"Manage Your Direct TV Account"

Reviewed by / Apr 10, 2015

Set up your DVR and watch DirecTV from your phone.


The DirecTV app lets you manage your DVR from anywhere you have internet or data. You can set to record or extend finish time so if the game runs over, you don't miss the last quarter. It also allows you to watch *some* of your favorite shows and recordings, although this feature is very glitchy. While it has a very limited amount of channels available to watch on the go, it does give you access to most of the premium favorites.


The app lets you manage your DVR from anywhere so you never miss your favorite show. You can modify record times and watch a limited amount of channels from your phone.


The app does not give you access to the majority of what you record or the channels you can watch at home. Even if it did, the streaming feature is buggy at best.

    I like the ability to schedule records from anywhere. I dislike the "live streaming" feature. As others have noted, it's very limited unless you are at home on the same network as your receiver. The other issue I have is, I get the message "in order to tune to this channel, your phone must be connected to the same network as your receiver" and the "watch on phone" bar is greyed out. My phone IS on

    Update 2015: still sucks with new WiFi "insufficient bandwidth" error. Sucks! Too many "not available now" messages when I try live streaming. Just too many!
