DIRECTV app reviews

  • A lot of whining 5/5

    By The Champ iz Here
    People have the right to express their opinion about censorship of One America News, but DIRECTV is a business and right wing fake news is the death knell of a free society. Good for DIRECTV for refusing to promote FAKE NEWS!
  • The last update made the service useless 1/5

    By Ravderic
    After last update I can no longer watch when connected via hdmi to tv from iPhone. Stuttering picture and no sound. I've restarted the app and deleted and reinstalled still doesn'work. Please fix!!!!
  • Pls sell to DISH 1/5

    By Fdwarren
    Directv USED TO BE excellent and very customer oriented. Since AT&T bought them, service, technology, and customer care have gone in the toilet. If I had not installed a $2000 Directv satellite antenna on my RV, I would throw away the AT&T gear and switch to DISH. When I first switched to Directv 33 years ago, I have been a loyal customer, but when AT&T took over, their priority for Directv went to zero, as did my love of Directv. Even their new Directv app is marginal at best.
  • DIRECTV App Is a Disaster 1/5

    I am about to cancel my DIRECTV subscription. The new app is terrible with major problems. PRIME is dramatically better.

    By gramma5959
    Can’t set reminders that your show is about to start. Basic channel choices are poor. It’s just not as good as comcast, it’s true what they say you get what you pay for.
  • Missing Programs 4/5

    By OkieCher
    While my husband watches his favorites, in our living room, I’m left with my tablet. That being said, I would like to have access to my full programming I pay for. Feeling left out!
  • Access to my paid for content not working 1/5

    By Kengrb
    Cannot watch channels I subscribe to or contents on my DVR in my own house
  • Direct Tv app 5/5

    By #Danielsteam
    I really like the fact that l can watch television from my phone just as l do at home.
  • Bring back the old app 1/5

    By kenkensh
    This app is horrible. What actually happened to he old app. I don’t understand how this app works, I can’t get any of my subscription on this app
  • Keeps switching back to live tv 1/5

    By AP$65
    This app is horrible! When streaming it continually wants to go to live TV and you have 10 seconds to stop it. Few seconds later it does it again, and again and again! Whoever designed this app should be fired!
  • Just cut the Cable. 1/5

    By Brayden_love_baller
    Absolutely awful. DirectTV is constantly screwing up the app so that I can’t watch my shows from my phone when I’m away. Beyond that, it won’t let me record it either. Stop paying big $ and just get Hulu or YouTube TV.
  • Wide Selection 5/5

    By Nashfast
    Easy to navigate to your favorite broadcasts
  • They will trick from your money 1/5

    By gooaaal!!!
    They say it’s a subscription you can cancel anytime but now when I try to cancel I have to call a representative I can’t just cancel on the app or website. Worse when I call in they’re not open so now I have to call back later or lose $50.
  • Flawed 1/5

    By Edgy01
    While Direct TV has added several useful functions, it’s totally unreliable. At arbitrary times it shuts down and then claims you don’t have that channel in your list to view. If you open the former app it opens right up. Too many flaws and glitches. If you’re going to buy a company, ATT, put some money into IT. Waste of time calling ATT—they’re unwilling to spend the money on domestic telephone assistance, but farm it out to the third world, where their command of the English department language is poor. Spend the money.
  • Can’t Use the app to watch ANYTHING 1/5

    By GandolphJames
    Error message says “This channel is not included in your package. This is a LIE. I pay a lot of money for this so called service. These channels are in my package. I pay for them, but I can’t watch them. It just gets worse and worse. AT&T developers continuously remove functionality from the app. I keep paying more and getting less. I just want to watch my DVR recordings on my iPad. I had been doing this for years. Now my recordings have an icon that indicates the functionality has been removed. I am angry. I received a useless response from the developer. My response to them is I know how to use your app. You DO NOT allow me to watch everything on my DVR. Only a few shows. You also removed the download option. I used this to watch my show when I am camping off grid. Now I can’t do that either. There is no longer any reason for me to pay $150 a month for DIRECTV.
  • Absurdly glitchy for the price 1/5

    By The Conquer Worry Show
    Ruins football Saturdays if you try and watch multiple games.
  • Updates 2/5

    By i1putt
    Regularly, my app won’t update even though I am connected to my home Wi-Fi that the Eve is also connected to. If I uninstall and reinstall the app it is fine. Please fix this.
  • Unamerican 1/5

