I’m streaming somewhere else or unable to stream for some stupid reason. It’s not my internet connection because every other streaming service works fine even Netflix and Amazon prime video.

313tlrv's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 9:15 PM
I really use the app a lot. It just does not always work well. It will pause for long periods when live streaming. Then when it starts up again often the show your watching will be on the screen and you can also hear the previous commercial in the back ground. When I want to watch a show recorded on my DVR half the time it will not come up. So like I said if it worked properly most of the time it would be great.
Dragon Emperor 00's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 8:51 PM
The app seems very confusing to me and when using it on tablet it looks like they just cropped everything to fit a tablets screen size. On top of that once I finally find my recording and wait 10mins for it to load the quality isn’t even HD, which makes it incredibly hard to watch sporting events. And when trying to fast forward through commercials the 30sec skip takes 30sec to load. I don’t hate the app but it definitely needs reworking.

Eblackstar's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 3:37 AM
How can Netflix, Hulu and so many other streaming services create hassle free apps and DirecTV constantly fails to load and is a frustrating experience. Be prepared to constantly restart app and continually stop and start programs to get 5 minutes of continuous viewing. I’ve stayed with this app since inception and it’s failed to perform at even 10% the stability of Netflix or Hulu. You are better off loading individual channel apps and using your DirecTV login to watch them.

NiCKna3me's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 2:34 AM
I’m not really sure what bugs there were before 9/14/2018 with the app but when I did the update yesterday the app is now working poorly. Before the update I was able to watch everything fine: no glitches, movies not freezing, no loading issues. Now after the update I can hardly get something to load and then it only plays for like 2 min before freezing and saying it can’t play the content. So I switch devices, iPad, and attempt to watch there with the same issue. Turn on cellular for both devices and try again. Same issue. Turn on the hot spot for the iPad. Same issue. Turn off both devices for 1 min then turn back on and attempt again. This time movie loads...for 2 min then freezes. Each time I’m having to completely shut down the app in order to exit the screen of what I’m trying to play. This is very frustrating as this is the only time I’ve ran into any issues with the app.

Scrapper55's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 1:16 PM
Every time they fix the app, it gets worse. It used to find my DVR, and I could watch my shows upstairs in bed. Now, even when I plug in the IP address, it can’t find my DVR. Today, I was live streaming a show on TBS which is a public station. After each commercial, an error message would come on telling me it was not available for DIRECT streaming and I could go watch it on my TV. And yet I’ve been watching this channel for the last two hours. I would close the app and reopen it and voila it works and I could finish watching my show. Quit fixing what ain’t broke!
js25762's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 12:16 PM
What’s the point of having your dvr on the app when you can’t watch anything while your away from home. I work off shore so I’m gone from home for weeks at a time, the shows i record I’d like to watch while I’m away. But it says I must be connected to the same server as my receiver. Ummm if that’s the case I’d be home on my WiFi and have no need for the app. This is app is total garbage and as soon as my 2 yrs are up in a few months I will be leaving.

bitelybirder's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/15/18 10:59 PM
I’m frustrated with this app and with ATT coverage. When I’m somewhere with a strong enough signal to actually use the app, playback is often jerky and will start and stop or freeze up completely. Today I have a good signal but the football game I was watching (from our DVR) froze up and now I’m either getting an error that says the “URL is not found on this server” (on my iPhone) or its crashing the app (on my iPad). I’m so sick of this app not functioning properly and am ready to find something else. I’m on the road a lot and when it works it’s great, video quality is outstanding, but more often than not it does not function.

