DIRECTV app reviews

  • Love this app! 4/5

    By directvdallas
    I would give 5 stars if the app didn’t kick you out of the current episode and then not allow you to fast forward to where it kicks you out.
  • It works with some glitches but last update killed Apple TV mirroring. 3/5

    By Oz63
    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.
  • DVR Streaming Doesn’t Work 1/5

    By Toddep23
    Please fix the dvr streaming feature. Currently not working. It says that it is already streaming to another mobile device even though i am not
  • Worst TV App Ever 1/5

    By Love it, but ...
    This app consistently fails to work smoothly. Most often, I receive an error that my receiver is already in use. First of all, I know for a fact that it isn't. Second of all, we have four receivers in our home, so more than one person should be able to use the app at the same time. I will be looking for alternatives to directv.
  • Can't air play from iPad pad to Apple TV 1/5

    By falconsoverpats
    I used to be able to watch my shows on my I pad onto my big tv screen using airplay..ever since the new iOS 11 update I haven't been able to do's lame and I can't project my shows onto the big screen!! It says disable screen recording when I already disabled still didn't work ..why bother using the app now..
  • Receiver 4/5

    By Gtffjh
    My receiver and phone will not sync so I can not watch shows on my DVR.
  • Broken 2/5

    By Sissymeow
    This app is very broken, especially the DVR function. I can barely stream my shows. It’s slow, freezes constantly, the skip button has major lag, recorded shows won’t appear until I click around several times, and downloading the shows to the phone doesn’t solve this last problem. Directv needs a major rehaul of their DVR functionality in the app.
  • Latest update is just crap 1/5

    By Shanmomof5
    This app just keeps getting worse. Keeps telling my local channels are being used by another receiver. No one is ever on it by me. It’s just a crappy app.
  • Rubbish! 1/5

    By Cubsfan17mg
    Can no longer stream live programming via IPad lightning bolt connector to my tv. Well done directv.
  • Volume on iphone6+ 3/5

    By Ninaaah_Ross
    I have to turn the volume all the way up just to hear it a little bit. perhaps a volume settings?.
  • Never works 1/5

    By blueciara
    This app never works for the live streaming. I don’t understand why and its completely annoying!
  • Can’t login 5/5

    By KN2346
    DirecTV app no longer working. Never had problems before but now when I put my login and password and it says I am inputting an invalid character And won’t allow me to sign in. I have not changed my login or password from when it was working. Please fix!
  • So much potential... so little performance 1/5

    By Speedaddy
    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.
  • Smh 1/5

    By Godzilla Jo Jo Jo
    Can’t log in the app anymore. No matter what I do it won’t recognize my user I.D. or password
  • PLEASE !! 5/5

    By JonyD24
  • Constant Sign in Error 3/5

    By Couch Potato Onthego
    I have had and have loved using this app. I don't know what happened in the last month but it keeps locking me out. I have reset my password 4 times in the last month.
  • Have a back up app to use 3/5

    By Jithor
    I travel a lot for work. This app works some of the time. The main problem I have had is if I watch the Directv app while flying the app crashes. I’ve also tried not using the app while flying and only using it after I land and have had the same issue. Do yourself a favor go buy a slingbox. You can hook it up to your Directv dvr. The slingbox does use data but only use it as a backup if the Directv app doesn’t work. As we all know most hotels have WiFi now so use the slingbox app over the hotels WiFi.
  • Streaming to Apple TV not working 1/5

    By Joanne3817
    I don’t know if this app needs an update but I used to be able to stream directv to my Apple TV from my phone but now with the new iOS update it doesn’t work. Error message keeps saying I need to turn off screen recording but it’s already off. The link for reporting an issue to the developer doesn’t work either. Please fix.
  • How do I get English Wwe 5/5

    By jsheets51904
    I watch Wwe and it is in Spanish when I don’t even speak it
  • Direct TV 5/5

    By I'm in the car
    I love Direct TV for the Sunday Ticket
  • Disagree with negative reviews! 5/5

