Default Direct TV app

Well I'm finally leaving cable and going Direct TV on Monday. Direct TV says with their app I can watch any of the channels I subscribe to on my Droid X. Does anyone have any experience with this app.

Its so you can record shows when youre away from the house.
Pretty cool too cause, in my case, I can find a show I want or a game and choose to record that in the family room, set a cool military documentary to record in my bedroom and in the exercise room, and just the Soprano reruns in the exercise room. Pretty versatile.
Depending on the amount of DVRs you have you can select the ones you want.

Thats all it does though. You cant watch tv via the app

I was told by the salesman that I could stream all the DirecTV channels using the app. They are installing my system on Monday so I'll keep you updated.

Let's us know what app bc the DTV app from the market is just to set your DVR not to stream and only NFL subs can stream and that's for any device with data option.

I think you got lied to. I have the top HD DVR that directv has and there is no streaming. All you can do with the app is set programs to record or order PPV. I wish I could stream my Directv to my phone!

I also subscribe to just about every channel you can on DTV

As others have stated, someone wasn't straight with you. You can only set recordings from the app.

To stream the NFL you have to buy NFL Sunday Ticket, then pay even more for the Super Fan package. Then NFL streaming is done with the NFL Superfan app, not the regular Directv app.

You can stream the red zone channel on Sundays which is awesome, and you can stream Sunday night and Monday night games. I think you will be able to stream Thursday night games too once they start.

You get live audio of all the individual games.

Directv does work with Slingbox...

But, I know Direct with there new receivers is working on streaming recorded shows...

They are in BETA format as we speak, as they just launched Windows Media Centre to be able to watch anything you record in any part of your home on your computer.

Anyone know what happened to the direct TV app? I just direct TV installed yesterday and now the app is not showing up in the market. I know I had seen it in the market before from my phone (samsung epic).

I have DirecTV and to be able to stream to the X you need to pay an additional $10/month for DirecTV to go. Otherwise the app will just allow to you program your DVR, order movies, pay bill and other general account functions

This is straight from that site:

Search for any television show up to 14 days in advance
Browse programs by channel or date & time
Get program information instantly, including description, length and rating
Record a single episode or an entire series
Order DIRECTV CINEMA™ right on your phone (available for iPhone, Android, Palm, and BlackBerry), no need to have your receiver connected to a phone line
Record to any DIRECTV DVR in your home


Where does it say anything about streaming to your phone??

On that page also is the NFL streaming, but that is only NFL games, and that is A LOT more than $10/month.

You still cannot stream normal channels to your phone. The only thing possible at this point is to stream RedZone on Sundays and Monday nights. Obviously the technology exists so it is only a matter of time until we see streaming of mainline channels but for now Directv will not do it. Just trying to clear up any confusion....

If you were referring to NFL RedZone, I get that free with the NFL mobile app. It has nothing to do with Directv.

Directv is Beta Testing "Nomad" which will allow you to have Directv To Go. Whether it will be Streaming or Offloading Content to your device prior to leaving home remains to be seen but it may be both. We should know within 30 days.

Thats all it does though. You cant watch tv via the app
not only that, you can aslo see 250+ channels.. depends on how good your satellite tv offers is.. but im sure that you wont regret it..