I’m trying to watch my recorded shows on my phone since I can’t watch it on a computer which makes way more sense since I has a way bigger screen. I can’t get my newly recorded shows from dvr box to play on my phone. Do I really have to wait 24 hours so I can watch it? That’s messed up if I have to, you guys need to fix both issues. One so I can watch a bigger screen and two let be able to watch my newly recorded shows from my dvr box. Thanks

Milehighaviator's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/14/18 11:08 PM
I have been a directv customer now for over a year and I have it a chance. I don't mind the service at home if I am watching it live but the on demand and app is horrible. I was a Comcast customer prior and they are years and years ahead of the game for on demand and mobile access to shows. For DirecTV to be now owned by a mobile company I figured this app might get an update to finally make it worth it..... But I have only been left with the same 90s type app that works like my Nintendo cube did when I was a kid. I hope they can get it figured out before my contract is up.
scared shritless's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/14/18 10:59 PM
I love the app but a few things drive me crazy when watching a series. If in a bad area and you have to go back to the episode, it sometimes starts from the beginning even though I pushed resume. Also, again when watching a series, it doesn't always pull up your recently watched. So you have to pull up the show and try and remember which episode you were on. And we pay for DIRECTV and when we record something at home we can fast forward through the commercials. We should also be able to do it on the app.. just my two cents worth.

Freeway Bowler's Review of DirectvReviewed on 9/13/18 3:14 PM
Pros: •You can watch videos on your phone. •You can watch some programs on from your DVR Cons: •The layout is confusing •Video selections disappear from the playlist •Some shows from your DVR are only available to view as a video on demand on your phone. •Videos on demand usually can’t FF thru commercials. Overall, yes you can watch your DVR, but they make you watch commercials to do so. The app is confusing to use and sometimes I’ll start a show (especially with CBS shows) then come back later and the show isn’t available. Could do better by just going to the network site of the show you want to watch.

Even with 3 or 4 data bars on iPhone, too often app does not open a channel, especially Fox News (almost always) - Channel 360? No problem with CNN or MSNBC, etc. Has to be a deliberate act if censorship. Anyone else experiencing this I would recommend filing a complaint with the FCC as this is broadcasted content over the airwaves and falls with FCC jurisdiction. We are on to you ATT! UPDATE (months after above) - Still same issue. Censoring Fox News. All else works. How convenient. I am cancelling my huge Directv account and going to Fios. This app is a lie and ATT needs to be held accountable. Better complaint is to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Live tv works fine but good luck watching anything on your DVR. Half the time it won’t connect, when it does connect your shows aren’t showing up. When your shows show up it won’t let you download them (meaning you can’t skip commercials or watch seamlessly). I’ve tried removing the app and downloading again. Nothing. I’ve tried turning my phone off. Nothing. I’ve tried both, nothing. I sit in front of my DVR while I’m watching TV on the actual TV and it says it can’t connect to my DVR because there’s no internet connection. Well then how am I watching TV?? 😡 I hate DirectTV!

This App is a terrible piece of work. I suspect the infrastructure needed to tie it all together is severely lacking. Frame freeze ups and audio drop out while on Cellular as well as Wireless connections point toward amateur hour implementation. iPad, SE, 6 and X all see the same performance.

go- jong's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/30/18 11:12 PM
Just spent 3 hours on phone with tech support trying to determine why my app wouldn’t register my DVR. Was told it was a glitch in the app. But nobody but me is having the issue. Was told it was my internet but all my connected devices work. Was also told that you cannot stream DVR recordings, only download them if you are on the same network as the DVR. This app used to work - I watched recorded programs while out of town 2 years ago, but that was before AT&T got involved. If you read the above description, it states that you can stream OR record from your DVR, yet tech support states you can only download. Techs are not really techs, they only read through a troubleshooting guide.

It’s great that I can watch actual tv on my phone, but the problem with this app is that it’s waaaay too glitchy... it frequently crashes and has connection problems, and if I watch something on my phone and then try to watch it on the tv, It starts me over and I have to fast forward to find my part in the show/movie. The app needs to be fixed, to be more user friendly the way Netflix and Hulu are designed. Thank you, I hope that something changes.

