Editors’ Notes

Movies, shows, news, sports: you name it, DIRECTV NOW has it. It’s all the channels we already subscribe to—like ESPN, HBO, Nickelodeon—but available on the go. And a clean interface makes browsing stations a pleasure.

Go big channel lineup is the only thing good


Satisfied with the channel lineup. That's the only reason I'm staying since the buffering and on demand stinks. Shows delayed a week past airfare.... or never shows up. If hitting replay it may screen freeze as audio continues, or jump forward in audio while the visual forwards at fast speed to catch up without knowing how much was missed. Favorited channels keep deleting between Appletv app and iPad/iPhone which just today were completely wiped out without warning. Cannot see another channel's show info if currently playing without switching to the channel completely. No last channel or recent channel/show shortcut meaning if switching between two shows you must launch the guide and scroll completely through again. No reminder or auto switch to channels for shows you want to watch coming up. Lately bringing up the guide is unusable as it won’t scroll or let you move along the guide for minutes meaning if switching between shows you miss content as you’ll have to exit repeatedly sometimes 5-10 minutes before you can get back to the previous channel.
My best solution so far is to use the ipad app and cast to Chromecast because the Appletv app and Roku app are so infuriating.
If slingtv packages had tennis channel I'd be back there in a second. Used slingtv for a year across all platforms and it worked so much better.

Chromecast support is here finally

Supermario 27

Updated: Chromecast support for iOS is finally here! I'm upgrading the stars from 2 to 3 there's still bugs that need to be ironed out with iOS Chromecast support but the it's headed in the right direction.

As someone who's used this service since the first 30 days of its startup. The service has become more and more reliable. Still far from perfect but improvements have been noticed. Filed a FCC complaint in the early stages of the service which was resolved quickly with a 3 month credit ( Go Big plan) and free HBO for a year. If you were a early adopter you pay $35 currently now $60. As far as the app like I mentioned with each update it's getting better and better. Your problem is you have a lot of "cord cutters" here and majority use Chromecast but the iOS version supports no such thing website says coming soon for months, airplay only. While google play version has it. Now I'm assuming they had some sort of exclusivity with Apple during the promotional free Apple TV with 3 months prepaid. That promotion is now OVER. CAN WE PLEASE HAVE CHROMECAST SUPPORT ON IOS?! 2 stars until then. Otherwise keep improving the other aspects of the app like you are.
