This has been very nice for setting up recording remotely on those days I forget to set it myself. It does rely on your wireless connection and if that isn't solid there are delays or hiccups, being able to use the remote control function on my iPad is excellent. I do love Directv and this normally enhances the experience.

I have had DIRECTV for 5 years and I do love them but you kinda get trapped because the price keeps going up. I like the app you can watch shows record shows and pay the bill. I would recommend but watch out for increase price.

We just switched from Charter to DirecTV because we HAD to have the NFL Sunday Ticket. They had just merged with AT&T and the AT&T rep in the store sold us on it. First of all, the merger screwed a lot of stuff up for a lot of people. It was not executed well at all. I sat on hold for 30 MINUTES trying to talk to someone about my DirecTV account and not being able to log in, OR get access to the NFL ticket on our mobile devices. Once everything was smoothd out, I was very happy. The picture quality from cable to satellite is exceptional. The menu screen works a lot better and the extra features are great. My husband is away from home a lot and has been pleased with being able to watch his recorded shows on the go. We are very happy with the quality of services, we just wish it wasn't so hard to talk with someone and get an issue resolved.

This is great. We can watch anything on DIRECTV from anywhere in the world. It doesn't use your data as long as you have AT&T. No matter where you are the picture is perfect and I've never had the picture cut out for bad service areas.

Expensive satellite company. I feel like they overcharge. And when it rains I always lose receptions. Go for digital cable

Direct TV is just ok. In my opinion I'd rather go with another company that does not trap you into a 2yr contract.