I have DIRECTV and I also have AT&T cellular. I appreciate the free data however I don’t appreciate every four minutes there is a two-minute commercial unless I’m watching live TV or a previously recorded DVR. If the date it was not free I will delete this app and not recommend it to anyone. Being in mobile app I’m sure as I am most other people also are cramming in time to watch a show when I have some free time. Now I cram in commercials when I have free time. And I cannot longer screen mirror when on vacation

mbc2237's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/28/18 12:12 PM
Try to download a video. “Sorry, there has been an error.” Try to schedule a recording. “Sorry, there has been an error.” Try to watch a recording. “Sorry there has been an unknown error.” Try to watch live tv. “Sorry there has been a critical error.” So often my receiver cannot be found. Even when in the same session, I will lose connectivity to the receiver. The app will lose track that I am on my home network as well, during the session. Killing the app usually resolves this. The feature set of the app SHOULD be pretty darn good but the app is buggy and half baked.
Merscooby's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/28/18 11:40 AM
It takes 5 times as long on Direct Tv to download a show than it does on Amazon Prime or Netflix. While watching shows, if app cuts off or pauses, you have to start show all the way over and can’t fast forward through the SAME commercials you JUST watched. Terrible.

I want to give it more stars, but I cannot. Most of the time the channels do not load properly or the lag is horrible. When it does work it’s great, but it works only 80% of the time. Disappointing for someone that has been a DirecTV customer since 2005.

For the past week ever since my account was, as directv customer service describes as a “successful migration”, to AT&T, i have not been able to access my account via mobile device. Keep getting oops something went wrong try again later. Well a week later and 2 calls for an hour a piece with AT & T customer service and I still cannot access my Mobile device services which is why I pay the exhorbitant price of directv in the first place as I travel several nights weekly for work. Well enough, last night switched to Hulu for $55 a month which allows mobile access for up to 5 devices and lots of channels in their live tv program. Bye bye directv... after 14 years, AT & T finally completed my successful migration to another provider.

TaterBugTussle's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/26/18 3:16 AM
I’m so confused by this app. It advertises “Its your tv. Take it with you.” However it’s almost impossible to use if you are not inside your house directly connected to your directv receiver. I have tried on so many occasions to watch my dvr when I’m out of town. It may work for a few minutes, but it quickly stops and states it “Can’t connect to dvr”. Last night I was able to watch 5 minutes of one episode. I had to hit pause and when I returned, suddenly my dvr couldn’t be found and it said I had to purchase the same episode before watching again. When I contacted customer support, they asked if I was home which I thought was a stupid question because why would I need the app if I’m home. Thats what I have TVs for. When I said no, he informed me that this is a common issue. He could fix the problem but it would take 24 hrs. Here I am 24 hours later, I was able to finish the episode I started yesterday but now it “cant connect to dvr” again. This is unbelievably frustrating! Do I have to wait another 24 hours before I can watch another episode?!? Apparently you can only “take it with you” to different rooms of your home. Completely useless!!

frustrated former Skype user's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/22/18 3:22 PM
I travel a lot, so I thought this would be great when I'm on the road. It doesn’t work. I open the app and some channel starts playing(one that I have no interest in watching). While that’s playing I look for my channel. I watch baseball on channel 676. You can’t just select 676. You have to scroll thru 675 other channels to get to it. Sometimes it’s there other times it’s not. Other times it says “can’t find your receiver”. Doesn’t help you find your receiver. So, when I get home I try it and it usually works although last night it wouldn’t let me watch it on my iPad but would on my tv. I’m at home-I know I can watch it on tv! The app is not user friendly so maybe I’m just not doing it right but I’m doing my best and it doesn’t work for me.

Trying to record a baseball game from my ‘MLB Extra innings’ subscription: I dial up the channel and time and the time and channel keeps changing. When you go back to record another game, say for the next day, the time and channel reverts back to the present time and you have to start all over again and then it ‘jumps’ all over the place (time and channel). Very ‘herky jerky.’

IGW KC's Review of DirectvReviewed on 8/17/18 1:11 AM
Search functionality is incoherent at best. Results are truncated so most of the time it’s impossible to tell the difference between similar shows and clicking into the show screen, the titles are still truncated. What makes it worse is there is no relevant information in the search results. So for example if you want to search for a game that is on right now usually you get results for games that are a week or two in the future. Even worse it does not even tell you what channel number your search result is on for a given result. If the search results would display the channel number (even if that particular search result is showing a game two weeks from now) you could at least check the channel see if today’s game is on that same channel. If feels like there was absolutely zero thought put into search results and relevance.

