DIRECTV app reviews

  • Great when it works 2/5

    By Tim Needham
    The app keeps resetting wiping out my downloads which I can’t even access even when they are there without getting permission over the internet. You can watch them once that permission has been obtained without the internet but the claim that you can watch them without the internet isn’t quite true. It seems that AT&T puts a much higher priority on digital rights management than usability of the software. I don’t know if it’s a hardware or software issue but most of the time I have trouble getting the required connection quality to watch my download programs. Even when my on demand functions work perfectly. I also am wondering what happens to the data of my downloaded programs when they disappear after a reset are they still there wasting my memory space but invisible or is it actually gone? AT&T has some the brightest engineers around so I don’t understand why they can’t fix these issues.
  • Initializing stall 3/5

    By HowTheyGetYou
    1) App gets stalled and never opens “initializing”, so cannot see programs. 2) Unless some extra item, $10, is installed, even if one had HD receiver, and premium level programming: CANNOT see all programs even if already run!!! CANNOT see PBS shows!!! CANNOT see “local” stations CANNOT stream all channels in your paid package

  • Ripoff 1/5

    By Stephie446
    I was completely lied to by AT&T. Said my bundle of TV/Internet/phone was going to be $156 per month & just got first month’s bill for $274. LIARS!
  • A direct rate 5/5

    By evil queen 36479042
    Love it
  • Awful design 1/5

    By Manatee5
    Awful design. Don't think you could make it more complicated if you tried. Have you guys seen competing apps?
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Jknod
    Recently upgraded my DirecTV system, which means I have a new DVR. No matter what I do, I can’t get the app to show my now DVR as available. I’ve even gone as far as deleting the app, and then inputting the IP address of the new DVR. No matter what, once I close my app, it defaults back to equipment that I no longer have. Ridiculous.
  • Don’t understand 5/5

    By Kmhbc
    I saw a truck driver complaining that his download did not work and he didn’t want to use up his data on the road. Reread att does not charge you data for streaming shows. It clearly stated this so stream away and watch all your episodes and favorite shows.
  • Review 5/5

    By jeffro lipp
    Great service and I love my direct tv!!!!!!
  • Disappointed DirecTV App 1/5

    By Dope3245
    I was enjoying my expensive DirecTV service on all my devices which is what helped me justify. You stop supporting all my devices over the past few monthsMy Kindle Fire HD and IPad iPod Why? How irresponsible and in considerate to end support before your software is ready to use on the operating systems you indicate it will work on.Will no doubt cancel DirecTV now.
  • Oklahoma Home 4/5

    By Bronte3
    Have trouble viewing some of my channels out of town via app. HBO free programming is marginal at best. During storms, lose programming. However, the reception and quality is very good non stormy weather. The App is pretty good.
  • Is this app still active? 1/5

    By Freeze Bash
    I have been trying to log in this app for about 2 months. I’ve changed my password 5 or 6 times because this app is CONSTANTLY saying it doesn’t recognize my username and/or password. I’m beyond frustrated!!!!!!!! Part of my monthly payments covers the ability to watch programming on my phone. Well that hasn’t been the case in months. Get it together please!
  • Trouble with Fox News 4/5

    By Clemea
    Having trouble with the Fox News Channel only just a black screen. Fox Business and the other channels works correctly. I am the only one having trouble with Fox News. All other channels work fine.
  • Badly done 1/5

    By Scott5484
    Getting tired of technical difficulties and the new banner across the top of the screen chopping off heads. Also tired of getting sent to most recent commercials on several shows.
  • Horrible app. Won’t work 1/5

    By Martin24888
    App is no good. Cannot login. Keep getting error messages. No help from customer services.
  • Inconsistent performance 1/5

    By Ulah1038
    Half the time download works. Half the time no. Get a text or something while watching blammmo stops working. This app does not work
  • Nice but slow to load 3/5

    By slowtoload
    Nice to have the option to watch on the go but confusing to load shows and watch later
  • ERROR...unknown error 1/5

