I would really like to use the app for my kids, but I do NOT want them having my "one and only ID and pwd" .... DTV - you need to set somethign up to allow for the creation of another ID/PWD that can access my information. Time Warner Cable has this - the ability to add additional ID's to your account. Really disappointed when I started playing with this - luckily my kids don't know they can use their tablets to watch DTV yet .....

I am unable to stream TV to my desktop PC (Win 7 64 bit) from the DirecTV.com website anymore. This used to work, on multiple browsers, but as of the most recent update (a week or two ago now) it tells me that I have to install the DirecTV player even though it's already been installed. Funny thing is I can still stream ESPN's channel off the DirecTV.com site, perhaps it uses a different player than the other channels?
But with other channels I always get the instruction to download and install the DirecTV player, and it never recognizes that the player has already been installed. Despite trying all the suggestions to delete browser cache, install it onto a different browser, uninstall/reinstall the player etc.
I know it's not an issue with my account or with my broadband as I can stream from the sites of individual channels (HBOgo.com, FoxSportsGo.com, CNN.com, MSNBC.com, ESPN.com etc.) logging with the rights from my DirecTV account.
A couple of lengthy sessions with tech support did not yield any help aside from an eventual acknowledgment that the problem was on the DirecTV end.
I would appreciate to be notified when the problem is addressed as it is time consuming to clear cache, restart the browser, reboot my machine etc.

I've helped my boss with his since they did the streaming and it's been horrible. Suddenly without any notice after his upgrade he had to have a receiver 54 instead of a 44?!?! Then tells him it's going to cost $200 for that upgrade. My Huawei honor 5x connects to it but I'm always in the same city and I'm on cricket wireless. His iphone 7 won't connect and he's on AT&T bundled with his directv!! They keep saying it's his phone but AT&T won't help because Apple wants to handle their own problems but really don't. They keep delaying any replacement. I miss directv before they combined with AT&T. Now it's all just over priced worthless junk.

Does not make sense. Mobile DVR works with either the HR44 or the HR54. What happens when he tries to connect, when the phone is on his home network?

Yes I recently opened a Directv satellite account along with a mobility box . I also have an att prepaid iPhone . My question is if I watch Directv from the app on my prepaid phone will it still be data free ??? Directv says data free on any device as long as you use the DTv app. But since my prepaid cell doesn’t have anything to do with my post paid account I just want to verify the rules of streaming to my phone Thanks