The app is fine with the exception that the dvr shows never refresh and deleted shows stay on the app forever. Can’t watch shows very easily from your dvr on the app.

I have this app downloaded on my iPad and had it on my previous phone. But when I try to login on my new iPhone I receive an error message and get redirected to the U-verse app Download. It’s very frustrating
Slinkster213's Review of DirectvReviewed on 7/3/18 11:52 AM
This app has been broken for over a month. I have scoured the forums for a fix. Nothing works and judging by the forums I’m not the only one. All of the different resets, password changes, install, uninstall, give access, don’t give access, etc, nothing works to fix this app. It’s broken and directv and at&t don’t talk to each other. Absolute garbage.

Dsmturbodog's Review of DirectvReviewed on 7/2/18 3:56 AM
It just took an hour and 15 minutes to watch a 40 minute show due to commercials every 4 mins you have to watch at least 2 minutes and 30 seconds of commercials and the commercials are way louder than the show so you constantly have to change volume levels
-A-88-'s Review of DirectvReviewed on 7/2/18 3:18 PM
Once you click on it so it will show you the available episode. Every time I click the “available episode” it tells me that the episode is not available. I have been experiencing this since we have started service approximately four years ago. Also I am unable to access the majority of the shows on the DVR from any phones and or tablets.
Edgardo1121's Review of DirectvReviewed on 7/2/18 2:15 PM
Why do I have to be connected to the same network as the receiver to be able to watch some channels on the i phone ? It doesn’t make sense if im connected to the same network on phone and receiver obviously im at home so why would I need to use the app.
Sinful Brit's Review of DirectvReviewed on 7/2/18 1:22 PM
I’ve had DirecTV now AGAIN for 3 days and so far I HATE it! You’ll be sitting here watching tv and next thing something pops up saying it’s blacked out as owners don’t want you watching it, then 1-3 mins later comes back on. I also hate the search feature it’ll let me search but not watch. I switched from Xfinity just for Disney jr and nick jr but might be switching back as I was promised so many channels yet the 3-4 channels I watched on Xfinity and was promised are gone. Smh I knew I shouldn’t have switched I always hated DirecTV I don’t know why I thought they’d change always WWAAYYY higher priced than others and a lot more problems

Keep getting an unknown error and then it takes me to apple apps to download Uverse app. According to blogs AT&T and Directv support they keep blowing people off saying they have “escalated” the issue. Posts date all the alway back to April. So apparently they don’t care. Arrogant!
jstabl's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/30/18 6:18 PM
Since the last update, you can no longer cast or air play to apple tv or any tv period from the app. You can only watch on your devices small screen! This is a deal breaker for me! I will be canceling my att and direct tv service due to this! For $550 a month you would think they would treat customers better! But no they want you to add the DTV now service at additional charges!

I used to love it when I missed a show to just be able to go on to the app and plug in my iPhone to the HDMI cord (since I don’t have a tv that can screen mirror) and now it won’t work! It’s BS!! I pay for it so if I want to be able to plug my phone into the tv and watch it I should be able to! I also travel a lot and loved the fact that I could watch my stuff anywhere by plugging in to any tv, but not now! This is why everyone is dropping DIRECTV and cable because Hulu and Netflix both updated their apps to make sure no one had this problem!

WriteGuy1960's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/29/18 5:39 AM
I find it interesting that your app never crashes during commercials, but when the show that I’m watching returns ... it crashes virtually on cue. In fact, I can almost set my clock to it. With the money that I pay for AT&T with my iPhone combined with DIRECTV, I would expect a little more from your software development engineers.

rjolmstead's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/29/18 2:01 AM
Half the time when I try to stream a channel it won’t connect to the channel I want, and the rest of the time the stream stalls or the app crashes in the middle of what I’m watching and I can’t get back to it. What suuuuuper annoying is when a show is available to watch from the beginning after it’s started but fast forward is disabled and the stream stalls or crashes and in order to watch the end I have to rewatch THE ENTIRE SHOW! Please make the app and your streaming system more stable. Cable is looking better and better all the time.