    By MAGA!!!!!!
    Why would a TV provider sensor one American news This is America where we get to make our decisions not the government not companies but we the people this is why this will be the downfall of America. We are not China. We are America.
  • App does not work on TV 1/5

    By 1726473918273$37;!,&/92
    The streaming app does not work on your TV, you can’t stream from your phone to your TV if you were hoping to do that.
  • The worst streaming App!! 1/5

    By Time to get Comcast
    App is buggy and freezes up every 10 minutes like it’s on a timer. That’s when it’s actually working. The app will be down and won’t be able to login for weeks at a time. Direct TV tech support is like 🤷‍♂️ Id be willing to bet the support staff for the app only works on it as a hobby. Awful experience don’t download.
  • Last 3 versions/bug fixes are terrible. 1/5

    By USBA Gold
    I have had DIRECTV for 30+ years and can say without reservation that this latest version is the worst app I have ever used. I have deleted it repeatedly and try to use the older version that I left installed. Unfortunately, Big Brother Apple thinks they know better and force me to visit their App Store to download the latest crappy version. Verdict - AT&T and Apple may have been good once but no longer!
  • Thank you 3/5

    By Lawman541
    Thank God they censored that fake news from One America. Most people are smart enough to know the difference, the others could care less about the truth or facts. In an alternate reality anything you wish is true.
  • Direct tv review 2/5

    The reason for 2 stars is reflection of the customer service received after signing up with AT&T. We have Never had a Direct Tv representative contacted us at all for, set up, or how it works, or troubleshooting.
  • Junk 1/5

    By icanhearjustfine
    Slow, glitchy, poorly designed, low quality picture application. Worst TV streaming app on the market.
  • Sound does not work when I cast 1/5

    By Big Daddy Beedles
  • Can’t log in 1/5

    By Marrigs
    It didn’t recognize my ID or password. I rest both, and it still doesn’t recognize me. And it changed the ID and password to my MyATT app.
  • New app does not work / now 5/5

    By Quiltendeb
    Downloaded new app and will not work on iPhone or iPad````` Later I turned everything on and off and the app worked.
  • Connectivity issues and other frustrations 2/5

    By CMCxxx
    Old app let you connect to receiver with IP address. New app appears to have no support for connecting when receiver is on a different subnet I have the option to auto-play video turned off, but if you breathe on the app wrong, video starts and is slow to respond to clicks to stop it When I view the guide initially, it is sorted numerically, but always starts with A&E as the first selected channel (#265) instead of the local broadcast station (#2)
  • No reason to download app 1/5

    By steve the suit man
    This could be the worst app I’ve used. I can’t even set up a recording. I always get the message: “Something went wrong.” Never an explanation, & I’ve been trying for a few months now & the bug hasn’t been fixed - very frustrating. I also experience the all the bugs stated in other reviews. I’m surprised that a media/technology company would have rolled out such a substandard app. But nonetheless, seems we as subscribers must deal with it while paying our monthly subscription fee.
  • Since last update will only open to blank screen. Not been able to do ANYTHING 1/5

    By Xx_Fire_Dragon_xX
    Poor update - either phone or app - but it’s the ONLy app behaving this way.
  • What happened 2/5

    By 1proudpop
    The app will no longer open on iPhone12 pro on cellular. All troubleshooting done on this end. Obvious permissions granted. Unlimited data… Another issue is the stream is always blurry during shows and around 10-10:30pm eastern it completely crashes or gets stuck loading so everything is unwatchable. $80+ a month and it hardly works anymore. Can we have some updates or fixes to these issues? “When the network is busy…” is a bogus excuse because I’m not sharing my internet and have a gigabit connection. Hardly anything using the wifi so let’s get it together Direct Tv.
  • Version Update Problems 1/5

    By YayorNay
    The new app isn’t available for the actual APPLE TV- only the IPhone version has the update. Apple TV is still stuck on 4.035.
  • New app is crap 1/5

    By Jgsjarz
    The new app that I just downloaded is crap. I used to be able to watch my recorded (on DVR) shows on my iPad using the old app. I just downloaded the new app and I can’t do that anymore. If you still have your old app, keep it as long as you can.
  • Still can’t download dvr content as advertised. 1/5

