    The fact that I have to be connected to my HOME NETWORK in order to stream live TV is completely RIDICULOUS! Get with the times. I pay a lot of money for a service that is so limiting. In addition, the minimal functionality available doesn't even work. The app won't even connect to the receiver....Winning.

    What a piece of crap from a company that is so successful. I don't think anyone bothered to check if this app even worked. Then if you are patient enough to wade through the multiple logins, you would be disappointed in that you have to be in range of you're wifi. Doesn't seem to work without the needed wifi. And this app wants to post all of you're business on the net. Don't even bother downloadi

    You have to be at home to watch anything. If I am home, I'm going to watch on my tv, not my phone. Directv once again disappoints.