T. Hollister Jr's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/28/18 6:31 PM
The app brags of data free streaming and the ability to watch anywhere but you might as well just sit on your home WiFi. Every time I load the app it takes 3 minutes of selecting different DVR shows just to get the app to update with new recordings. The app crashes numerous time when trying to watch a show. Constantly getting issue saying the DVR connection is lost. This is just annoying. All of this happens while using AT&T cell service. Pathetic. Every time I set up a recording through the app it never records on the DVR. I end up going right back to the DVR to set up a show to record anyway.

I set a program up to record, everything looked good, I even got the message that recording was set. Came home to watch and guess what - nowhere to be found. Plus constant disconnects make live streaming unpleasant. Being a former Dish customer, this app is much worse. And I thought theirs was bad.
yosinamandyan's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/28/18 12:30 AM
I changed service from Cox to ATT/Direct TV and I have to say that you get what you pay for. For the past 3 days, all I want to do is use my phone to send what I want to the TV but that most basic function keeps errorring out. The actual service is decent, but this app is crap. Poor HBO/Stars since I will have to cancel subscription since this app dropped the ball.
spllbnd2's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/28/18 11:32 AM
This could be a five star app if there were not so many problems. Been watching both live tv as well as my DVR recordings on my phone and up until recently everything seemed okay. Yes I would receive error messages every so often just as others have mentioned. But just recently I found that while watching my DVR recording the shows stops playing as though I paused the show, even though I didn’t. So I hit play and starts going okay. Then I try that oh so great 30 second skip for the commercials and it is flakey at best when I try and fast forward. It sometimes goes and other times it just gives a long......... pause. In this day and age we live in where peeps are using their phones for almost everything apps need to be 100% BEFORE being released. Free or fee does not matter, get them working before you release them. Cheers
Todd167's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/28/18 11:09 PM
First it says “there is a problem connecting to the server “. Then it tries to have you connect to the App Store to get the uverse tv app (I don’t have uverse). Then if you Go back to the app and try to login it will say “oops you’ve entered an incorrect character”. What does that even mean, I’m not using a semicolon or anything but letters and numbers. I have two friends that have had direct tv for months and still can’t get the app to allow them to login. I finally registered my account and then it asks me to login into the app, what do you know it won’t login with the username and password I had just created. Fix it!

I’d like the access back for the service I pay for. #frustrated

This app is very convenient and works well. I’ve had none of the problems that others are talking about. However I do believe that having relevant devices and connectivity are important. The only reason I gave it 4/5 stars is because of the amount of adds you must watch. This includes shows that are recorded to your DVR when at home. The main reason I invested in the DVR and subscription, was to be able to skip horrid commercials. Other than this the app is definitely worth the download, it does come in handy. The mobile remote is great feature.

PilloBarna's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/26/18 8:21 PM
Let’s just say that this is one of the worst apps when it comes to managing and watching tv. NO ONE in directv has taken the time to consider what is important, and even worst, NO ONE has thought about what options do make sense and which ones do not. The only well planned aspect of this apps are the multiple popups with messages letting the user know that directv has run into some problems and live streaming is unavailable, or the messae telling u that the channel you were watching a second ago in your phone all the sudden is not included in your package for bo good reason, or that you need to be connected to the same network as your receiver to watch a specific channel or your DVR content, or even the one asking you if you love the app... directv!!! YOU ROCK AT POPUPS!! The million dollar question is: who wants to watch his DVR content or stream a channel in his phone while being at home?? I have a flat device called TV at home, and I normally watch tv while doing other things in my phone!! So it is ABSURD that my only option to watch some channels, or to stream my DVR content is from home where my network and my receiver reside. Furthermore, the interface is complex... and option for my phone, and another option for my TV that do the same thing... scrolling in time in the guide is tedious... always having to scroll down the channels over and over after I go 30 minutes forward in time. It makes me want to convince myself that the show I want to find is not that good anymore. Well... you get the idea. This app should be retired. Directv, please go to the dishnetwork app and see what they are doing! You can stream your dvr from anywhere in the planet, and there are few options that are meaningful, but most important, well places in a menu that makes sense. Finally, please get your s*#%t together. If I am watching a channel on my phone, and I receive a call, you cannot tell me that is not included in my package after I hung up and I want to keep on watching the same show. IT IS RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!

