  • How can I delete? 5/5

    Love watching my dive while on vacation but need to delete some shows to free up space. How?
  • Technical Issues 1/5

    By Ananavarro97
    Continuously says my account information is not recognizable, but I’m able to log in through the website. I normally like it but since last month it has stopped working for me.
  • Doesn't let me log in 1/5

    By ESadowsky
    Terrible app
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By 👻💩🤖😻👾🤡
    Hasn’t worked for over a year on my phone. Won’t even let me log in. Just says Lost internet connection. Does it even when connected to WiFi. I’m paying for direct tv, so I shouldn’t be having these issues. I deleted the app and redownloaded, but same issue. Please fix it!!! I would give no stars if possible, since this app gives me nothing but an error.
  • App needswork 1/5

    By Suthrntrvlr
    App never works. At least not for me
  • App doesn’t work 1/5

    By gdxjikvn
    This app doesn’t work
  • Initializing... 2/5

    By Joyboy79
    The app is generally a little hard to understand and navigate but I’ve gotten the hang of it over the last couple years. And most of the time I can’t get it to connect to my DVR. Also, I haven’t used the app for a couple of weeks but the last few days I have tried to open the app it just stays on the “ Initializing...” screen and won’t go any further.
  • Best rudimentary app 1/5

    By Powervall
    It’s like watching slow motion, inconsistent, 14.4 archaic WebCam. Worst app ever. No hyperbole. Do you want quality? Sling TV is amazing. Even if it’s just for the app. It’s flawless. DIRECTV is far, far from that. I wish I could submit was zero stars
  • Invalid character 1/5

    By tnt2gether
    It won’t let me login in at all. Gives me an error code of oops looks like you entered an invalid code. iPhone X
  • CNN 3/5

    By Ecboyz
    HATE.....that every time you open the App CNN is on... have to pause it.. to search...
  • Horrible 1/5

    By iLuv2Travel
    Glitches to the point where you don’t even want to use it.
  • Failure for keeping updated 1/5

    By 1Mystic
    App worked great on my iPhone 7.... get iPhone X and stuck in an unknown error loop that sends me back to App Store. Customer Services knows nothing of this issue and was no help telling me to uninstall and reinstall which I had already done. First time I’m frustrated with AT&T.
  • good app thanks 5/5

    By good yobe
  • Best streaming so far 5/5

    Love being able to watch my shows when away from home and having the ability to record them away from home.
  • BAD APP 1/5

    By eelaia

  • DOES NOT LET ME SING IN. So upset 1/5

    By javi123!

  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Smeebugs
    The app takes forever to open and load. I don’t know why it doesn’t save my info when u get on the app to log in someone needs to fix the bug fixes or something. Cuz this is frustrating. And I travel away from home a lot. And I can’t even use this app to record shows!!!!
  • Garbage 1/5

    By christina7735
    This app makes me want to throw my phone across the room! I have deleted and redownloaded multiple multiple times, and it still CRASHES every. single. time. So frustrating.
  • Awful 1/5

    By DirectDumbness
    This app will not let me sign in even though I know my information and changed the password. It says error then blinks me to the AppStore to attempt to re download it.
  • Can’t access on my phone 1/5

    By lupe1959
    I can’t access direct tv on my phone, I call for help and get some that is in another country, that can’t help. All I get is reset your password.
  • If I could rate less than 1 star I would 1/5

    By Beer65789
    This is by far the worst app in the history of apps. I cannot wait to switch to dish.
  • App stinks 1/5

    By dukeofearl70
    This app stinks. I’ve had Directv for 2 months or more, called Directv, and nobody can get my app to pull-up on my iOS devices
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By 30something +
    It takes for ever to load. It freezes constantly. You have to open and close the app to and three times before it will quit initializing. It’s not worth the frustration of trying to watch until they fix bugs.
  • Customer service is trash 4/5

    Not gonna get into detail but just wait until you have a billing issue and you will see where I’m coming from. I gave it 4 stars for the app in general but DTV in a while is a rip off but I’ll continue to pay lol
  • Poor 1/5

    By Jaccksplace
    Needs an overhaul. I constantly have to delete n re download to get anything to work. The same annoying problems have been going on for 2 years and no fixes. Great work for a tech company!?!?👎🏼🤬
  • Completely Broken 1/5

    By gbmccut
    The app does not work at all. AT&T and Direct TV need to fix their broken apps or I am going somewhere else. The apps have been broken since began service with AT&T and Direct TV.
  • What’s the point? 2/5

    By Mike6788fly
    What’s the point of the app if you can’t watch anything if “your device isn’t connected to the same internet as your box”? Or something like that. Trying to watch a game while at the airport? No you’re not allowed
  • Great app 5/5

    By 😎Mike
    Wonderful brings home with you in your pocket
  • Please fix this app! 1/5

