Features Review

On Smaller Screens, With the Same Quality

It would be funny to start this DirecTV review with a strange feature frequently present in Chinese fake iPhones in the late 2000s: most of them had an analog TV receiver, with a hidden antenna. Now your authentic iPhone can have a built-in TV as well, though a digital one, of course. If you’re a DirecTV customer, you can use this app and watch your favorite channels on your iPhone or iPad with no extra fee.

Starting with $35/mo, DirecTV delivers from 155+ up to 330+ channels, so you can always find something worthy on. The app requires your DirecTV credentials you enter as you log in with your satellite receiver, and good Internet connection (Wi-Fi optimally, but AT&T users can enjoy it with no data charges).

This particular app is made for iPhone; there is a separate one utilizing larger screen of iPad. The app can be used both for watching TV on your iPhone screen and for controlling your TV, as it allows for use to use it as an advanced remote control. It has a special widget for quick access. Another reason to download DirecTV is its built-in TV guide as well, with marking the shows you want to watch later.

Digitalization offers new dimensions in TV experience. You can record your favorite shows to watch them later, or create a playlist for streaming them on-demand.

Does It Work As Supposed?

Alas, the app seems to be too glitchy when it comes to real usage. Sometimes I experienced problems with connecting it to the server, resulting in no connection at all until I restarted my iPhone. Other users say it doesn’t handle commercials properly, though in recorded shows it should detect and skip them. Anyway, most users who download DirecTV app seem to never encounter these troubles, so let’s keep them in mind as possible and enjoy it while it works.

Pros

🔵 Full TV experience;

🔵 Live mode, on-demand streaming, recording with your DVR;

🔵 Free data for AT&T users;

🔵 Remote control mode for your TV, with Apple Watch support.

Cons

🔵 Makes no sense without DirecTV subscription;

🔵 Issues with loading and connecting reported.