A season that has just ended (in this case ‘Mom’ when recorded from app or Directv main receiver shows to play each episode will cost $2.99 that does not match the service or the ad of if you miss a show go to on demand and watch it. “It is your TV watch it your way”.....

djallits's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/22/18 7:43 PM
I am using version 5.9.005 which was released on May 31, 2018. The purpose for the relase was Bug fixes and stability enhancements. The reality is this release completly broke the app. Once the user authenticates against their att.net account, they are presented with a modal error titled System Error. Looks like there is a problem connecting to the server. I can consistently replicate this issue on two separate iPads and an iPhone. It has been 22 days now and still no fix. My issue is that there are much smaller companies and individuals that build apps that provide better service and support. So when you see a company the size of AT&T, with their obscene amount of resources, I cannot understand how they did not have an immediate patch release available within 24 hours. Apparently AT&T doesn't care about their DirecTV customers, even though they are trying to get everyone from uVerse over to the satellite service. The thought has occurred to me that since AT&T has had several marketing campaigns of bringing my TV with me, and since AT&T cannot provide me the means to do this reliably, if at all, then maybe I should be credited for the month. To make matters even worse, the button for App Support takes the user to a page that reads: The page you are trying to access was not found. Please check your URL for typos and try again.

This app makes me want to cancel direct tv altogether just because they are so terrible at making a simple app.
PN911's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/22/18 5:48 PM
I live the app for live streaming when I’m away from home — even at the office. But I’ve been kicked off saying my account is not available. The account I’ve had a decade or more. Suddenly stopped working. But, I can login to the website just fine. AND, as a result, it won’t allow me to stream through associates apps either. 😡😡😡

I had been using the app successfully on my Android tablet for awhile and then it wouldn’t work so I uninstalled and reinstalled it It would NOT register my dvr. The same dvr I’ve had for a year+. So back to my iphone app. Well it was working well for a good week. Now, since yesterday, I don’t see the download option while I’m in my house! I commute 4 hours/day and I like to watch my downloaded dvr shows during that time. So frustrating!!! Get it together DirecTV😡🤬. What am I paying you for???

So tired of this app spinning and saying “authorizing” or “loading”. Just having a really hard time getting past that even with uninstalling and re-installing. My internet connection and speed is great. Seems ever since AT&T took over DirectTV the whole Direct Tv system is sub-par. What ever update was done recently on this app has ruined it. Thinking twice about staying with DirectTV.

I have not been able to use the app at all. When I contact AT&T they tell me it’s the same log in & password as I had for U-Verse. I put that in and I get that there are errors or invalid characters. It’s an email address not quantum physics. AT&T can’t help. They told me they don’t know what to do. I give up.
barnesrev's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/21/18 5:39 AM
I used to have Dish and rarely had problems with their app and it was easy to use and you could watch TV live or watch Things you had recorded to your DVR. DirecTV app rarely works and is not intuitive and limited in your ability to access channels or DVR recordings. It still doesn’t work. Clumsy, slow, almost useless since it rarely initializes. Update: Nothing has changed except for the worse.

For the past three weeks the app will not work. Giving error unknown. After eight contacts with tech support, I’m still unable to use. No rep is able to give me an honest answer as to when it will be corrected. They won’t even credit my account either. It’s pretty frustrating since my family and I travel quite frequently and spend long hours on the road.. I hope the fix it soon as well as compensate... which I know won’t happen. Can’t even get through to corporate. I’m very unhappy
T.Hollie's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/21/18 3:40 AM
My first issue- you can’t view your bill ON the app (my main reason for using it) without being directed to your web browser; which in turn, makes you enter your password. I don’t know about anyone else, but I use Touch ID for everything. I haven’t known that password in months. Second- you can only watch while connected to HOME WiFi. Really annoying.

