Waste of time Big waste of time...if i'm able to access the channels I'm paying for, I should be able to watch them on my tablet. Why roll out a product that is not fully capable of working for everyone. The channels I watch are not available on tablets, phones, or computers. CONFUSED!!!!Because computers are why we are able to do all wifi, wireless, streaming...WHATS UP DIRECTV...GET IT TOGETHER

Needs help Nice as a guide and tuned for some stations but some stations say a program is not playing and won't tune even though it is on. Streaming is too slow. I can watch shows on crackle and similar apps but not on here. Uses too much bandwidth.

Useless So let me get this straight, I pay for Directv, but I cannot watch all shows on my tablet, from inside my house? Fail. Over half of our recorded shows can't be played on anything but the TV. FAIL.

No point in using this app I downloaded this app so I could watch my shows on the DVRs but most of them can only be watched on the TV. If I can only watch them on the TV then I don't need the app. The few I could watch would pause for longer than it would play for. I uninstalled this app.
