DIRECTV app reviews

  • It’s kind of ok 2/5

    By Hapax43
    Seriously used to be a great app. Ever since they took away my ability to use a HDMI cable to connect my phone to my t.v. to stream to a bigger screen it’s really lost it usefulness. I can’t complain about it not working on my phone just wish work the way it did before.
  • It just needs apple airplay 3/5

    By jelly_QRW
    I use this app all the time to watch my shows and everything because I have a tight schedule every week and can’t watch some shows when they air on tv so I watch them on my phone but here’s the problem I have an hdmi to lightning connection for my tv and when I try to hook my phone up to the tv to use airplay only the adds show up on my tv and when the shows come on it says hdmi output is not supported so if airplay can be put on this app I would give it 5 stars no doubt but at this point it’s 3
  • CBS 1/5

  • Unknown error. 1/5

    By Steve OFallon
    I’ve tried this app several times over several months. Updated it. Removed it and reloaded it. Always the same thing. Unknown Error. Never even opens.
  • Thumbs down 2/5

    By dhnnand
    Doesnt always work when I’m away from home which is the entire point of having it. Dissatisfied and I actually work for the company.
  • Trash 1/5

    By lu1s0215
    I have sign in almost every time I open the app.its also always crashing wich I have to restart the app and log in again
  • App user error 1/5

    By wydligkbfjgdykcljfyi
    This app is not allowing me to gain access and log in although I am using the correct log in information. Through the TV Provider on my smartphone it claims to be logged in. Then when I try to access the app version it claims I am not logged in.
  • Bad App 1/5

    By GH79
    This app keeps deleting my ID and password and requiring me to put in another. Right now it does not work.
  • Re- connection 3/5

    By Kyle The Donut
    It’s great except it’s hard to reconnect from a phone call and other apps.
  • Sassy 5/5

    By sandybri
    Love it
  • Glitchy and crashes 1/5

    By skicr_z
    Does not work consistently. Crashes every other time. Have to reset Favs every time I load it which is every time it crashes. Worst app in my phone. Wouldn’t use it if I had a choice.
  • The app is terrible! 1/5

    By Anjel96
    I use to be able to download my shows from my DVR onto the phone and watch them while away from home, but it no longer works. I have deleted and re-added the app a few times hoping that would help resolve the issue, but no luck. When I open the app and go to Watch your DVR, nothing downloads. I am at home connected to WiFi but still nothing will load! Absolute waste! Fix your app!! This gets negative 5 stars!!
  • New user 1/5

    By Sad New User
    Can’t comment.. ever time I try to long it it will say it does not fine me. Checked my user ID changed my password successfully.. but no still will not let me in ... sad 🤔
  • If you think Directv on demand is bad... 1/5

    By Beanerton77
    If you think Directv on demand is bad... this app says, “Hold my beer” and show you what bad really is. There’s no way to logout of it. I have 15GB of content downloaded from my DVR to watch while traveling and yet the app says I have no downloaded content almost anytime I go to watch something. It just might be time for me to look at Comcast again... trading one devil for another, but at least the on demand would be something useable again!
  • Can’t Log in! 1/5

    By Pogo Mobil
    I changed my PW and tried to log in three times with the new PW, and I am still blocked. This AP is a pile.
  • App keeps crashing and blacking out 2/5

    By Iirvine doggggggyyyiloveyou
    Every morning when I launch the app, it “initializes” for about an hour. When it finally works, it continuously stalls and eventually goes to black screen.
  • Simply not worth the time 1/5

    By OlgaO71*
    The app is worthless!! It either won’t let you watch the shows you have saved on your dvr or it just plain won’t let you in to your app. I used the password I’ve had on there & it tells me I’m wrong. I reset my password & then it tells me I used an invalid character. And yes I typed it in twice to make sure I didn’t hit any other key. Simply not worth the frustration to use an app that only works HALF the time!!!!
  • Useless 1/5

    By Mmp1171
    Update is useless. Try to log in. Just comes back as “Unknown Error”. 15 times in a row. Then it says I typed in an invalid character in my password. Again Useless. All that I have expected from at&t who have ruined directv. Fortunately I was given an apology rate after the last battle. Once that runs out I am cancelling my service.
  • ATT 1/5

    By 77 kiltie
    This app is terrible I can never login and tells me that I entered a invalid character The cost has gone through the roof also 🤮
  • I’m so disappointed. 1/5

    By MiamiKoYo
    I’ve had Direct TV for a long time. Now, I’ve lost three channels. One of them being CBS. I’ve called, and the people I’ve spoken to have seemed nice but uncaring. I give you almost $400 a month. No more. And I’ll tell everyone I know.
  • The app doesn’t work 1/5

    By #educationmatters
    The app doesn’t work and no one at customer service/tech-support can assist you. This is the biggest waste of money in the telecommunications industry!
  • Like some things, dislike others! 4/5

    By racita
    I love that I can set a show to record while I am out and about and that I can pick which DVR to record it on but I have never been able to play my DVR playlist on my phone even when it asks me if I want too. I should probably call customer service about it.
  • Won’t recognize user id and password 1/5

    By kncascio86
    If you haven’t logged in for a while it won’t recognize your user id and password forcing you to delete the app and redownload it for it to work. Very inconvenient.
  • Please update 3/5

