DIRECTV app reviews

  • TV APP no good 1/5

    By Bundoon
    I keep getting either an error or a message that I have no account. This app needs a work over! I may have to change providers just so I can watch TV once in a while on my iPad.
  • horrible (do not update) 1/5

    By maddyyato
    updated the app and it is telling me “whoops you missed a character” as i signed in correctly through safari .. ridiculous !!
  • Worst App in the history of all Apps 1/5

    By airlunar
    This should be criminal ever since DirecTv was purchased by ATT there is absolutely no integration of the technology or companies. I can’t log into the app, doesn’t recognize password, email, user ID. Can’t do anything even after changing everything calling (They don’t care and actually sourced out to another country so they don’t even seem to listen to the issue. If you want to watch TV like the 1990’s only on your TV Att/DirecTv is the way to go. If you want streaming, on the go access, or anything cutting edge and by cutting edge I mean 2010 technology this is not for you. Total waste of money time to cut the chord.
  • Worst App 1/5

    By Jb1263
    Since starting to use DIRECTV nearly 3 years ago, the DIRECTV app has been the worst app I’ve ever utilized, it does not sync automatically with devices, it is constantly freezing up when changing between channels, it needs restarted multiple times a week, I can only hope the updates make this app slightly bearable, if it wasn’t for the fact it was tied in with my mobile devices, it would’ve been gone a long time ago
  • TV 5/5

    By gbshu30
    Direct tv is the Best
  • App doesn’t work 1/5

    By jice0383
    If you are getting direct tv due to the convenience of having the download feature, please reconsider. Prior to the latest upgrade, it was slow and temperamental.. now it’s completely useless. Will Not connect to the dvr, even though everything else in the house works without issue
  • Zero stars as it doesn’t work. AT all. 1/5

    By Adfgleyiombv
    As in doesn’t work. At all. Prior to that it’s removed any conservative news stations.
  • DirectV 5/5

    By roaddog78
    Great app!!!
  • Deleted 1/5

    By AzLees
    If I could rate zero stars, I would.
  • Needs many improvements 1/5

    By rw063020
    I consistently have issues with this app that I do not experience with any other streaming app. Audio cuts out in the middle of a program. Message about an issue with wifi connection has lately started to come up every time I open the app. After selecting “Try Again” multiple times it finally opens. There are no issues with my WiFi (other apps work just fine). It is incredibly frustrating. FIX THE APP!
  • App won’t open 1/5

    By hdbeusnfbd
    Doesn’t work at all
  • Does not stream from my dvr like it says it should 1/5

    By BradBeeman
    This app is crap. Rhyming intended. It really needs rewritten into 2020 world. I’ve never gotten it to let me watch my DVR from my iPhone 11 Pro running iOS 13.latest. It seems to find DVR, then says it can’t find it to register my device. Though DVR connected to Internet. I think their DRM is set too strict. I’m on my home network. Also watching live TV is very buggy. Seems to be in their networking subroutines? I once had it display a prompt to enter the HR44 IP address, but can’t get back there now. Anyway, why shouldn’t I just punt them and go to YouTube TV, and have unlimited DVR that works, on all devices, and all the sports I could ever want? 🤔
  • Used to enjoy it. Then att took over. 3/5

    By Pyro658
    Since att has taken over customer service has been terrible. They’ve also let the app go now. There hasn’t been in update in a while and now the app opens and won’t connect asking to go offline. When it works it is great. The remote is nice and allows me to hide my receiver. It’s just frustrating at the moment. Hopefully we get this thing fixed. I haven’t used the app on my iPad in a while so I don’t know if that has the same issue as the iphone.
  • Don’t update 1/5

    By Timcollins345
    Latest app update broke it. Can’t connect.
  • Horrible app 1/5

    By Friend of A&G
    Don’t waist your time. This app will only make you mad. The app does not load anything. You can not contact support because the link does not work. You would think with the amount of money they charge they could make a decent app.
  • Update broke app 1/5

    By applefan0699
    All I get is can’t open app connect to internet and try again, when I have perfect internet
  • Full Access with Mobility... 5/5

    By Clippers302
    Nice app with some limitations, meaning some shows while on the go, are still limited to watch ( in home view only ) why give the Mobility’s and still restrict All Access to the App? We’re paying for the subscription, give the subscribers Full mobile access❗️
  • App not working at all 1/5

    By Ap197
    I attempted to get app support for the problem but there is no support so I am leaving a review. iPad app is not working at all and will only show an ad for HBO max. NO WAY TO CLOSE! Please fix all the bugs with the last update. It is unusable on phone or tablet.
  • App Cannot Open 1/5

    By BN642
    Error message I’m getting on newest update, telling me to check my network connection. Weird, not sure how I’d be writing this review and posting it on the Internet then.
  • Highly Frustrating 1/5

    By Kinyatah Haynes
    This application is the worst app I’ve ever downloaded. Some channels play , most don’t . My DVR show always cut off and I have to click back on them AT LEAST 5x to finish. I just can’t deal with Directv/ AT&T anymore .
  • Unknown Error 1/5

