Bad enough I can't stream shows out of the house because I need to bee on the same network but sometimes I have a lot of stream channels and most of the time I don't. All those streaming channels and no ESPN? Or an agreement thru the ESPN app? Directv is not a provider for the app so we can't watch ESPN on the go of any kind away from our houses? Why am I paying over $200 a month for this? I don't know or like dish but they are trying real hard lately....where is our ESPN on the go?
Good but not great
I like the Direct TV app when it actually works. Sometimes it's more like a radio than actual TV. Movies will work fine, but once I TRY to watch a tv show it won't allow me to. All I get to see is a screen saying "insufficient bandwidth" which is extremely annoying when I really want to watch a game and I'm not home. So, all i can do it listen to the game. I feel like direct tv needs to fix these problems.
Does not work remotely
You have to be home to access all features of this DirecTv app. You have to be on the same wifi network at the house to access your Playlist. Not all shows are streaming to watch because you're not on the same wifi network at home. Not all shows are set to stream on devices, i.e., you may not be able to watch your favorite show on your cell. If you're home, then you can watch all shows, & you can use this DirecTv app as a remote control.