When it works, it runs smooth and has good video quality. But I’d say it works about 1/2 the time I try to use it. I often get error messages, can’t load data, no connection even with a strong signal detected by my phone. Doesn’t seem to matter if I’m using WiFi or data. Same issues.

Very frustrating to have an app that should be great (DirecTV and AT&T have money to put out a stellar product) but is so consistently poor. Every update makes the app less usable! Most times the app won’t even open, and when it DOES open it freezes after about a minute of viewing. Ridiculous!
TadanoGR-550XL's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/21/18 10:38 PM
This app stalls, buffers, and just plain shuts down. I can barely watch anything on this app no matter what service I have or my connection to that service. AT&T and this app will tell you that if you have mobile service with AT&T this app is data free. It is NOT data free. You better have a high gigabyte plan for this app.

ni€kn@M€'s Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/20/18 5:31 AM
I should be able to pick right up where I left off 5 minutes later. Instead, I have to refresh and wait, if I’m lucky it loads. Then if it loads, I have to hope I slide the time over to where I left off. In most cases though, I have to close out the app and restart. Then refresh then hope it loads to my DVR choices. Then if I’m super lucky, I guess the time of where I left off. Then when I’m unbelievably lucky, it will stream with a proper 1080p picture. Most of the time the app works as it should, but based on my experience with this app. I would probably air with caution recommending the service of DirectTv now or whatever it’s called. Cmon now, your owned by AT&T and they just bought Time Warner. Let’s get some bang for our bucks. This app should run as flawless as if I’m running the DVR on my genie box?!?!

Advertised as a TV viewing App but can’t watch TV when it constantly freezes and stops showing content. Will wait until my contract is out and look for another source. Pay way to much to not be able to use the added pleasure of watching content wherever you go. If you have a sports package and can’t view it then this App is useless.
danniboi_'s Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/20/18 2:54 AM
This app gives me nothing but problems. Specifically, with the DVR. Most of the time, the DVR on the app does not reflect the DVR in the house. It takes me 3 or 4 tries to get an accurate list of what I have recorded. It also takes forever to load up the show I actually want to watch and it crashes often. WiFi or data doesn’t matter. Also, hate how I can’t start from where I left off on a recording. I’ve had it happen once, but every other time my screen turns off if I have the show paused i have to start the frustrating process all over again. I came here to check for updates, but it looks like I have them all.

lPoca's Review of DirectvReviewed on 6/20/18 1:00 AM
To start, the app itself does not include your full TV package. For example you may have over 300+ channels, but only will have about 50, probably less. This does not make sense considering it’s the service you pay for and should be able to watch all the channels you have on your devices while not at home. Unlike Directv, Dish for example does provide all channels from your package on their apps, as well as Comcast. (I’ve had both.) This is definitely one of my most unliked features since switching to Directv. Another recent update that ruins the app over all even more is the fact that they have removed HDMI output from devices. (iPhone,iPad, etc.) So if you’re looking to stream from the app while traveling, at a friends house, or anywhere, look elsewhere. This is something I hope will be fixed sooner than later.

It is always a crap shoot when trying to use this app. Sometimes you can click on something bat says available to watch on your phone and it will play. Most of the time it won’t. Also, why can you not fast forward something that is on your dvr? You can do it while watching at home on a tv, why not on the phone? It’s already recorded, so this can be very frustrating. Also, can you please taylor the results to me on the home screen? I watch no more than 6 shows while I’m streaming, so the fact that I have to search for them every time is baffling. Overall the most frustrating part is when things that are live will not play, despite being on WiFi or cellular with a good connection. Please fix this.

I’ve had this app for a while now and just recently since I moved my internet to At&T and they combined all my counts together I haven’t been able to watch the app on any of my devices (the past 2 months). It keeps saying, “Error. Unknown error.” I’ve called repeatedly about this problem. First I was told to go back using my email. Then told to use my access ID. Then I was told that it shows I was logged in (when I know that I’m not). If I was logged in I would be having this problem. And every time I click ok when I get the error message, it opens my App Store and takes me to the U-Verse app. I don’t have that. If I’m supposed to be able to watch tv anywhere why can’t I.
