  • After update, app won't load 1/5

    By jgc70
    The app has always been flaky but after the uodate, it won't even load on my phone. It sits an initializing and never goes any further. Maybe AT&T did it on purpose so people won't stream on their phone.
  • Great 4/5

    By JSilva1689

    Nuff said
  • Great app 5/5

    By Jpistal
    I got unlimited date so it's great for me. If I'm ever bored I just watch Things on my phone like if I would be at home. Would be better if you could WATCH EVERYTHING that you watch on your T.V. On your phone. But at least it's free.
  • Over priced service and a shi**y app to boot. 1/5

    By Mad American 74
    Thought with this newest update app might actually work like it should,well I guess like me you were still disappointed,still kicks out while watching,screen freezes but if your lucky you can still hear the sound,I could go on but if you have this app you already know how shi**y it is,you would think with the $180+ (thats about what I spend)we spend a month on services they could pull their thumbs out of the asses and make this app actually work,thank you once again for the monthly screw job on pricing and service and yes If I had better options in my area I would leave DIRECTV.
  • Don't dwell on the stupid 1 star reviews 5/5

    By Benner5
    This app has saved me on NUMEROUS occasions. Being able to watch my DIRECTV channels on the go is a beautiful thing. I use it every day.
  • Capt. 5/5

    By EdistoIsland2
    Get app. Downloaded on iPhone and great reception both in-house & out-. Highly recommended.
  • Works awesome 4/5

    By Duckie8278
    Easy to use. Works awesome. Love it
  • Terrible since update 1/5

    By MDowdle
    All I get is a black screen with the DirectTV logo every time I try to login. Terrible since the update. For as much as I pay for DirectTV and as much as their marketing department is pushing this watch anywhere feature...especially during March Madness, this ought to work flawlessly. Please fix now!!!
  • Adjustments Needed 1/5

    By La nena del negro <3
    I recently bought the tv adapter so I could watch direct tv from my iPhone to my tv and it's just not working along with the downloaded items! Needs updating ASAP!
  • Love it on my phone 5/5

    By Aaron Cowans
    Good Deal.
  • Good job! 1/5

    By Zerbalurb
    If you're mission was "let's destroy this app" then you succeeded. Uninstalling.
  • Worthless 1/5

    By Anajdjfisodjc
    Attempting to stream major event from a major channel (NCAA tourney), and the program is nowhere to be found. Funny part is during the program there was a commercial stating to "stream the NCAA games from anywhere"... I will find another service provide if vast improvements are not made in the short term (PS: apparently nicknames cannot repeat)
  • No locals 3/5

    By Edgar Marentes
    No local channels on lte
  • 0 stars if possible 1/5

    By Donnyhateme
    Just downloaded this app and it's complete crap. Direct TV should pay people to use this useless app. Meanwhile my coworker right next to me streams Dish seamlessly!
  • wd4hmr 5/5

    By wd4hmr
    Great app, I am new to Direct TV but love it so far!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By JLtink
    Just switched from Comcast only yesterday and best decision ever. The set up took some time however-he made sure everything worked properly and knew every answer to every question asked. The app makes it more enjoyable! Thank you DIRECTV!
  • Awesomeness 5/5

    By Mike Mike R
    Love it just know it will eat up data like a monster!! I used 43GB of data this month LOL !!!
  • Useless, totally useless. 1/5

    By Ukwildcatfan1959
    If I could give this app a zero star, I would, because it is absolutely useless. You may as well download each network's app, because at least you can watch programming from apps such as CNN, HBO, etc. This app is pitiful! Worst app ever as you can't use it ever for what you need it for!!!
  • Torture! Slow and Unreliable 1/5

    By OldeJim
    Update 3/26/17 Now the media content apps (HGTV, NBS Sports...) cannot login using DIRECTV as the provider. Their chat support app fails to give the user a keyboard. The incompetence and apathy at AT&T and DIRECTV is overwhelming! Update 3/2117 3 years later and they still hate their users! They updated their iPhone app so that it now does nothing. No kidding, nothing! Enter the credentials, and I get the Directv logo, a hot phone with and no battery after 30 minutes. $130 a month for this? By the way, their downloaded content viewer is still terrible. Original This app is kind of an afterthought. Recording a show requires a lot of patience. Usually 2 or more tries of 5 minutes each. Trying to use the playlist "feature" is absolute torture. Playing a downloaded show will make you cry! They have removed the fast forward and reverse controls in favor of a linear scrubbing control that is unresponsive and disappears after 5 seconds. After 3 tries at scrubbing, the app freezes. What have we as DirecTV's customers done to make them hate us so much?
  • Won't download 1/5

    By Ccdore
    Worked great the first 3 days and now it will not even load. When you open the app it shows initializing, logging in, and then the screen goes black. Deleted this app 10 times and redownloaded it, and will not open. Really disappointing.
  • Garbage 2/5

    By Skrugz11
    Has anyone ever tested this app. Do you realize how terrible it is? 10 years behind. Try finding a show far less find out what channel or what time it comes on.
  • Won't run 1/5

    By Lkjgfdsettgh
    Will not run after "update"
  • Horrible 1/5

    By jason's iphone6
    Will not let me logIn.
  • Love Direct TV!!! 5/5

    By JN@76
    I've had Direct Tv for over 10 years and I love everything about them! The Channels, services and their customer service every time I have an issue. I Would not give them up for nothing in the world! They are worth every dime i spend with them! Keep up the good work guys!! Try to get what I get with other providers and I can guarantee you will be paying an arm and a leg.
  • Love it 5/5

  • Frustrated!!!! 1/5

    By misstiff1118
    Can't even get to the tv listings once I log in. It goes to black screen that says DIRECTV. It's super frustrating & annoying & it's been like this for months. So over this crap!!!
  • Tv 5/5

    By Jumpass
    Great app
  • This app is useless 1/5

    By Devon Barnhart
    I had no issues with this app in the past, until the update. I've always had direct tv and use this app for the kids while we are in the truck. After I updated the app a couple weeks ago I can not get it to load anything past the log in screen.
  • Complete dud 1/5

    By CrazyJetty
    App will not open. Completely unusable.
  • Great App 4/5

    By lol ear
    Convenient app. Easily manage recordings from anywhere. No more missed shows. Continuous improvement gives this 4 stars. Get the downloads and remote viewing worked out and it will be a solid 5 stars.
  • Worst app you have to have to use the product! 1/5

    By UmmmWhatDidUSay?
    It is the worst app on iPhone. You have to have the app if you want to use Directv. It is almost scizophrenic in its usage. Icons don't work, the app will just go dark, you can't maneuver through the app. You certainly can't call ATT or Direct because they have a phone number for each different problem you have.
  • Broken - Please Fix! 1/5

    By NYtoLV
    Live tv is pretty much broken. This app is one of the few things keeping me with you and not with a fire stick so fix it!

  • Mr. 5/5

    By Marvin marb1
    Great app.
  • Guide freezes every time 2/5

    By Leah McD
    Had to reinstall the app to not have it freeze on the guide every single time. Seems this app doesn't work as well after the most recent update.
  • Anyplace, anytime 5/5

    By Sea coaster
    I love Direct TV. When traveling, I can use the hot spot on my mobile phone to watch Direct TV on my smart TV that does not have a Internet or television connection.
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Vin BioDiesel
    Since att bought Directv this app is basically worthless.

    By DelphiStrawberryService

  • No Chromecast? 1/5
