requires following permissions on your android device.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

    It never connects to my receiver, I've trouble shooted this several times over the phone with technical department and there has been no solution. Since it doesn't work I should be able to uninstall this to make space, but I can't . Waste of space bc app never worked.

  4. Eileen Voss-avatar

    I don't like having apps forced on to my phone without the ability to delete them. I don't have direct TV so this app is useless.

  27. LYDIA from SOUTH FLORIDA-avatar



    years ur personal data for it

  28. gopinhead-avatar

    Won't uninstall

  29. Mike Doe-avatar

    I didn't like it when it was working, and now I completely despise the fact it's not working! I understand AT&T and Samsung decided to make this app an exclusive feature for the latest flagship Galaxy devices to create an all out ease of use experience but I truly wish they would've worked out all the bugs beforehand. My recalled Note 7 device connected fine, but my new device will not find the recievers at all even after manually inputting the IP address. It should also have the ability to control channels

  30. Michael C-avatar

    I can't stream DirecTV on my phone but it will not let the phone change channels on the TV it says needs to be connected to same network. Under connected receivers all it has is a blue dot. When I hit refresh nothing happens. Try to enter IP address manually and nothing happens. Everything works fine on my iPad would like this to work on Samsung S7 too.

  31. Theresa Lavigne-avatar

    Theresa Lavigne


    Why must you waste space on my phone with this useless crap? Direct TV sucks and now you force me to have it on my phone! I love Samsung but all these useless apps that came on my phone really bother me. If I wanted the dam app then I'd download it myself! Just because it's the "hot new app" doesn't mean I want it!

  32. K Hall-avatar

    Previous "unlimited" data complaints related to watching via the Direct TV app have been resolved since it now doesn't affect data. However, in 5 months after at least as many visits to the at&t store, our pricing is still not correct, promised credit has not been applied, and on the latest bill the Direct TV went back up! Never had this trouble with Sprint phone and cable TV. Still don't think it's worth it.

  33. Frank Eberling-avatar

    I really like the idea of swiping down to quickly access my remote but all it does is pause/ff/rew tv. Not sure how that's useful. If I could change the channel or jump to last channel id love it!

  34. Jennifer Hinrichs-avatar

    Jennifer Hinrichs


    The app is a good idea. I have a lot of reflection in my house so my actual remote is finicky. I just wish I would stop getting consistent error reports that the app has stopped working and I'm not even using it!

  35. Emella Loran-avatar

    I can't uninstall this useless crap. Seriously, I'm sure it's great for some people, but for me it's junk. I remember a time when you were actually able to download apps you actually wanted/needed. That practice made sense. Today's practice of just forcing your bs religion on us so ya'll can line your pockets, is crap.

  36. Terry Walker-avatar

    I don't like this app, nor do I use it. You don't even get the option to Uninstall it. Also on the related app, I keep getting the message "Unfortunately, Direct TV had stopped working". I have tried to Uninstall it, but Direct TV app keeps popping back up. If it continues, I'm strongly considering switching carriers.

  37. A Google user-avatar

    I'm not sure what this app is supposed to do. I connect it to my receiver, input the ip address, and it looks good to go. I open the app and it tells me to swipe down to access the remote. There's no remote option. Nothing happens. What's the purpose of this app?

  38. Annette Stephenson-avatar

    Annette Stephenson


    OK I don't care it stopped working, I want it deleted and there is no option for that. So frustrating

  39. bill swindle-avatar

    I had satellite TV and no matter what you say, it will NOT work when the weather gets even a little bad. A buddy of mine has had Directv for 2 months and it goes out often. And not trees don't obstruct it.

  40. Tyler Lusk-avatar

    Let us change the channel, or even access the DVR playlist, adjust volume, something. Just expand the app.

  41. Matthew Dye-avatar

    So many problems. 1. While I have DirecTV, I do not have a compatible receiver, making this app useless. 2. Since I can't use this app, I would not install it on my device. 3. Frankly it's kind of infuriating that I don't have a choice in the matter (other than to disable it.) Thanks, AT&T, for yet again making a terrible app that no one should have.

  42. Rayna Dixon-avatar

    So why do I have to be forced to keep this stupid thing on my phone when I will never get Direct TV. Plus this damn error message keeps popping up saying it's not working so you want to report it. No I just want it off my phone in general.

  43. Westen Schroeder-avatar

    First the app is good for some things like catching up on the last episode but when it comes to actually watching like football games it sucks it will tell you,you can watch it on your phone and then it won't let you so fix the app so

  44. Karsten Treu-avatar

    There isn't even a "select" button I can find, once you open the guide or menu there is no way to get rid of it. How pathetic.

  45. Shawn McKeon-avatar

    Galaxy S7 edge - finds my receiver (after I told it the IP) Says to swipe down for remote, but nothing happens - then goes to settings... ?

  46. Marlene Deweese-avatar

    I canceled it years ago! My phone came with it. I would rather not have the waste of space on my phone!

