What is DirecTV? A review

This is nothing short of your cable tv in hand. More than ever, it is possible to move around with your cable tv today if you are unable to sit and watch from the comfort of your home. Direct TV makes this possible through their app. 

Directv is your on the go streaming software for all of your favourite shows, football games, news, movies and whatever you may wish to binge on. If you have a Direct TV cable at home, this may be easier for you to do as all you need to do is connect your current subscription to your phone. But in the case of a complete newbie who's looking for a way to stream premium cable TV, all you need to do is download the app and make sure to have a steady internet connection. 

Next thing to do is have a subscription and this isn't hard to get. Follow the onscreen instructions and you'll find yourself picking the best plan and launching into the better world of digital entertainment.

Direct TV isn't such a difficult software to navigate. You get to enjoy live shows at any time of the day and even watch and record your best shows for rewatch later. All these you can do with access to over 45,000 content. I mean, that's so much more than you could possibly watch in just one day. And that's for the most basic package.

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Almost perfect

    By Mechatronial (Pcmac user)

    This app is very useful especially if you are an individual using AT&T mobile services. It allows you to stream your the app channels away from home and it works most of the time. One of the best features of this app is the ability to download and/or stream any recorded shows/programs that are on the receiver at home from about anywhere there’s a strong enough phone signal. With that being said, there are a few things that could improve; for instance, finding a way to be able to stream blacked out events (generally, as it’s not just a the app and AT&T issue), and making it a smoother experience to stream recorded shows and programs as there’s a tendency for it to take a while before loading the contents. Overall this app is very useful especially considering how important we (consumers) think it is to be able to access a service we are paying for outside of our home.
  • Many technicalities

    By melaninonfleek (Pcmac user)

    This app is needs an entire makeover. Let’s start with the fact that it takes FOREVER to load. no other tv app on my phone is like that, then sometimes the tv shows I was watching will disappear from under the continue watching section. Like it’s 2018 my shows should NOT be disappearing, then when I go to rewatch the show that disappeared it sometimes won’t let you fast forward to where you left off at, so I have to rewatch the entire show again.🤦🏾‍♀️ (which I won’t do). also sometimes when you binge watch shows back to back the app will let you skip commercials and guess what instead of just jumping back to the tv screen it’ll basically hop to each commercial but don’t play it & THEN the show will come back on. Y’all do realize when it does that it takes as much time as a commercial does. Also what’s the point of having tv shows up there that I can’t watch ? And I’m not talking about premium channel shows either. The entire saved by the bell show was listed but I couldn’t watch it. hmmm let’s see oh yea and STOP PLAYING THE SAME COMMERCIALS. NO ONE WANTS TO WAYCH THE SAME COMMERCIAL OVER AND OVER AND OVER. You all also need to fix the FOX channel because it doesn’t work on my phone/app with none of my devices. I had to download the actual fox app. This app also freezes too much and I think that’s about it. You all need some serious help if you want me to come to corporate I’ll be more than happy to help make you all become more efficient and effective.
  • DIRECTV’s Television Interface

    By Godfatherbeach (Pcmac user)

    Not only is that app for your phone or iPad extremely glitchy, but the app’s new television interface is horrendous. I have the app wired directly from my Satellite dish to a Mini Genie, and am appalled at the menu changes. Currently, though “prettier”, One can no longer Mark a position in a playback or live show with the push of one button in order to return to it at a later date; the bottom area of the screen is blacked out for quite a few seconds if one pauses, backs up, or rewinds, etc. This is particularly distressing when watching sports channels, where one might want to continue to see the bottom 1/4th of the screen And view the “crawl” for the score, or continuing updates of other games, etc. The previous interface, largely analog, with a simple menu across the left-hand side, very intuitively allowed one to “Search“, “Record“, “settings” “manage recordings”, etc., without all of the pretty pictures, and repetition which now takes up over 75% of the right-hand side of the interface which use to freeze the show one was actually watching. Whatever happened to testing with real life people and keeping the ergonomics simple??. A thoroughly outrageous and Horrendous interface. GO BACK TO THE PREVIOUS INTERFACE the app !!! Or, we all go to another carrier . We expect much better from the app and from AT&T.
  • Screwed Royally!

    By nicknametried (Pcmac user)

    DON’T DO IT!!! Well at start up..promised you the world and ended up with just a 2 year contract!! Tried to move service to an RV and told we needed all the same equipment. In the end found out home equipment isn’t even compatible with an RV. Now being charged for services that were not even used due to being in storage due to inaccurate information!!! Spent two and a half hours on phone with multiple people trying to resolve issue and ended up speaking with a supervisor named Latanna just to be informed she can only give a $25 credit! We have been with AT&T for years and depending on what suits the company best depends on when they are the same company. Tried everything to resolve this issue and in so many words being informed that customers continuing being customers does NOT matter. We will never be a customer again and rethink our phone service! Fortunately we haven’t signed a new phone service with all of our equipment so we will renew our 4 phones with another company! Rethink before you sign with this company!!! Asked supervisor for corporates phone number and was informed they are NOT allowed to give the number out. What kind of company is not available to their customers?? Is this really the way a company conducts business? Why don’t they want to hear from customers? I’m telling you rethink!!!
