DIRECTV app reviews

  • App needs update 2/5

    By Word girl 45
    Cumbersome to navigate.
  • Super Awesome! 5/5

    By loophole loop
    When I want to watch a movie ir tv show thats in my playlist i can just pull out my phone
  • App doesn’t work 1/5

    By stinky lipstick
    App used to work just fine. Now it won’t let me log in. Even after changing my password and then immediately attempting log in. Piece of shit app.
  • Bill to high 5/5

    By 139 nap
    I would like to cancel service
  • Error after error with a terrible interface 1/5

    By Stokes34
    I recently went back to Directv from Spectrum after two years, I hated Spectrum. I like the service of Directv on the TV and using the genie box however the app is absolutely terrible. Everyday I get different errors when going into it. I won’t bring up a channel the first time, at time it just kicks me out completely or I just get the continual circle so I have to restart the app. Once I finally get in, the apps interface is terrible. The look and feel of it is outdated and is not seem less to use. When you try and scroll up or down it hits other channel to easy, very frustrating to use. The app needs a lot of work and a lot of fixing. Hopefully the developers of the app will make much needed changes to the interface and bug fixes.
  • Rarely works 1/5

    By Idigpooks
    This app constantly says, error unknown and then closes. When it does work, it usually takes multiple opening and closing of the app. Idk what the point is of this app because it just doesn’t work.

    HELLO DIRECTV AT&T? ANYONE HOME? clearly something is wrong with this app as millions of people on here and social media CANNOT LOG IN!!!!
  • Skips Parts of On Demand Videos when Commercials Happen 1/5

    By Devilinski
    When you watch videos on the app from on demand while the commercial plays the episode skips forward for that amount of time so after every commercial you have to rewind back to get to where you were. Very poor design and execution of the app.
  • Wow is this app bad. 1/5

    By Ed jones1
    You had one job..tell me what’s on. Not that hard. Except, we can’t set favorite channels as the default view; that takes multiple pushes each use. The view won’t stay in the time frame chosen. Instead it keeps going back to the current time. And, now, ads. ☹️Seriously? For all we pay directv? And the terrible programming that pollutes most channels? At least fix this app. Not that much to ask.
  • Broken app 1/5

    By disapointed isser
    This app will not even load up at this point
  • Great 5/5

    By stoprtr
  • Terrible 1/5

    By JacobM11
    Literally the worst streaming app ever, only works when you don’t have something to watch. I use this primarily to watch soccer matches every time I try to watch my team play, the app just stops working and multiple things go wrong with the app
  • Glitches 4/5

    By $Elisa$
    I love being able to watch from my phone but there are glitches. It will start a show and I can hear audio but the screen is stuck on the loading picture. Super frustrating.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By dumbaaatv
    Have not been able to log in since password and user id change.. need to fix this bug ASAP
  • Problems 2/5

    By kidscits
    Cuts out all the time. Happens in the house connected to Wifi and also on the road. Sometimes I can see a picture and people are talking but NO SOUND. HAPPENS ALL THE TIME.
  • Slow to open 2/5

    By Umongus
    Good app. Far from great. Once it finally verifies your info, logs into your account, and optimizes video........shows over and it’s drained your battery. Also I’ll be watching a show on live TV, it will shut down, then when I try to get back in it tells me program is not authorized....WHAT HAPPENED? Needs work.
  • Still doesn’t work 1/5

    By Wcarmichael
    Have been trying to use this app for over a year and it is still not working after contacting AT&T. Will start looking for a better provider.
  • Review for Direct TV 5/5

    By cly claire
    I love the app the k my thing I would fix is the loading it says it’s loading but then it starts talking and you can’t see but the rest is spot on!
  • Buffers every 2 minutes 1/5

    By Ragincajun1322
    I can have full signal and watching anything on my phone will freeze after 2 minutes and takes forever to continue watching. It’s a multimillion dollar company that can’t get their crap together
  • Get errors on multiple channels 1/5

    By JLPlemmons
    I constantly get errors on multiple channels. I cannot watch these channels as these errors never correct themselves and the makers of the app never address these issues either. This app is a total waste.
  • Not working 1/5

    By Trying to record
    I’ve reset my password and updated the app! The app is not allowing me to log in, which is strange because I was able to a day ago! I’m sick of this app and wish they get it together!
  • Can’t log in.....still 1/5

    By Rigotisca
    Been over a year since I’ve been able to use the app to watch tv on the go, I’ve changed my user id and password I’ve spoken with support team and no one knows why I can’t log in, at times it says invalid character which has always been strange to me and other times it tells me the email or id is not associated with my account. It sure works though when I need to log in and pay my bill in the att app. Very frustrating, I’ve just given up with this app.
  • Recording is trash 1/5

    By Swirlybs
    Love coming home after I selected to record a major sporting event(with no real confirmation it happened on the app) and a big nothing. Im 1 for 3 now this year.
  • Unbelievable!!!! 1/5

