DIRECTV app reviews

  • No bueno 1/5

    By loololll
  • Needs work 3/5

    By Allison60
    Nice to be able to watch programs on my phone, but sound cuts off for several minutes at crucial moments. Hope this gets resolved soon.
  • Direct tv app 2/5

    By toquechef
    HATE that the app opens to CNN!
  • Great app 4/5

    By chucktown95
    T.I. wish they offer more channels and option
  • Favorite shows on the go! 5/5

    By Love2Hum
    Convenient and easy to use. I don’t use it daily or often, but when I need it, it doesn’t disappoint!
  • Audio goes out 3/5

    By Colombian Gold
    Not sure if the update fixed this, but it’s super annoying when I’m watching a show on my phone then all of a sudden the audio goes out for 5 min on and off sometimes. Since it’s live I can’t rewind, so you miss out on a chunk of the program. Also, the network will say not available then you have to refresh.....etc. Thank you....
  • Shows won’t play 2/5

    By Henry LeBlanc
    I am able to watch movies with ease but when it comes to tv shows the video doesn’t load and all that plays is the sound. Also the screen freezes. I have tried restarting my phone and redownloading the app but the problem still remains.
  • Tired of this 1/5

    One of the main problems I’m having is trying to look at my on demand channels! When I pull up certain shows, my phone freezes up! You can hear the show, but not see what’s going on!!! This has become yoo frustrating!! I pay to be able to watch tv anywhere! I’m considering canceling DirecTV and get a fire stick!!! This is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE!!!
  • App isn’t good 1/5

    By Jbob678001
    My shows never start they always get stuck in the loading screen
  • ATT/DTV App Is F%%ked up totally now 1/5

    By 94055118995645058
    Used to work fine then one day it started complaining that the PWD had an invalid character despite PWD not been changed. This is a symptom of developer f!!k up.
  • Free Data? 1/5

    By Mox_13
    I don’t get how Direct TV can advertise data free streaming when you have to be connected to your home network to watch any TV show with the app. Seems worthless to me.
  • Horrible Glitches 1/5

    By alannalou22
    Love watching DirecTV on my phone but it has horrible glitches. Will show loading screen and start the show but stuck on loading screen.
  • Thank you for your excellent service during these critical days!!! 5/5

    By Cecy L
    I really thank you for your services. I keep myself informed during my rest and meal periods. God bless you!
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By Surprised123
    Since the last update when I try to watch on my iPhone I get an error message. I powered down my phone and than turn it back on it worked but than the next time I tried to watch on my phone the same thing happen, turned the power off and on and it worked again should not have to do this every time you want to watch it. So it is a useless app at this point!
  • Annoying. 2/5

    By vanascious
    I can’t watch anything using this app without the ads cutting into the episode. I don’t mind ads but I miss portions of the show because the episode continues while the ad is on. When I try to go back to see if I can still catch it, it still doesn’t allow me to watch it. Please fix.
  • Voice control on app 2/5

    By RSSTT
    The option to use voice control on the app has disappeared. I want it back last update too it away. Why????
  • Not working 1/5

    By jj50403
    The screen flickers and there’s a message the says error content can not be played
  • 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.
  • Has 5/5

    By Jas173711
  • SAVE DTV 5/5

    By [Alone]
    DTV is the best. It is a shame that ATT is letting it die. You could keep subscribers if you would let them pick the channels they want to watch.
  • Not work in my anymore 1/5

    By Sracop
    This app used to work just fine. Now it’s asks me for my email address, which I don’t use. And then when I try logging with with the address it just kicks me out and says invalid user ID. Really frustrating. Tried resetting password and forgot ID and neither work.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By nope dont bother
    Used to use this app a lot to watch TV when I travel for work now all I get is “ content can’t be played at this time “ I have even called for help and was told everything is ok it should work nope won’t work hasn’t worked for a long time took the app off my phone and iPad very disappointed would give no stars but that’s not an option
  • NOT available for Directv PR customers 1/5

    By TechJunkiiii
    I have a Directv (Puerto Rico) subscription, since the service is not available here, My brother tried to use the Directv app (He lives in NC), but he can’t login (user/pass) does not exist, so I guess Directv and Directvpr are TOTALLY different companies? I miss Dish.
  • In my yard 5/5

    By eright26
    Direct tv app is so convenient. I am working in yard but want to keep up with news or watch whatever.
  • STUPID APP 5/5

    By RJP91192
    This APP is STUPID. I’ve been trying to log into it for over a month. Different error message each time. Called direct tv they are USELESS!
  • Never works right 1/5

    By mlwags
    Can’t ever watch DVR programs
  • iPhone 11 Gets HOT 3/5

    By octopus-beta
    I stream using different apps for different services. THIS app causes my device to get extremely hot. No case installed. Bare phone. This is an app issue. Please fix.
  • NoStarsGiven 1/5

