DirecTV Adds Streaming to Their App

"The DirecTV app for iPad got a significant bump in capabilities today by adding live streaming to giving you essentially a portable TV you can take to any room of your house."

Sucks that you have to be on the same network to utilize this, but a nice update and progress nonetheless. I guess this is cool if you don't want to buy another TV and want to watch your shows from the comfort of your bed. What will be cooler is when you will be able to stream from your DVR without having to use Sling to do it, like I have to do now on Dish.

DirecTV App for iPad Now Available

"Apparently that "coming soon" teaser page meant only a few days, as the aptly named DirecTV App for iPad popped up on the iTunes store this morning."

You need to have one of the Plus HD DVR models to use this free app, but it is handy for remote functions such as setting up recordings you may have forgotten while at home. You can't stream video on it, but I wouldn't have expected that without some adapter such as the Sling player that Dish Network uses.

DirecTV Launches iPhone App

"Never miss an episode of your favorite shows. DIRECTV's free iPhone application turns your iPhone or iPod touch into the easiest, fastest, most convenient way to find any program and set your home DVR — no matter where you are. An entire universe of DIRECTV entertainment is now just a tap away. Download and start exploring today! It's easy. It's fun. And it's yours FREE from DIRECTV."

This app packs quite a punch, including the ability to schedule recordings from your iPhone or iPod Touch and it has a decent program guide (something I've yet to find a good app for on the iPhone). If you're a DirecTV customer, you probably ought to give this one a try. I have a feeling you'd like it. And if you have tried it, share your experiences in the forum.
