Update to DIRECTV App lets you watch your live and recorded programs virtually anywhere
•New "Data Free TV" feature lets you stream AT&T U-verse and DIRECTV content without it counting against your AT&T wireless data allowance
Away from home but itching to catch a live episode of the latest hit TV show, watch your favorite recorded movie or binge watch that series everyone has been talking about? Today, with the latest update to the DIRECTV App, you can do that for almost any show anywhere.
The updated DIRECTV App gives you access to your live and recorded programming1 whether away from the living room in your home or on the go. That's right: virtually anything you typically watch on your DIRECTV service at home will now be available anywhere you have either a mobile or Wi-Fi internet connection. That includes shows on live channels – even locals – as well as just about all of your DVR recorded programs. You can also download most of your DVR recordings to your device to watch offline – perfect for long plane flights.
Even better, you can stream video via your DIRECTV or U-verse App without using your mobile data when you're on the go with Data Free TV on the AT&T mobile wireless network.2 It's easy and automatic after registering and it doesn't count against your AT&T mobile data allotment.
"Our customers want to take their TVs with them, and our new DIRECTV App allows just that," said David Christopher, CMO, AT&T Entertainment Group. "You can get the content you want, when you want it.... your living room channels and your recorded content with you, anywhere you go."
To experience these exciting ways to watch your DIRECTV, here's what you need:
1.A DIRECTV subscription (SELECT® or above)
2.The DIRECTV App (available on iOS today and Android soon)
3.Genie HD DVR 44 and above with a home internet connection
4.The understanding that once you start streaming on your mobile device, you're going to have little excuse to stay home
