User reviews of DIRECTV

    Almost perfect

    This app is very useful especially if you are an individual using AT&T mobile services. It allows you to stream your Directv 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 Directv 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.

    Nothing comes close

    Being able to live around the United States in so many different places experiencing all that there is, there’s no other experience better than DirecTV and AT&T. Both are the dominant leaders in each market not only because of their strive to do what is best for their customers in part by what they have to offer, but by the uncompromising level of customer service they bring to the table over and over and over again. Other networks say they do this and do that only to truly be hypocritical of others in so many ways, but I’m my experience in many years now in service we have been given the red carpet treatment through and through. There isn’t a cable company, nor cell phone carrier that’ll ever be able to give you the quality customer care that you’ll be given within Directv and At&t. Not Comcast, not Verizon, not Charter, DEFINATELY NOT LIARS AND STEALERS SPRINT, not anyone. To be fair, At&t back in the day experimented with using third party contractors which I believe led to loss of customer base, so years recently in the area I live in currently the contractors are now all At&t employees and the service now rendered is a ten fold turnaround. So if you were an unlucky victim of those third party hacks, try back soon and you’ll see a change of the way business with them is done. We did, and so, our venture with both At&t and Directv has been a marvelous one.

    Selecting a TV show or movie.

    So it fair for my comments I think I should say I’ using the app on and iPhone 6 that’s using the iOS version 11.2.1. With out making the thumbs nails smaller I’m not sure how you get more on the screen, but as I’m seeing four of every category then as I try and skip ahead with in the category it will only load the next 3 the get hung up and then spend thirty to sixty seconds trying to reconnect. So the app can reload the same thumb nails. Happens a lot in the Live category. I am only make the assumption that it is updating the app because live TV is that. Live TV, so it must update. Yet, it is very annoying. I watch a certain sport show that’s broadcast live on the app starting at 9:00 AM CST and ends at 12:00CST and and once it’s going J don’t have that many issues, but with the constant reloading of the thumbnails makes me be like a ninja swiping from right to left trying to reach my TV show before it makes the decision to reset and then start the list over. That’s is really frustrating. I have more, but I’m sure people have fallen asleep by now.

    DIRECTV’s Television Interface

    Not only is that app for your phone or iPad extremely glitchy, but DIRECTV’s new television interface is horrendous. I have DIRECTV 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 DIRECTv !!! Or, we all go to another carrier . We expect much better from DIRECTV and from AT&T.
