DirecTV app for iOS and Android
If you enjoy watching the same TV shows you view in your home on the go on your smartphone, there is of course the DirecTV application for both Android and iOS devices, mobile apps that let you watch all your favourite TV programs whilst on the move.
The DirecTV app enables the user to search for any TV show up to 14-days in advance, see shows descriptions, parental info, suggestions, photos, and cast and crew, and record shows by single episode or complete series to any DirecTV DVR in your home.
The DirecTV app for iOS and Android allows the user to browse movies on DirecTV based on category, set recordings to view DirecTV Cinema movies so you can watch any time, order events and movies without the receiver connected to your phone line, and add an additional time to begin and end a recording request, or select manual record.
With the DirecTV mobile app you can browse thousands of on demand titles, share what you are watching via Twitter and Facebook, and get information and set recordings from Facebook and Twitter friends who have posted their DirecTV posts.
Users of the DirecTV mobile apps require a residential home account registered on the DirecTV website to be able to access the recording functionality, and is available customers in the United States only.
For those that would like to take advantage of what the DirecTV mobile apps have to offer, if you have an iPhone, iPod Touch or Apple iPad you can download the DirecTV app for free from iTunes, and if you are on the Android platform the app is also free from Google Play.
