    For now you can just browse to m.directv.com and schedule a recording. It's not the same as the iPhone app. I too hope they develop an app for Android.

    There is an app called "TV.com", but be forewarned... it doesn't play full length shows. (not as far as I can tell anyway.) It plays 3 minute clips, just like Vcast does. :(

    I suggest that DTV/android users contact their customer service and reply on the post in their forums , let them know that there are a lot of androids users out there

    No it does not allow you to watch tv. Maybe they were thinking of slingbox app. I don't see an equivalent app in market place. I have the superfan app, but that's for sunday ticket subscribers only.

    This is the app i was curios about. i could not find a similar app for droid either


    I have the superfan package and for some reason i was assuming that this wasnt avialble for droid so i never checked. i am glad someone pointed this out to me :)

    droid is getting better and better!

    Never heard of an iphone app for directv that lets you watch tv, besides the Superfan of course. Only app Directv has is for checking schedules and working your DVR, it never let you watch anything.

    To watch tv you need a sling box. I have no idea if it works with the droid.

    Yes I get this error a fair amount of time. I think it happens when the connection isn't strong enough. Just keep trying, and eventually it should connect.

    Last night I found a DirecTV app in the market. Looks like it was just added. Has been working well for me so far.

    Just got Directv installed and installed the App on my HTC Hero. Works fine except I get an error when scheduling a season pass.

    Are there any fixes scheduled for the DirecTv application for the EVO? I installed in, and get errors when it tries to record a show. The app worked perfectly on my Palm Pre.

    It is nice for recording, but is there an app that lets you view whats on your dvr and edit or delete shows??

    To watch, edit or delete - Slingbox.