    By JDLEE3883
    So I was reading the reviews about the app. I’ve had the app for quite a while now and I’ve never had an issue with it. I’m wondering if those of you that had a negative review has something going on with your provider or phone rather than the app itself. The only thing I wish it would do is update The programs listed so that you had more options regularly And more “Live TV” networks to watch! And Definitely be able to watch all seasons and all favorite shows for the “watch on iPhone” option! Other than that it has worked perfectly for me and I have the same app as everyone else
  • So so 3/5

    By Lucy_B1384
    I love watching live TV on my iPad, but occasionally the sound will cut out either for a few seconds or a few minutes. I then have to close out of live stream to get it working again....other than that, the app is great and makes catching shows on the go easy!
  • Please Don’t Rain on My Show 2/5

    By Linn2nd
    Every time there is rain (even without a storm), I lose my satellite signal. It always happens during a show I really have an interest in. Frustrating!
  • Decent 1/5

    By Walkertodd21
    Was working great until the new update now it won't let me download my shows to the app so I can watch later.
  • It will change your life 5/5

    By c9Yuriar
    DIRECTV is the best! They beat all competitors. Not only that this promotion they offer with AT&T where you can watch movies for free because of the unlimited data plan is a great offer
  • What happened to your on demand shows 2/5

    By shannondrowe
    with your recent update thanks of been messed up for the on-demand shows. I am now subjected to tons of ads that run consecutively for the on demand shows. So I watch the show for 10 to 15 minutes and then I’m forced to listen and watch six ads every time there’s a commercial break, this is more ads than what is on TV. you used to only show 2 to 3 ads which was ok now you’re ruining my evening walk because I’m listening and watching more add TV show!
  • Disappointing 1/5

    By Angela8446
    Haven’t been able to access the app since last update
  • Great Service and Great Options 5/5

    By Musicalatino777
    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.
  • Lot of room for improvement 1/5

    By Nik pen
    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?
  • Awesome app 5/5

    By Classic Horror Siren
    I love my Direct TV app. I can go anywhere and watch all my TV shows live. It’s soo convenient.
  • No steps forward, two steps back 1/5

    By jbstcyr
    Got a new version the other day. I haven’t noticed any new functionality, but it now forgets the All Channels/My Channels and the Guide/My Favorites selections for the Guide.
  • AT&T/ DirecTV App 5/5

    By uiowamadeline
    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.
  • AT&T is back to acquiring a business dynasty. 2/5

    By Suzankay
    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!
  • Bad connection 1/5

    By Desiree_bender
    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.
  • Tv anywhere!! 5/5

    By Angry app viewer
    I’m loving this new version for direct tv on the go so far it’s worked everywhere I’ve tried it 👍🏻
  • Madam secretary 1/5

    By Meri in Chicago
    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?
  • Update again please! 3/5

    By a_rod2432
    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!
  • I almost canceled Direct TV 5/5

    By morandifam
    Awesome. This kept me as a subscriber
  • Great Content But Bugs Ruin It 3/5

    By GatorHater44
    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.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Soccer1987
    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.
  • Update issues 1/5

    By Joyfulgrace
    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.
  • Thank you 5/5

    By Sethrow81
    How did you have a idea to make this app Thank You
  • You need to fix your app 2/5

  • 5 star 5/5

    By tinac0420
    This app is so amazing! Without it I wouldn’t be able to watch my fav irate shot!
  • Commercials after commercials 2/5

    By Fordman1
    I pay a monthly fee to watch this program, and on my iPad they have now inserted 149 seconds of commercials after commercials! Very poor Direct Tv.
  • DirecTV app 1/5

    By War51Eagle
    Good app to watch some shows on! I use it a lot 👍🏿 Need to add local channels back plus it shutting down!!! Need to fix bugs
  • Last Update Broke The App 1/5

    By Milesramstein
    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!!
  • Terrible 1/5

    By ChappyJ7112
    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.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Whydoineedthis2015
    Wonderful app!!!! Just wish the trees in my neighborhood were shorter to get the dish.
  • Awful! 1/5

    By jeffprice74
    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.