    By TimeToCuttheCord
    Still limited functionality compared to Netflix, Amazon, Disney, etc. DIRECTV advertises that you can take your DVR content with you, you can’t. I don’t need another screen, I need portable content when internet isn’t available. Just another reason to cut the cord. Response to developer’s unsatisfactory explanation: I AM UNABLE TO DOWNLOAD MY RECORDED DVR CONTENT TO MY IPAD AND THEN WATCH LATER WHEN I AM OFFLINE. THIS IS WHAT DIRECTV HAS ADVERTISED FOR YEARS. DOWNLOAD ABILITY DOES NOT EXIST WITHIN THIS APP AS ADVERTISED.
  • App malfunctions 1/5

    By xcrtsd
    Right in the middle of a Program on a channel that is part of my package I get a message that the channel is not part of my package. This happens most days. I’ve wasted a great deal of time on the phone with your support staff but with no fix. As a premium customer I am extremely unhappy.
  • Can’t log in 1/5

    By ickmule
    Useless app if you can’t log in. Keeps giving me an error message. Apple TV app works as intended, this iPhone app is useless.
  • I hate the new app 1/5

    By DDW_MT
    The old app was 100% better This app I cannot quickly advance from channel 100 to 500 I hate that there is no way to stop auto play
  • Recordings 2/5

    By terrischu
    App updated but still did not fix access to recordings.
  • Directv App failure 1/5

    By The Moor of Salamanca
    Why launch an app that’s not fully functional? The previous app worked successfully. This new directv app in Los Angeles doesn’t work for recording programs at all. The app doesn’t find nor recognize any of my three receivers. I called tech support after getting the runaround they finally admitted it. Directv is lucky I detest spectrum.
  • Never works 1/5

    By Vabyloodsteen
    This app is useless. It barely works!
  • Horrible customer service 1/5

    By Losethatweight
    My interaction with Directv is generally an hour or longer. In detail I try to explain my grievances but I find myself just repeating the same statement. The most basic issues have the most difficultly being resolved. I always dread having to speak to them about anything because it is never resolved at the end of the conversation
  • The new DIRECTV streaming app 1/5

    By aggravated with your app
    It keeps cutting out telling me that I don’t have the authorization to watch the channels maybe two or three times a day then all of a sudden it’ll come back on on its own the app is not reliable at all so I suggest if you update to the new app that you hang onto the old app and do not delete it because it still works fine it is more reliable than the new app
  • Doesn’t Work most of the time 1/5

    By hruss
    This is the worst app and it’s so inconvenient. I have to reset my password over and over. Therefore I’m unable to use this App. I had no trouble with the old App. I’m so tired of this.When am I going to be able to use this app on my phone it’s disgusting and I feel like I need to get some money back from DIRECTV because of the low performance of this app.
  • Quality 1/5

    By crkcrn03
    Not good update
  • Used to work fine…. 1/5

    By Bb3575
    When we first signed up for this service it worked great. Now Almost every time I open the app it makes me sign in again. Then it started going to the sign in screen while in the middle of a program I was watching. So frustrating! We have AT&T for cell, internet and this crappy DIRECTV stream. With all the issues we’re having with AT&T (Constantly having to re-enter passwords for EVERYTHING including my email, and my husband having to “reset” his password almost daily) we’re about ready to drop them completely and go with another service provider!
  • Crap 1/5

    By soontobecordcutter
    Well it is better than the old app, but that is not saying much. Still not very reliable. Stops playing content and says you don’t have that channel in you subscription for all channels. You would be better off signing up for a real streaming service than using this. Customer service is a joke also, I will be switching soon.
  • Really good app, but needs better Apple TV Up Next integration 5/5

    By DC-CA
    Since this version of the app is just for Apple TV, it should integrate with Up Next. When I watch a recorded show like the current season of Law and Order that I have set for series record, it should (either automatically or allow me to manually) add the show to Up Next. Some shows it seems to add but when I try to watch them I get the streamed No-commercial-skip version. Not good. Otherwise I really like the app.
  • New update doesn’t work on iPad Pro 2/5

    By ExSierra
    No track pad support.
  • New app keeps saying I don’t get a channel 4/5

    By mortis lj
    The new app does not have all my channels THAT I PAY FOR and it keeps crashing. I can be watching 360 on my iPad and it just quits saying I don’t have that channel in my package. Several minutes later I try it again and it works. Please fix this flaw. Very annoying. I pay way too much each month to have to put up with this.
