Customer Reviews

Far worse than DISH!

OK, I am a new DirecTV customer. There are things that I like about DirecTV, and things I like about DISH. When it comes to the TV service, both are about even, although I think DISH is slightly better and is less expensive. However, the iPhone and iPad apps are where DirecTV really lays an egg and DISH shines! Aside from the fact that I can't get the DirecTV iPhone app to even load or work on my iPhone 6s, it does work on my iPad, but the licensing, technology, bugginess, etc. is very poor! Even the resolution is bad. The only thing I like about DirecTV or dish iPad/iPhone app is the fact that you can download a program so I you can watch it on an airplane, for example (DISH only streams, however, it rarely crashes). The reason I switched from DISH to DirecTV a simple – UNLIMITED data! I am an AT&T customer, and I have a spouse and three kids that have iPhones that use tons of data. AT&T purchased DirecTV a year or two ago. If you combine your bill, AT&T will give you unlimited data. That is THE reason I am with DirecTV and not DISH! Hopefully Verizon will get smart and purchase DISH network! 👍😃

Disappointing

This app has always been below par in many ways as noted by others. This current upgrade simply degrades the performance in several key aspects. It remains too slow. The remote control function frequently disconnects and cannot find receivers and has to be manually re-engaged. During the times it does connect, instructions result in clunky reactions. Surely AT&T can do much much better.

Similar problems

I had similar problems after the last update. I uninstalled the app and reinstalled now everything works great