    By Evonnecp
    Nickname tried (Sept, 24th)... Had very similar issues as you... Now with my wireless, I used to be able to click on my Directv app and stream all my TV + my free HBO (Unlimited Plus Enhanced Subscriber) now I'm told I have to use the ”WatchTV App”.... Tried logging in, they said you have to subscribe first.... Lol!! Ok, SO HOW DO YOU SUBSCRIBE???? their IS NO SUBSCIBE LINK... Only SIGN IN!!!! OMGOSH!!! Talk about maddening!!!!! I just give the heck up.
  • Way too many glitches 1/5

    By Prddj
    It’s easy to set up a recording, but if you’d like to watch anything on demand or in your playlist it freezes frequently.
  • The worst experience I’ve ever had from a tv supplier. 1/5

    By {#{}{}
    I’ve decided to cancel my ties with Directv after years of service. I don’t wish anyone to experience what I went thru . After 2 hours of repetitive explaining my problem it’s still not fixed and they have no ideal when it will be.
  • Too many bugs 1/5

    By Tm9797
    Constantly crashes. Needs to get fixed. Can’t even get 5 minutes into a show without having to restart the app. This is ridiculous for how much this company makes.
  • Absolute TRASH 1/5

    By breeeeeeeezy babyyyy
    I can always count on this able to not work whatsoever. It crashes like it needs a update every time I open it. You can’t even watch your recorded shows unless you’re connected to your home’s box so what’s the point? I’m obviously trying to watch on-the-go so that makes no sense. And good luck trying to watch live TV... usually only one channel works live and the other ones that do buffer so much that it’s unreal. It’s been over a year with this bs. Just take this off the app store, Direct TV.
  • Disappointed Granny 1/5

    By EtteeOldee16
    I’ve used this app for a long time now and I use it a lot because I’m away from my TV and it’s convenient to watch. Well the app now won’t let me sign in anymore. It says ERROR Oops incorrect character I entered I don’t have a character in my password and I’ve used it for lots of years and I even changed it and still get that message. Again and again tried to sign in can’t do it 6 1/2 hrs later on 4 calls still the same crap. Now today they said they are updating the system call back I. 4hrs this is terrible never had this until ATT took over Directv for sure. Very frustrated and if I get my app straightened out I’ll review again but right now it’s horrible. And I would do zero if I could at this point. Thanks I’m done
  • App has failed 1/5

    By Chris in direct marketing
    As of today, over the past weeks, the app is not working. No guides. Live tv does not load. Search for a show, movie or channel and it says “Error please pick another channel”. I have brand new everything. Failing on multiple devices.
  • App no longer allows me to even sign in 1/5

    By ZoeSanuk
    Nothing here to see, because I cannot even sign into the app anymore to watch anything or set recordings. But, the same user name and password work just fine to log me in online to pay my bill.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By Emilydahled08
    Charge outrageous prices and the app is horrible. It makes no sense why I have to watch 6, 5 minute commercials on a show that has been pre recorded.
  • I used t love this app 2/5

    By carmstr1
    It worked well. Now all it does is initialize
  • CNN 3/5

    By kpc119
    Why does CNN pop up even though I only watch Fox. I’m about to change service
  • Great 5/5

    By Applehaed1
    Love it all
  • Couldn’t get worse 1/5

    By Bindows
    This app looks and feels like it was developed by a 10 year old. The interface is terrible, the lack of functionality is ridiculous and the amount of times it crashes is unacceptable. You cannot watch from your dvr unless you’re on the same WiFi because it will NOT sync properly. What’s the point in having an app if you can only watch at home?
  • Never fully works 1/5

    By Voodoo hairdresser
    Never loads shows you want to watch and shows a blacked out screen!!!! So annoying!!!
  • Battery Drainer 1/5

    By Daner04
    This app drains my iPhone battery soooo fast and makes the phone incredibly hot. I find it annoying that I have to open the app when my TV is on in order to sync recorded shows, how is that convenient? And the commercials...I pay to be able to fast forward through this, the same should be available in the app as well. Things have gone south since AT&T took over. 👎🏻
  • Won’t work 1/5

    By sarasmartt
    I try to log in and it says I used a wrong character and unknown error. It worked fine until yesterday.
  • Review 5/5

    By GrisselleG
    The application is perfect I just wish that we can watch in our phone the same channels we see at home, but regular tv is limited
  • Adriana 5/5

    By guerrera19
    Es una aplicación muy útil solamente que sería muy completa si pudiera tener acceso a todos los canales como en mi televisor cuando esté dentro y fuera de casa. Gracias
  • Streaming probs 4/5

    By hactorn
    I love being able to watch what I want when I want but I get a lot of trouble streaming even when I have 4G LTE available.
  • Missing shows 3/5

    By snowbunnie01
    It won’t let me watch all of my show it plays ads over top of the show I’m trying to watch so I miss huge chunks of the show! Sometimes I can hear it but all I see is the ads and there’s no way to skip the ads or rewind to the part I missed!
  • Lame 1/5

    By Lasvegasmedic
    We record tv to fast forward commercials this app is useless to watch This is the most worthless app I finally deleted it It always crashes and won’t reload

  • Worse App 1/5

    By Trelle no.2
    Trying to stream from the app and it gives me a message that is authorizing and never brings up the picture . this happens on half the shows I try to watch. Worse app ever.
