Why can’t I open DirecTv on my iPads? I have spent hours on the phone trying to get help.


App not working  frustrated100999  1 star

I guess the last update broke this app. It hasn’t allowed me to log in since the update.


Terrible  chris89012  1 star

It want let me log in but I can on the website.


It worked...until it didn’t...  RH616  2 star

Don’t know what happened over the weekend but I can’t log in anymore. My username and password hasn’t changed, yet it doesn’t recognize my account. I keep being redirected to the App Store. I have already uninstalled and reinstalled and verified that my login info is still correct.

Terrible App  Constantly frustrated!  1 star

Forces you to redo password and then won’t take the new one. Also won’t let you delete it off you iPhone. Not user friendly at all. Not a financial account so NO reason to force you to change your email every few months!


Total makeover  Wallace6206  1 star

I’ve not been able to log in to this ever since I got the IPhone XS Max it tells me that it can’t find my account and then you go and click on the OK it takes you straight over to the App Store. Each and every time it does that, it sends me straight over like I don’t have the app and that is what I was trying to log in too. I went to the AT&T corporate store and they couldn’t figure it out either. It needs to be able to have it to where you can login like you would through the AT&T app. With your phone number and your password. This you can’t do that or your email or anything


Merger  manster18  1 star

Good app  pcueto  5 star

It’s great except it’s hard to reconnect from a phone call.


Login  Ron-A509  1 star

This app I was able to log in about 2 days and now I can’t log in. It says I have invalid characters. Worse app I ever had.


Fast forward  Haylough  5 star

Even if it’s recorded on my DVR, I still have to watch commercials on the app. I wish there were no commercials or that I could at least fast forward through them. I can on the DVR, why not the app?


Is this update a joke?  tiredofatttrash  1 star

Is this “update” a bad joke or something? My 3rd grade grandson could have done better. Ugg


Issues  Tweety178  1 star

This app can not find my receiver and clearly it is connected to the same network as my phone... FIX THE APP


Horrible  Redskns  1 star

I mean, how long should it take to download my playlist? I’ve been trying for over 30 min now refreshing, closing app, starting over, etc trying to get it to download AGAIN (just like every day before working out). Why does it have to delete my playlist every time I close the app? Ugh!!! So frustrating.


Unfortunate  yoguuur  1 star

I was told that this would be a new way to keep the subscription without the cable boxes however the app is not working at all. I’m very upset and don’t know what to do next.


Ap lost its usefulness  depauws4  1 star

This ap was originally a way to “take your tv with you” but now there is only 1 channel available on my phone and it only has infomercials. Now this ap is useless and the only reason I gave it 1 star is because giving a negative number isn’t an option.


Good concept  chlarson19  1 star

Horrible app... doesn’t show half the shows on my dvr and doesn’t let me watch shows that show available. Just get an error message. When the app does work it’s drains battery way more than other movie/tv apps. Do not recommend.


Unknown Error  Arceus90  2 star

It once worked - now it doesn’t.
