GenieGo pointless

The offline viewing requires connectivity almost all the time. Yes that's a contradictory requirement hence the 2 stars. I've been stuck on a 7 day cruise without being able to watch the 20 tv programs I painstakingly loaded on my iPad and a 4 hour flight also without being able to watch any offline programs. This is a complete fail of major functionality since DirecTV dumped the dedicated GenieGo app. "Watching offline" can't be claimed if, in fact, the app requires internet access to watch your paid-for downloaded shows.

As of the latest update in Sept 2015, the app now crashes if you attempt run it when there's no Internet or you're in airplane mode. It would be nice if DirecTV actually tested their basic features before pushing them out to customers. But hey, at least we now get DirecTV advertisements that slow down the app launch.

It's OK

I hate that every time I open my Direct TV app it kept telling me to write a review. There is room for improvement, but for the most part I have had no trouble watching TV on the go(as long as the signal is decent).

I would recommend stop telling me to write a review if I don't want to. Have a button that if you don't want to write a review have a button to stop reminding people to write a review. It is stupid. I warn people not to get the app because every time you open your browser it keeps prompting you incessantly to write a review. The app is not that great, and is a pain to use. The app would probably be better if you did not force people to write a review.

Don't get hooked on a show, episodes disappear.

During my morning cardio, I count on watching my DirectTV app to help the time pass quickly. I enjoyed a new sitcom which started out with 2 full seasons available to watch. Suddenly overnight, it dwindled to one season, then, only a few episodes. So I thought I found a new show. I paused the pilot (one hour) and attempted to resume watching the next morning, and the episode was no longer available. Frustrating.