    By BrittanyBz
    If I could give no star I would. This app use to be great but I say for last four months or so it has crashed. DirectTV I know you see the comments fix the APP man. Keep Gerti g this Invalid Character error and It send me to my app page to download it. UGH frustrating. I should have know when the app kept freezing and the audio would be off that it was about to crash. Come on man, fix it to where the Soldiers who have to leave home are able to watch TV on the App.
  • Terrible site 1/5

    By Frustrated3944729
    This is the worst app I have every used. Can’t watch anything I am looking for. Says “I need to be connected to my network to watch” what kind of bs is that? I am not at home that’s why I want to watch in my phone but can’t. Have to sign in 50 times to do anything. I already signed in why do I have to do it again and again and again? What happened to you att?
  • ERROR Messages 1/5

    By peter-pan
    Applications no longer works. Can’t sign in and App Support has an error message.
  • Total App Failure 1/5

    By alid213
    For some reason last week the app completely stopped working. When I login it says login failed please try again later I have tried 100 times in a weeks time. I’ve tried to call directv and att have sat on hold for hours and then they eventually hang up on you and NEVER ANSWER THE PHONE! This is BS bc non of the other apps will let you watch your shows bc it can’t link to my provider! Ie ( Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC)
  • Awesome 5/5

    By Versal12
    Love it! I can view it wherever I go. It also helps me to keep informed on the latest news.
  • Help !! 1/5

    By Joanna j j
    I have been having issues with logging into my directtv app please help me gain access to my account I would like to be able to watch shows on the go and watch recorded DVR movies !!!! This has been an issue for months !
  • Why I didn’t give a five star rating 3/5

    By yanna 81
    The reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating is because it goes really slow even when I’m fast internet
  • DirectTV App 3/5

    By Corrina Sports Mom
    Direct TV is great but can get slow, can’t open certain channels & you can’t hear the sound sometimes
  • Error message 1/5

    By kateturtdle098:
    I downloaded multiple times & always had error message. What’s the point in having this service if I can’t use the app
  • Works mostly 3/5

    By Pacificcityfishing
    Spotty at times. Works mostly
  • Unintuitive app 1/5

    By trash apple
    Not suited for a smart phone freezes and crashes to often even after an update nothing in the app changed it was still the same old unrefined waste of an app it doesn’t even give you setting options to manage your account you have to use myAT&T app and you have to deal with 611 customer service and they are the worst almost worst than bankers
  • 👌🏾 5/5

    By carbontwelve13
    Very underrated app . Works and functions almost perfect.
  • Automatically plays CNN 1/5

    By Jimmy Again
    Why does this app automatically begin playing terrible CNN after launching app?
  • Do not recommend 1/5

    By dr3a_8
    Straight trash! Will play audio instead of actual video. Constantly crashes. Absolutely hate it👎🏾
  • “Unknown Error” on iPad 4/5

    By LJinTex
    I use this app several hours each day....or at least I did until a couple weeks ago when I started getting the less than helpful message of “Unknown Error” when attempting to launch the app. It was working okay one day, then the next it was unusable. I’ve tried uninstalling, reinstalling, changing passwords and checking settings. Still nothing. I’ve googled and seen other people mention the same problem but I haven’t found a solution yet. VERY annoying!! Fortunately, the app on my iPhone is working. Fingers crossed! issues
  • Pretty inconsistent. Great when it does work. 3/5

    By appalive
    Watching on demand sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. Sound will play but no video. Every time I launch it says network problems. Local channels can’t be watched live. Get rid of the bugginess and it’d be great.
  • Garbage 1/5

    By boyesreef
    Giving less than one star would be nice. App freezes any time you use it, can’t actually play ANY of my shows, and when you can get some stupid show to play, if you pause it long enough for tour screen to sleep, you start the whole dance over again. Apparently it’s not made for an iPhone 8. It’s a free app from my provider, but it will be deleted.
  • Can’t get logged in 1/5

    By Squidghggghjjgf
    An endless loop of changing your password only to be told it doesn’t recognize your info. Tech support is a waste of time
  • Remembering who I am 1/5

    By LoveandRockets163
    Remembering who I am is very important. This app forgets me, doesn’t remember where I am. I can be watching for hours, switch to another app, and they forget where I’m at/who I am and I have to watch a whole other batch of ads...which just so happens to be right after the ads that I just watched. I’m on to you, and after corona I won’t be a customer any longer. I dont need to watch 13 ads to get your service, honey I already pay for it. Fix this.
  • Can’t be beat 5/5

    By Chef'sJK
    Amazing customer service, sooooo many available discounts or promotional offers . AT&T / Directv go out of their way to keep you happy.
  • Garbage! 1/5

    By Jessekemper12
    Can't watch any other shows than live tv. This app is garbage. Never passes authorizations when watching show. Gets sound but no video.
  • Can’t login 2/5

    By classof78
    Can’t login and I changed password twice
