    Cannot stream programs like you can with Android and IOS. Emailed Directv saying their app is seriously outdated and only received their automated response. Can't wait to get back to Android where supported.

    Allows you to setup recordings, nothing more. cannot watch TV, or movies. I switched to Windows Phone, and this is the result. Windows Phone is great, it's the app development that lacks support. of course there aren't any apps on windows store, because nobody will make. I wouldn't be mad, but try to use the desktop site @ Directv and get sent to a broken Mobile.Site, No way to watch movies from anywhere, unless you have a laptop with internet. I'm giving this 1 star because they don't have 1/2 stars, and it's based solely on development neglect. Change the punchline to "Directv anywhere unless you use a Windows Phone" that's the only device we do not support. Thanks, keep up the rants guys, lets get Windows Phone some market gain.

    With the onset of Universal Apps in the Windows ecosystem, it's past time -please provide parity with ios/android apps.

    Great app! Actually like using this rather than the search function on the box. Great to order movies too.

    Can't watch TV on this app, come on Microsoft you can do it from an Android.

    Would be really nice if it did anything useful. Only thing this has is a less user friendly directory than on the TV! On my wife's Android she can watch shows, program shows and have a useful app, rather than this 2004 version of an app.

    Can anyone say update needed?
  • by Chris 11/15/2014
    Folks need to stop complaining this app doesn't do things it never said it did! I can set my TiVo to record when I'm not home - that's what I want it to do, and it works well. Would give more stars for navigation improvements and more control over recording options (early start, extended stop times).
