Why cant this app mirror the iPad version which is great    Pretty worthless
Streams shows with no problems                Great
Enough said Use the data Keep the customerend user at the enter if your design and outcomes    App matches customer service
When I do get a show to load its fine But for some reason the download time quality and stream of the ads ruins this app I already pay for the servicemust I sit through 4 blocks of 6 commercials that crash my device       Ads streaming is awful
The service has some good features but the guide and search features are cumbersome and the worst is when I turn on my tv and I get Too Many Active Locations Im paying for all my set tops but the 4 occupants in my home are unable to use them at the same time Unacceptable       Confusing menus Limited simultaneous play
Since the update this app isnt working on my phone    NOT WORKING
Horrible Never even opened All it does is spin I had to give it atleast 1 star so I could review it Lame    Negative stars
I been using it for two year to record watch and check the guide Always helpful if you are out the home and you wanna recored a show             Simply the best Hope ATT will not damage it
Just got the service and this seems to work I see some of the bug issues as others have listed hoping it gets fixed          Its new to me
Good                Good
Keeps crashing almost never responds Cant even log in    Terrible
Bad usability and buggy execution that left me confused and angry By trying to do so much this app ends up being a lot of work with little payoff While I understand the complexities around rights and devices but this app over complicates to the point of dysfunction Not a good move for Direct TV    Wasted opportunity
This app no longer works to set up recordings When you try to look up a program the app locks up Used to work about 6 updates ago    Bad updates
Everything I wanted                Great app
You kick me out every time I write something big waste of my time    Any review
Really nice app that allows easy searching and watching of shows                Really well done
Fix the sports listings please When you search for an event it returns the listing but when you select it you get the wrong game    Deserves zero stars
Love having this option on my phone Always there for me when I remember that I forgot to set record at home                Great app
When a new ap is upgraded it is supposed to function better Trying to get to the guide to record programming at home is now considerably worse Need to include a quick guide access when you first open the ap    Not an upgrade
Duplicated local HD channels in Denver in the app and no way to hide duplicates Fix the app    Duplicated local HD channels in Denver
You can paste into the password field againNow please just let me stream anywhere not just on my home network Comcast does it          At last
Tried to install this on my iPhone and it just hangs up It put an icon on my phoneit just continually says loading It wont let me delete the icon Beware    Crappy app
Seems to get worse and worse Now requires ones receiver to be connected to a wireless network whereas previously that was not needed to set programs to record I havent seen much point in running their hot little wifi connector that drains power 247 Now I guess I have to rethink it Or just delete this app and get on with my life    DirecTV
This app is very buggy and limited    A very limited app
Most shows are not available to stream on your iPad or iPhone When shows are available to stream I lose picture and audio sometimes The search function is useless as they took away the organized channel search with the new update Looking forward to ditching satcable very soon    Searching is terrible
This app only works while Im at home using wifi also where I have my home televisions Whats the point This doesnt work away from home This app isnt that good Direct TV is over priced anyway    Over rated
I love this app never fails me when i cant be there to watch my shows best app on my phone                Best
Most of the channels dont even work Extra ads all over the place No local broadcast    Ew
Remote works again Please bring back the shows in the guide          Better
When I need to log in and set something to record away from home Tells me account not activeWhen at home and try stream tells me need to be on the same networkAnd of course I am Wish it was all that they say it is       Good but needs to be better
Every since ATT bought DIRECTV the sports listings are incorrect Now you can no longer get the correct event to record remotely Please fix this bug    Bug with sporting events
For those who dont update our iOS every month we are subjected to not being able to use apps we actually pay for monthly such as directv Awesome    Requires iOS 8 or higher
So far I havent had any issues with this app It works well for me                Great app
Ok for viewing but dont expect to be able to do anything related to your account eg check your balance or payment due date make a payment etc    Not for account management
This app does not work It repeatedly freezes when trying to control the receiver I had to close the app completely and reload it to enter a channel It froze up again following that entry    Locks Up
The concept of this app is good Would have merited 5 stars if it actually worked as expected Takes too long to initialize Once streaming live feed cuts off every couple of minutes with just the audio on saying video portion of the stream wont work because of low bandwidth I have a 20 Mbps home internet connection better or as good as most normal people have I had time warner cable before directv and I remember a more consistent and fluid experience       Good when it works Very inconsistent
After months of issues I had gotten my app to recognize it was actually on my home network One touch of the update button and now the app no longer recognizes Im on the same wifi Anyone else have this issue    Update Messed up Connection
I have found this app to be unreliable and thus very frustrating I have been unable to complete a TV series Some episodes are not available and others give an error message stating part or all didnt record Its very frustrating not to be able to watch all episodes of a series FIX THIS APP please    FRUSTRATING
No problems Maybe these other folks have bad internet or poor phone service                Works great
Needs better googlelike free text search Couldnt even find Monday Night Football    Worthless free text search
So far very good                Gaggy58
First you force me to upgrade to newest buggy app Then your app keeps telling me I havent put a user name in the login page when it is there Why do I have to reenter my login info every time I update appDoes anyone test these updates before you release them Now app is useless to me since I cant login Brilliant It was working fine before    Bad
When ATT takes over any business its going to be full of problems and fully disappointing    ATT strikes AGAIN
The app is terrible It freezes and there is no local channels at all I have the NFL Sunday Ticket and cant even watch that on the app Some channels dont work at all Just a major disappointment Perhaps a little more effort should have been put into the project but overall isnt good    Please
After freezing repeatedly during a loooong initialization the app asks me to rate it if Im enjoying it Funny Read the other posts Errors Bugs Doesnt work Surprising that a huge company cant hire a competent app developer    Frustrating
I cannot believe there was an update to the app and they did not fix the sports events Any time you search for a game and click on that game it shows up as a completely different game Its completely unusable I cannot schedule any game remotely    Fix the Sports Events
It is great I can go back to see shows I have missed and enjoy on my phone or TV anytime get it if you dont have get it Use me as a referral I will get you a monthly discount on your monthly bill                My Direct TV
Im sure apps dont perform the same for everyone but Ive had no problems with this one On my last vacation it was as if I could take my DirecTV programming with me I do enjoy this app along with TCM and Watch ESPN now offered by DirecTV                Live it
Can not connect widget it keeps telling me my receivers arent connected to the Internet when in fact they are Terrible app       Widget is terrible
If this app was I house I would say tear it down and rebuild it Far from user friendly Very limited as for what you can actually watch Crashes Ages behind other cable providers Its a shame really    Horrible app
