by Guest Author on July 25, 2012

DirecTV, the satellite television giant, anticipated people like us when they developed the “DIRECTV Everywhere” app for iPad and Android smartphones. Watch your favorite movies and programs wherever you are, at your convenience.

DIRECTV Everywhere

If you’re a subscriber of DirecTV, you can get the free DIRECTV Everywhere app, opening a new world of mobile entertainment. It works as advertised and is simple to use and navigate. Watch movies and show wherever you are, whenever you want, on your iPad or smartphone.

You can also watch live television anywhere in your home, turn your iPad into a remote control, and program your DVR. This will not interrupt any programming currently showing on any television in your house.

I don't get it, can you actually watch Directv programs on the Kindle Fire or just program the DVR?

I just downloaded the Direct TV app for my Kindle fire HD and it looks like it just sends a signal to your recorder to start recording. I couldn't figure out how to watch anything other than HBO to Go, with my subscription to Direct TV. When I asked for help from Amazon, I got some runaround about Amazon not having the app to actually play anything from Direct TV. Most disappointing. Maybe I should have gotten the ipad mini???? If anyone figures it out, please let me know.

Right now, you can download to a Kindle with TIVO, but not with Direct Tv. The only thing the app does is let you pick and start recording shows, not watch them. You can watch certain Amazon Prime shows and movies, but you have to have a good WiFi connection.
