DIRECTV's review

    Published: 2015-04-10, by .

    Set up your DVR and watch DirecTV from your phone.

    • Manage DVR
    • Watch premium shows
    • Streaming very buggy
    • Limited channels available

    "Manage Your Direct TV Account"


    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.

    It is a really cool app that I can watch TV shows right from my TV when I'm not even at my house

    It states online the direct tv carries Rawhide on tv, but after many surches it's impossible to get a straight answer. There are 330 channels in Direct tv, over 30 of them are home shopping & infomercial then they count another 100 channels that are the pay per view channels so in actuality you are getting like 200 channels. write the news, sonicmusic and sports channels the number goes down from there. Less than 150 of actual viewable stations. I lost most of my westerns, especially, Rawhide. Sorry I am just dissatisfied with the service so far. So comparing that 150 channels to the 500+ I used to have on Uverse it's more difficult to settle down at night.