    By Ruthie52
    I’ve been streaming on my iPad to watch all the new Christmas movies I had recorded on my genie 2. It buffered a lot and would knock you out of app at times. I dealt with it. Last night I watched a movie from my dvr but when I started to watch the 2nd movie from same dvr I get an error 102 message that I’m streaming from another device. I’m the only one at my home that streams so how can someone else do this? I’ve google to see if there was anyway to fix this problem without any luck. It seems that I’m not the only one with this problem and everyone with this problem says it does no good to call direct tv. And that this has been going on for several years. Not a happy camper and seriously thinking of going with another cable company.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By SlytherinQueen$$
    This is awesome bcs I can watch anything I want anytime anywhere.
  • Should be zero stars and too expensive 1/5

    By unsatisfied 19
    Something is wrong with the app. I can’t login and I get an error message saying I must have entered an invalid character. As expensive as Directv is y’all need to fix the app. Also, the linking of bills with ATT is a nightmare. No one never knows what’s going on. AS SOON AS MY CONTRACT IS UP WITH DIRECTV, IM CANCELLING MY SERVICES!!!
  • Slow 3/5

    By Deb.kenyan
    When I try to log into search for a particular channel is is very slow moving to get info or channel
  • Painful 1/5

    By ReadyToCancel2019
    This APP is excruciating to use... the interface changes without warning. Watching from iPhone is intermittently unavailable “based on content” message comes up. I can watch some news shows and not others. Now I’ve invested over 20 hours trying to “fix” the app both on my own and with AT&T support ... and no one knows how to restore the service. I even spoke to a manager... days ago... and she took a bunch of information but no one called me back to troubleshoot.
  • Directv App 1/5

    By spacebass1
    This app does not work at all. My account name and password are correct and it still doesn’t work! That’s terrible because I have been a customer for years!
  • Stuck in a loop 1/5

    By Burnurse63
    Same error message wrong password, when you click “ok” it sends you back to App Store to “open” the app which then takes you back to the same error message....over & over. Deleting doesn’t help, neither does restarting.
  • I love it 5/5

    By mejia f
    It’s awesome
  • Getting worse and worse 1/5

    By RNCS-
    Once upon a time this app was somewhat useful. Now it is hard to even get it running — usually have to force-kill and retry starting it 4-5 times just to get to a listing of current TV shows. I’ve been trying for several days to get the DVR playlist to update. I guess it’s never going to happen. Hey, DirecTV how about fixing this horrible app?
  • GOAT 5/5

    By mipmob
    Best Service and app I ever experienced thanks Direct Tv!!!!
  • Bad 1/5

    By Hizgood30
    This app started out as an asset but since last update, I can’t even get it to load. I’ve deleted & downloaded again & same thing!!! It would actually be awesome if these things were addressed.
  • Love my Direct TV 5/5

    By BeckeeBoop
    I love it
  • Seriously? 1/5

    By Iremaintyc
    I am so tired of this App and it’s only making me dislike Direct TV more and more. Can you all seriously not make this app worth anything? FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY!!! Take pride in your product and give your customers what we pay for! Att/DirectTV you really are HORRIBLE! I’m leaving.
  • Score of sporting events in description 4/5

    By Lip 12345
    Why, when I am trying to watch a sporting event recorded today, would you put the score in the description?
  • Take it with you a joke!!! 1/5

    By AprilReece
    This app never works correctly. Everything I want to watch is blacked out!!! If it your TV and you should be able to watch any time then why do you block things out. And why must I download things in my house before I can watch them outside my home. I’m sorry but the whole system needs lots of work.
  • Hot garbage 1/5

    By PaulD32
    This app is hot garbage and makes want to switch to cable. My god
  • Setting recording fail 1/5

    By Codaham
    The app shows a confirmation page when setting shows to record, but when you get home, nothing has been recorded. Terrible.
  • Directv fails again... 2/5

    By Linmn64
    As of 1-13-19 the app won’t load and claims to have an unknown error... one of the many failings of directv, the Comcast of by services.
  • Not much good 1/5

    By ScottieSammie
    Very slow to load if it loads at all. Basically I consider this a worthless app . I used to use it all the time to set up recording’s on my DVR but I find it a complete waste of time now.
  • Terrible app 1/5

    By Quickthots
    Consistently takes forever to load, it stands alone as the worst app on my phone, and performance is very spotty in terms of actually recording the shows you set up to record via the app. And the commercial AT&T forces you to watch before it will open the app up is extremely annoying. The entire DIRECTV experience has gone in the tank since AT&T took over. Probably time to cut the cord.
  • att has ruined directv 1/5

    By Tango uniform
    Mobile app won’t even load. Deleted, cleared, reload and it immediately gives a whoops message. Worked great before it had att attached to it, they don’t care about customers anymore.
