DIRECTV user reviews :
I’ve been searching for an application like this for a while and this exceeds my expectations. There’s nothing you can’t do with this app!
Such a gigantic improvement compared to the other DirecTV app. Fantastic interface and video streaming actually worked(been trying to get the other DirecTV app to stream for a year)
This really separates DirecTV from the other television providers. One thing that I would like to see added is a widget that shows a guide containing favorite channels.
This application has access to the following:
- Just talk as you would to a person and the app finds what you’re looking for.
- Search for programs by mentioning title, channel, keyword, actor, time frame, genre and more.
- Switch to TV mode to see your dialogue and search results on your TV screen. HD DVR (HR24+) required. Your phone and HD DVR must be connected to same Wi-Fi network.
- See personalized recommendations as soon as you switch to TV mode.
