What's New in Version 4.9.601
Thanks for using the DIRECTV app! We’re working hard to improve your experience! Here’s what’s new in this update.
I've used to very much enjoy this App. The connivence, especially when traveling was great. Setting up to record a program was easy. Now, however, if a costly On Demand is available, you can forget about Recording/Watching it for Free. Unless you purchase the program you can not record or watch it, when an On Demand is available. The App said "It's Free to Record". It only Cost to Watch. When an On Demand that Cost, you are not allowed to record/watch the free program, period. No matter what you do, if an On Demand is available you must Pay to watch. There is no other way to watch. Why Must I pay when it's Free to record, and watch for Free? The App has become a Cash Cow for DirecTV only. The Customer is of no concern
Either I missed something or the App was fixed. I can now select either On-Demand or recording when the program plays. So therefore I'm very happy with the App. And I believe you will too
Direct TV, The Winner In Satellite Service
We have been direct tv customers for the past 14 years! In the 14 years that we've had direct tv as our television service provider, there has only been two bad experiences with customer service and one horrible experience with an installation technician... We have enjoyed our television packages and the Channels they provide. The quality and clarity of the picture from the satellite is super clear and free of buffering. We've moved a few times and direct tv ha followed us, on each move. On Final move was from Michigan to Texas and our first question was, is Direct Tv available in this area. Thank You Direct Tv, for providing us numerous years of quality service... You have won our loyalty
Love note to Direct TV
My family and I have been big fans of Direct TV since 2006. Never any hassles. The customer service is outstanding. We have always received what was promised for the price promised, with no 'hidden' fees or increases without our authorization. The quality and variety of viewing options are wonderful. We are kept up to date with all the latest equipment and special deals. Thank you Direct TV for making entertainment a truly enjoyable, carefree experience.
