Reviews From google play store

Pretty good but doesn't get all channels and charges for tv shows that are free at home. Also, doesn't synch with home DVR.

I'm away from home so naturally I want to watch my recording. However it tells me I can't because I'm not on my home network....if I was on my home network is watch it on my home tv. Dumbest app ever. Half the channels can't stream and apparently DVR is irrelevant. Wish I still had dish it wasn't a problem streaming on that app. Bogus service feature. Shoulda passed on direct


Video needs to optimize too often

Great show to watch

This app is pathetically bad.

Very nice streaming experience fast and I haven't experienced a crash or error messages. Update recently the DirecTV app has been having video streaming issues can't stream the majority of the live channels Authorizing message just stays on. I think ever since I upgraded to android 10.

My live TV will not load on my mobile phone

The Direct TV app is pitiful. Cannot schedule a recording when away from home. Cannot watch a recorder program away from the gome network. Why am I paying so much??

This app is awful. It crashes constantly or gives me constant errors. Other times I would have the screen freeze no matter what kind of reception I have. I've finally given up and deleted it.

Not what I hoped for.

Direct tv makes it easier than ever to take tv anywhere and watch it anytime.Thanks for keeping us up to date!

Can't cast to the tv. Basically the only media app I have ever seen that you can't cast to a tv. Even Spotify you can cast.


A lot of channels don't work.

Occasional picture loss, otherwise a good app

I don't get all my subscribed channels!!

trying to watch Astros game, which I was watching 5 minutes earlier, and now I can't watch it. I can watch other stations, just not fs1.

Terrible, always freezing and buffering no matter where you r, sucks

App is good when you can access TV channels.

Cuts out regularly, channels become unavailable regularly, and sound quality is horrible.

Can never watch on my phone if I'm not home

To many channels not working

Won't let me watch half the channels I have subscribe to tried to watch the yankees game just to have it cut out in the 2nd inning and now i cant even find fs1 to start watching the game again nothing but problem with direct TV you guys are terrible i advise everyone to leave direct TV right now and stay gone much cheaper and better option

The app never synced properly to my TV list. The live stream always shows "cannot stream at this time". When calling for help with app I couldn't get a good response. Paid way too much for stupid issues!

It is very slow to respond and doesn't stay connected also say something is blacked out when its not


Cause I updated my phone now the app just completely stopped working. I have a pixel 3 XL before the update it was so cool having my favorite channels on the go. But now I use it like a remote. The joy is all gone now! Help bring the fun back to my phone please.

You have to have wifi....

Half way through a program, the app will stop working. I try to watch a program from the night before and it isn't always available.

Said I can't connect unless I am on the same network as my tv. How does that make sense


Just sits there and says authorizing and never loads anything......garbage app

Constantly freezes, won't load a stream, the interface is terrible. There's literally nothing good on it. At first I thought I was exaggerating but this is literally the worst application/service I have EVER used. One would think that a big corporation like DIRECTV has the capacity to develop a decent functional platform, but both the mobile app and the web version (who uses flash player in 2019?) are terrible.

Just wish I could watch the local channels

Please make this app work with Android 10 beyond ESPN channels... Nothing else works

Can't watch all shows from a phone. It must be on TV only. VERY Disappointing.

Doesn't work well, real glitchy

Sucks, always kicks you off the app.

Won't open on my android phone. Id/password all good.


Very inconsistent! Nice when it works!

It will not authorized.


I don't like that it buffers a lot but I like being able to watch my shows on the go. Now I'm getting the message there is a problem with the program. What is going on? The app doesn't allow the regular stations to be seen on the go. CBS, NBC, FOX, ION, etc. Why is that? Only ABC can be seen.

I travel and this app is my little bit of home while I'm on the road. Thanks.



Never works anymore, always stuck on authorizing 👎

Optimizing too much

Wont open

DVR doesn't ever reflect actual recorded shows. Guide is not user friendly

Doesn't work!

Cant get the app to open

Legacy DirecTV satellite account, can't sign in after dozens of calls, password renewals and a trip to an att corporate store with my 87 year old father who signed up for this and with whom I live. So not getting the entire service he's paying for.

Pretty much what everyone else has said. Can't watch live tv on this app at all. Att doesn't care.

Love it ❤

Poor experience. Content cannot be played right now

Stuck on authorizing can't get past that screen also a pixel user

Lousy, takes forever to come up then says you can't watch at this time🤬😡😠

Slow and does not give all the channels in my package

Not all my channels be playing

AT&T removed the ability to watch certain channels away from your home network. The only reason I use this app is to watch TV away from my home network. If I'm at home I just watch my TV.

I am starting to use the APP more and more. Either I am getting smarter or they are making it more user friendly. I don't leave home without it.

Be. My. First. Time. On. Here.

Data-free tv on the go ROCKS,,!!! The other day I was on the road going out of town and wouls have missed my favorite game if not for the directv on my tablet. Go ATT, goooo!!!!

Great app! Let you watch your favorite shows .

Updated my rating from one star to five stars it works tremendously well now thank you so much!

We have connectivity issues and the wireless genies freeze. App on my phone won't work correctly. Did at one time then quit.

50 percent of the time you can't watch the show you want, especially sports, frustrating!

This App sucks ass


Love it

I prefer 0 stars. The list of "My Channels" is incomplete. Rarely will it stream live channels. Can't stream anything from my DVR unless I'm connected to my home network. And lately the app won't even open.

App is constantly saying content cannot be played at this time try to restart reboot same problem

Constantly cuts off or says it is unable to connect. It would be great if it ever worked.

My channels rarely come in. I don't even consider it a feature in my package. Spend all this money and maybe a few channels will work. Makes me want to change providers.

Pretty impressive. Just wish I could watch all the channels on my phone that I get on tv

I have not heard from u fir months i ha e been trying to get the ballgame back on my tv poor servive. Not happ.y..


It is slow to load. It has restricted ability to play recorded shows. Xfinity is much more flexible and easier to use.

It's good


It never works. For years and years. Horrible software

Love this app

User friendly app , nice to have my direct TV on the go with my smart phone.

I can only get ESPN. No other channels will load

For a 50 minute program it takes about 3 hours to watch it. It keeps repeating the beginning of the story.

Never works any more. Won't load.. total garbage really.

Can't log in to my account

Sucks. I don't get all the channels I pay for!

DirecTV sucks since ATT purchased it!!! Customer service is limited, the app is ok, but I can NEVER watch the live TV programs that are included in my package I PAY for!!!

Good programming. Still a few quirks with the app but good enough for 4 stars.

Started watching a movie and cant get back to it!

I'm always able to watch my shows

Could watch anything. It stinks ???? Just like at home

Impossible to get what you pay for.

I am in a 4G area and can not wat h tv. Very dissatisfied


Able to watch directv from my phone. Hopefully streaming is free

These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

precise location (GPS and network-based)
Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine where you are, and may consume additional battery power.
