This app needs to be removed  Thomas carey harp  1 star

I cannot even log in to the app because I typed in my password wrong one time and then every time u open the app it directs u to the App Store. I have deleted the app and opened it again but it says the same thing that my information is incorrect try again but I cannot try it again because it sent me to the App Store. This isn’t my first problem with the app and I’ve had enough of it.

No Local Channels stream live on the app


App just crashes at login  Hymrickvonhymen  1 star

Sign in using correct username and password just to get an unknown error which directs me to the App Store by default. This all happens as a result of updating to the latest release. Don’t update if you have an iPhone 8 on latest iOS 12.xx

mh unhappy

Not a working app  mh unhappy  1 star

Ok so I have an IPhone 8 and my Direct Tv app keeps telling me that my email doesn’t exist and to try again. So I press ok and it takes me back to the App Store. Uuugh I have been dealing with this for months now. I call Direct tv and they tell me it’s my phone that is not working. Any suggestions???? ANYone?!?!


Love it but...  Angielaaa17  5 star

I love watching but hate when I have to go to a diff area in my phone and then need to search for my program and hope it resumes where I left off


Terrible  seasalli  1 star

So so bad. Direct TV and this app has gone from pretty good to just plain terrible. I have spent many hours on the phone with Direct TV customer service, technical service , etc. This app is a joke. I cannot steam any recorded programs from this app on my new 6th generation iPad. After installation of their Geni 2 and my new iPad, I still cannot stream any recordings. So, so frustrating. Luckily, I can stream from many other different companies via their apps, i.e. Hallmark app, Netflix app, iTunes ,etc. but not this company. Oh no, they cannot get it together since AT&T took over Direct TV. UGH

1982 Matt

Not happy with app at all  1982 Matt  1 star

Had direct tv last year and was really happy with the app. Had to get rid of direct tv then got it back again a few months ago. Have tried getting the app to launch for the past few months and keep getting an error message. Very frustrating. No idea what’s wrong with app. Have updated to the newest version and nothing changes.


Disappointed  Smeebugs  1 star

The app takes forever to open and load. I don’t know why it doesn’t save my info when u get on the app to log in someone needs to fix the bug fixes or something. Cuz this is frustrating. And I travel away from home a lot. And I can’t even use this app to record shows!!!!


Garbage  christina7735  1 star

This app makes me want to throw my phone across the room! I have deleted and redownloaded multiple multiple times, and it still CRASHES every. single. time. So frustrating.


Awful  DirectDumbness  1 star

This app will not let me sign in even though I know my information and changed the password. It says error then blinks me to the AppStore to attempt to re download it.


Can’t access on my phone  lupe1959  1 star

I can’t access direct tv on my phone, I call for help and get some that is in another country, that can’t help. All I get is reset your password.


If I could rate less than 1 star I would  Beer65789  1 star

This is by far the worst app in the history of apps. I cannot wait to switch to dish.


App stinks  dukeofearl70  1 star

This app stinks. I’ve had Directv for 2 months or more, called Directv, and nobody can get my app to pull-up on my iOS devices

30something +

Unreliable  30something +  1 star

It takes for ever to load. It freezes constantly. You have to open and close the app to and three times before it will quit initializing. It’s not worth the frustration of trying to watch until they fix bugs.


Customer service is trash  OFFINTHEBARN  4 star

Not gonna get into detail but just wait until you have a billing issue and you will see where I’m coming from. I gave it 4 stars for the app in general but DTV in a while is a rip off but I’ll continue to pay lol


Poor  Jaccksplace  1 star

Needs an overhaul. I constantly have to delete n re download to get anything to work. The same annoying problems have been going on for 2 years and no fixes. Great work for a tech company!?!?👎🏼🤬


Completely Broken  gbmccut  1 star

The app does not work at all. AT&T and Direct TV need to fix their broken apps or I am going somewhere else. The apps have been broken since began service with AT&T and Direct TV.