  47. Dave Sassman-avatar

    This is driving me crazy, can't delete it and I don't even have Direct came on my phone and there seems to be nothing I can do. Can't Delete

  48. A Google user-avatar

    I don't even want this on my phone, but I guess att just assumes I do! It does nothing but drain my battery and constantly alert me that direct TV has stopped working! I can't stand this!

  49. A Google user-avatar

    Manually add IP adress??? Then it so want even work. This thing sucks

  50. Jordan Garcia-avatar

    Why do i keep getting a pop up that keeps saying " Unfortunately, Direct TV has stopped"?? Please fix this. Its anoying and pops up everytime i am on my phone. Thanks

  51. Will Glenn-avatar

    REMOVE FROM APPS! It takes up space and I don't even have Direct TV. Should be something that anyone with Direct TV has the OPTION to download.

  52. Jeremy Geisler-avatar

    I don't have direct TV and have np interest in getting. However this app refuses to uninstall and continues to update. Unfortunately rooting isnt an option either :(

  53. Denny English-avatar

    I see my receivers but cannot get it to do anything. What is it supposed to do. Totally useless. I want it off my phone.

  54. Mike Miller-avatar

    Have only used the app occasionally to record programs on my DVR. After the latest update the app has been using 25% of my battery without ever accessing the app and it constantly crashed when I am using other apps. Since it can't be deleted from my AT&T Galaxy S7 phone I ended up disabling it.

  55. Michael Achamyeleh-avatar

    Samsung S6 & G2 watch. Works well with my gene box. I like the all in one option, beats having multiple apps like comcast. I like the remote app on the watch even better.

  56. Teresa Szydelko-avatar

    Teresa Szydelko


    Not sure if this is the app that's causing this box to come up constantly that says unfortunately direct TV has stopped. It's driving me frigging crazy.

  57. Lyn Murray-avatar

    Totally worthless unless you have a brand new reciever. . .utter garbage and bloatware. Boo-Hiss AT&T/Directv

  58. Susie Story-avatar

    If I could give it no stars I would. I have to add it manually but it will not validate the IP address.

  59. Christopher Cormier-avatar

    Christopher Cormier


    Garbage. And keeps starting on its own and gives a error message it has shut down.

  60. Melody Franklin-avatar

    I dont watch TV.. I cannot uninstall. Hate it.

  61. Kevin Coffey-avatar

    App that I don't use constantly crashing. Junk.

  62. Katie Justine-avatar

    I disabled it when I fit this phone and now it keeps piping up that it has stopped working. It's rather annoying!

  63. Bonni D-avatar

    I don't use Direct TV and I never will so I don't want this garbage app taking up space on my phone

  64. Jenn Walker-avatar

    I don't even have direct tv and don't want it, or the app, on my phone. Unfortunately, it won't even let me uninstall it! Ugh!!👎

  65. Kamikaze-avatar

    I hate that i cannot get rid of this app. Yes I can disable it but i won't use it ever and want it gone. Dan bloatware

  66. Michael Villalba-avatar

    Michael Villalba


    Can I... Oh, I don't know, control the box perhaps. Really, can I do anything besides pause and fast forward? Thx.

  67. L V-avatar

    How is this remote helpful if all you can do is pause, rewind and fast forward. Actual DirecTV app is much better.

  68. Douglas Moore-avatar

    I don't like the bloat ware but even on top of that it doesn't have enough functions.

  69. Clay Anderson-avatar

    No matter how many times i uninstall this app. It always seems to download itself again

  70. WJ McGrath-avatar

    I can't get rid of the damned thing. I'm considering dumping ATT

  71. Jason Lee-avatar

    I paid almost a grand for the phone. At least leave it alone. Apple shouldn't be the only ones that can stop it.

  72. Darren Harper-avatar

    Pre-loaded, uninstallable apps shouldn't exist. Stop it, AT&T.

  73. Rocky Velazco-avatar

    I don't want it...I don't need it....but I'm stuck with this crap....using MY data to update this unwanted nonsense

  74. Lori Hunt-avatar

    I hate this app, keeps crashing!😠

  75. Ethan Brown-avatar

    To me this app is useless and is a piece of crap that I want off my phone

    It keeps popping up with a "stop working message " I don't even use it.

  78. A Google user-avatar

    Reminders of direct tv app closing happen every 30 seconds. Its obnoxious

  79. A Google user-avatar

    I don't watch TV, don't have time, takes up valuable space on my phone.

  80. Mark P-avatar

    Didn't do much of anything when I installed it, and now nothing works.

  81. A Google user-avatar

    I never wanted it in the first place but some how I can't deactivated it either. I think in the future ask customers if they want it should be a choose..very pissed off

  82. Laura L-avatar

    Worthless app that I can't uninstall. Don't have direct TV, don't want it. Don't want this app.

    Worst app. Crashes a lot. It keeps telling me... direct tv has stopped.... like 100 times a day, even if u don't use it. It is very annoying. Also u can not get rid of it.... delete it. It will say... turn it off. ... but does not say : delete it.

  91. A Google user-avatar

    With recent updates it crashes every 5 minutes and now it won't let me uninstall it. Awful!