    By RachelReneau
    Just got Directv installed 2 weeks ago...I have been trying to log in on IOS...I have spent a combined total of 8 hours with customer service 6 of those on hold! Every time I am bounced from representative to representative with no resolution (most of which we’re out sourced call centers from the Philippines who were unknowledgeable, and rude) I spoke with digital Assistance Center and was told 3 days ago that it was a system error with communication due to ATT change over that would be fixed in 24 hours...still can NOT login!!! We work out of town and this feature was the primary reason we chose Directv 😡
  • The only consistent thing about this app is how often it fails 1/5

    By Sturkey12356
    I have had xfinity and Fios and their apps for streaming and downloading shows makes this app look like an old broken down piece of garbage. Directv should be embarrassed by this.
  • Take it with you...not 2/5

    By Ex keeper
    If I’m at home, where I don’t need it, the app works great. When I want to watch something on my IPhone 8plus or my iPad it’s a roll of the dice and most of the time it’s a loss. Very frustrating to get this app to work and, if. You happen to get it working, it’s frustrating to keep it working. It shouldn’t be that hard.
  • Fix this!! 1/5

    By Joshchoo
    I’m always on the road, so I’m always using the app to watch tv. After starting my direct tv service for 4 days, I’m locked out of my account and get pass the login. Unknown error occurs and it’s saying my account is not active, it’s been 3 weeks now and still nothing changed. Customer service tell me the same thing over and over again, just wait.
  • Will not open 1/5

    By Just News
    The app keeps saying no connection to server. It was connected until 2 days ago. Fix this.
  • DTV APP 5/5

    By Rainydavis88
    I love using the DTV app. However, the live streaming of tv on other devices doesn’t show all the channels that are included on my package. Other then that it’s awesome. 👍🏻😁
  • Disappointing 1/5

    By momgik
    Have had this since mid March when we signed up for direct tv, unable to sign in, have called direct tv/Atand T they are working on it, 3 months later nothing yet but appreciation that I am a loyal customer, getting frustrating.
  • Completely useless 1/5

    By Twisted30
    The app says need to update. Click on it and it opens App Store. App Store shows current - click to Open and goes back to app... which says need to update. Click on it and it opens App Store. App Store shows current - click to Open and goes back to app... ENDLESS LOOP!!!
  • 👎 2/5

    By Jammer 123
    application needs a lot of help it crashes a lot
  • I just want to watch my shows!! 2/5

    By Chanifrom216
    When I first downloaded everything was great and had no problems watching shows on the app. Now every time I try to open the app now it say “ can not connect to server” and redirects me to the App Store to the U-Verse app!!
  • Nice app 5/5

    By butthole 2000

  • Please fix 1/5

    By sgt_spike
    This app is garbage. I’ve had to uninstall/reinstall the app several time to get it to work. I downloaded my recorded show before I leave for work. They completely download. Go back into the app to watch my downloaded shows and it just sits there, spinning, trying to load the playlist. The show are download to the phone, why does it take so long to load the playlist?
  • IOS 11 1/5

    By Salvaduti
    App works sporadically. Sometimes no sounds, it freezes frequently. Getting really old.
  • Missing the game!! 1/5

    By Imso5two0
    Always logs me out. Now I locked out cause it doesn’t recognize email or password. Hate this app!!!
  • Directv isn’t working 1/5

    By RobShop
    My directv and remote have not worked for 2 days and the tv is stuck on the screen that says no signal. It is on the correct source.
  • Not able to even sign on anymore 1/5

    By Veritas-Vincit
    Although it seemed great at first, working on the phone and IPad, now not at all. As a paying customer it actually tells the paid that has worked, that I am either ‘not valid Id’ or ‘error ‘unknown error’. I was never told of this issue, yet promises of taking my direct with me, not so much. Mind you I am even using At&t to Directv, unbelievable. The worst part is the app customers service..
