Where's the iPad app?

I signed up and prepaid for Directv Now but there is no iPad app!  The "Watch Now" button links to the App Store but there's no app.  I tried the vanilla Directv app but it doesn't recognize my account.  Where's the app?

Use the following to get the iOS App & AppleTV App

 

Install iOS App Using The Direct Link - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/directv-now/id1136238277?mt=8

 

Install the app using the direct link until Apple's App Store index's the new app and it appears in search. To get it on Apple TV, use the steps below once you have it installed on an iOS device like an iPhone / iPad.

 

Here's a work around for getting the App on AppleTV if you already have it installed on a iOS device like an iPhone / iPad. 

1. Open the AppleTV App Store

2. Go to "Purchased" at the top of the store.

3. Choose "DirecTV Now" and "Get"

 

That should get it on your device. If you downloaded it to your iOS and have auto App download turned on for the AppleTV, it should also be already download to your AppleTV, but this is a work around until search is working for those that don't have an iOS device.

I just signed up for 3-months prepaid but there is no iOS or Apple TV app available in the App Stores.


When will these apps be available?  If not today, can you add extra days to the end of my subscription to make up for this lost time?

They need to extend the paid time being it's useless at the moment. I cant image how they neglected to provide an App.

Just signed up only to discover no app in the Apple store.  Took advantage of Apple TV offer.  Certainly hope will be able to use it.  Guess will have to wait to see what kind of service to expect!

I found a way to download the app for Apple devices. Go to the website, login, the part where it shows my account etc click help center scroll down to where it says download app and it should show three links.

1 for amazon
1 for google
1 for Apple

The iOS app is available in the Apple App Store now. The service just launched, so give it more than 3 hours to get everything launched. As for the AppleTV app, I'm not seeing it yet, but I would imagine that it will be avialble within the next 24 hours. Depends on how long Apple takes to push it to the App Store for download.

That app is for iPhone and iPad, not Apple TV. Doesn't show up when you search for it in your apple tv app store.