    By CM-TX
    Terrible... Used to work... not anymore
  • Buggy & Unstable. 2/5

    By Blackstream56
    Never quite sure if it will work. Latest "error” is I am streaming another device. Nope, and main DVR is off and not currently recording. All other mini are off. NFL ticket is the only reason we subscribe.
  • Loc Nguyen 558 Barber St 32958. paid in Full 4/5

    By Larry772sebastian
    I can not login to get an answer from directTV on paid account and still get bad credit and constant calls from oversea and hung off. These actions should stop before the lawsuits taking over. all investors should want the DirectTV doing well and get good connection again. Top ten networks for future.
  • Bad update 1/5

    By Pdragonfly40
    Won’t let me sign in. Error message. Password is correct as I can log in online.
  • Only works part of the time 1/5

    By Hkwjrwerwmew
    I’ve had problems with this app since downloading it last year. This latest update is terrible. The video freezes (when I can get it to play without an error message telling me to connect to the same network as my TV), I get error messages constantly, and I can only view about 2/3 of the channels I pay for. I use my iPhone in the house in rooms where we don’t have a TV. This is by far the buggiest app I use.
  • Errors 1/5

    By landbej
    I keep getting errors with this new update. Not a fan
  • Glitching 2/5

    By William Austin-White
    It’s very glitchy when trying to watch show that are saved on the DVR. Many shows won’t download at all.
  • Worst online tv app ever 1/5

    By Whynicknameneeded
    It should be zero star if there’s such an option. I really missed the time when I used spectrum before. It was so smooth compared with this piece of junk. The chance I was able to load this Directv app successfully on my iPhone is lower than tiny numbers. Usually it took me several rounds to restart my newest iPhone to hit one load to watch the game that I really wanted to watch. It’s so frustrating. BTW, the Directv app on my desktop never worked successfully.
  • Can’t watch what you pay for 2/5

    By Lupita J
    I don’t enjoy this app because I can’t watch anywhere like it says we would. Always gives a message that I can watch in till I am connected to my receiver which in hat case I’ll watch in my tv!!! I got app so I can watch when I am at work on my lunch but can’t.
  • New version totally broken 1/5

    By Miouhyyg
    Cannot connect toDVR with this version. Tried restarting the phone, remove and reinstall app - no results. Also failed on iPad
  • Too many bugs 1/5

    By Exme26
    The app is too unstable
  • App needs a total rebuild 1/5

    By Oldtreker
    This app has been getting worse instead of better. Takes forever to load, never remembers favorites and hangs up on “optimizing video “ most of the time. Maybe they should have a outside tech firm make it for them.
  • Needs an update 2/5

    By jhut107
    I like the app (on my iPad) but why can’t I use it with an adapter? I have a small TV in the kitchen and cannot use the app when plugged in the adapter for the TV....
  • Requesting authorization for other channels 2/5

    By Customer of Directv
    I’m trying to watch shows on my iPhone 11 and I keep getting the ‘Directv authorizing’ message and it stops halfway through load. I can hear the show but can not see the show.
  • App Non Functional 2/5

    By Safe touch security
    App is non functional on iPhone 11
  • No Sound 1/5

    By Awesomejellypancake
    Each time I use the app the sound starts for a few minutes then it stops. Sound won’t return. It also happens on my TV. This is constant and annoying. I pay for a service, it needs to be fixed.
  • Download your show to watch! What?! 1/5

    By colbster8
    Are you kidding me? Get with the times! You want me to delete apps on my device to free up room to download a show or movie I’ve already dvrd? Not happening. I had Dish for 15-20 years. I used their app and could just access the receiver and watch a recorded show. If I started it on my tv, I could pick it up on my iPad or iPhone. Not on the Direct app - I must start over or fast forward to get past what I had already watched. Wow!! Time to overhaul your app. It is archaic!! Plus when watching (if anything is available) half the time the fast forward is not available on my iPhone - WTH!!
  • Issue 1/5

    By rcw727
    I have had problems finding stations, loading, stream is just bad, I had spectrum,,,get what you pay for,, save$$$ can’t stream,, big disappointment,, I hope Direct can get it figured out soon
  • Needs a complete overhaul 1/5

    By MAS67
    When watching something from my DVR playlist the video stops playing constantly about every five minutes. Pretty worthless.
  • Won’t work 1/5

    By sara rebeka shams
    Horrible can’t watch every Chanel and can’t register my phone or iPad to dvr
  • WORST APP BY FAR!!!! 1/5

    By Chrissi;
    This has got to be the junkiest worthles carp of an app I have!!! The screen gets stuck in commercials, sometimes you can FF most of the time you can’t! OR screen is black and I can only hear it. And that’s after hitting the ’watch on iPhone’ 4 times!! They take FOREVER TO UPLOAD NEW CONTENT. What is the problem here!! Mars has been walked on by man & these ppl can’t get their own app to function AS IT SHOULD!!!! Plz fire the dumb fk over that department already. Get it together ppl!!!!

  • Great programming 5/5

    By scottray1
    I live in the country and I don’t know what I would do without Directv. We record all our favorite shows; absolutely love it!
  • One Star 1/5

    By Jenna51521
    Repeatedly shuts down & freezes. “Network Error” message always comes up, even though it will run after exiting & opening again. Frustrating app.

    By lpreiman