    By Dannyboyz86
    Like watching tv on app but currently not working
  • Slow, Fuzzy, and Buggy 1/5

    By DavidBendet
    This app has too many bugs and slow performance. Fast forwarding and rewinding programs has long delays. Viewing shows in the app are only low resolution. Many app features simply don’t work, such as inaccurate DVR listings, DVR sorting doesn’t work and many more issues I see to constantly experience. And all this is within my home. Away from home I can’t watch my recorded shows at all. And good luck trying to get experienced technical support through AT&T!
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Yeseniaa12
    Works very well and is super handy every time I’m on the go!
  • No local channel 25 1/5

    By zakkozz
    Love the app and directv programs but. Not having my local news going to start looking into something else
  • Absolute Garbage 1/5

    By dxuudcubfcuibfcnuf
    Crashes all the time.
  • You fixed issues? Really? No... 1/5

    By awwwweeeeeeesssssoooommmeeee
    Bugs are not fixed, maybe try again... kept trying to login to my account even changed the password Incase it was me and still didn’t work 30 minutes later. So annoyed that it wouldn’t recognize my account. Even STARZ wouldn’t log in. Directv is crap sometimes
  • Huge fail 1/5

    By van1141
    I downloaded this app in hopes of watching some of my shows while on the go. However, every time I try to do that, the app says unknown error & kicks me off. I can’t even get signed in successfully before the unknown error pops up. Once again, I would rather do away with being a directv customer! So disappointing!
  • The app does not Work 1/5

    By hg 1224
    The only reason I gave it one star is it wouldn’t allow me to give it a zero. Spent over 2 hours on the phone with direct tv and was finally told it was an engineering problem. Just doesn’t work. Hopefully somebody will contact me to and straighten out the problem.
  • The worst! 1/5

    By Lilpunky66
    I’ve been a long time direct tv customer, like pretty much as long as they have been in existence. Things have gone down the tubes since ATT took over. App is constantly buggy, server connection errors, sign in issues, you name it! Can’t sign in AGAIN!!!! About ready to ditch Direct TV if this continues. I pay over $200 a month for service that comes with a app that is spotty as best, and don’t get me started about trying to watch my dvr from a remote location.
  • Direct tv app 5/5

    By Lady "V"
    I love this app. I love the fact that I can watch my direct tv on the go.
  • Worst App on my phone 1/5

    By Wishing for an Update
    The Directv app is the worst app on my phone and unfortunately one that I would like to use often. Today, it won’t let me log in because it apparently can not connect to the server. Typically, I can log in but it never remembers where I left off on shows. If I watch a partial show on my home tv, the app doesn’t recognize it and makes me start over and visa versa. You cannot fast forward either. Also, they have a ton of commercials which seem to be the same few on repeat. I don’t mind commercials but it get old watching the same ones over and over during one episode. Also, many episodes that are available on the tv are not on the app. They need to take some notes from Netflix because I never have these issues with it. Hopefully they have some app updates in the near future.
  • Issues all the time 2/5

    By Smuers
    So many issues with this app. Sometimes it will take my password and sometimes it won’t. Most times it connects other times it says issues with network. It will stop loading if you check a second text. First time is fine. Second time it won’t reload.
  • Doesn’t work after update 1/5

    By brit2003
    After update there’s a big error where the app redirects you to the App Store after you sign into direct tv. Completely useless. Other reviews say the same. Clearly a direct tv issue. Fix it!
  • Not working 1/5

    By LaTravis
    Keep sending me to the App Store
  • Direct Tv App 5/5

    By Twvkdgkonsyvc(!&:(90?;&9.2$",:$zgRklfc
  • Terrible 1/5

    By all say taken
    We have a cabin and direct tv is are only option. Believe me it is awful. Last year we couldn’t get NBC because they were negotiating this summer it is ABC. Don’t get this if you have any option.
  • Unknown error 3/5

    By missywears
    Loved this app until a few days ago when it kept giving me an unknown error and sending me to the App Store. I haven’t been able to use this app in several days now. Please fix. Will give 5 stars once I can use the app again
  • Cannot sign on 1/5

    By Mrs. DAM
    I just downloaded your app a couple months ago, do not like it cannot sign in it only gives me half the screen does not give me the button to sign in, it does not show up underneath all of the copyright information. So far I give you no stars.
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By willtreng
    Really disappointed when you decided to drop or block channels that are in my plan.
  • Download show 2/5

    By Jklimczak
    Any show over 2 hours won’t play on the iPad please fix
  • Love it 5/5

    By Patti Copeland
    I love having easy assess to my shows
  • Lubaby 1/5

    By lubaby6604
    Your company needs to get NBC! You are charging us for service we aren’t getting.
  • Works well for me...however,... 4/5

    By Fussy--fotog
    My desktop computer DIRECTV web page insists I have the the wrong ID and password combination so, since I hate the hassle of contacting att again ( I have already tried to solve the problem...didn’t work when DIRECTV and att joined forces), I use my phone app to view what I need. It totally recognizes me instantly..of course att has absolutely no problem collecting my autopay each month!
  • Pésima 1/5

    By lkohy
    Como puede ser posible que spectrum tenga mejor acceso a la app y tenga mejor la aplicación que Directv
