App Description

The DIRECTV Remote app lets you control DIRECTV HD receivers in your home that are connected to Internet, right from your phone.

** Disclaimer/ Requirements: DIRECTV HD Receiver and Android phone running OS 6.0 or later are required.


• Use your phone to change channels, pause, fast forward, rewind and record your favorite shows… just like you do with other DIRECTV remote controls!
• The Mini Guide feature within the app allows you to preview programming on your phone and then switch it to your TV screen without interruption!
• Use the app to control every HD receiver in your home!
• The app will let you know when a receiver is detected.
• The Play/Pause button allows you to pause what you’re watching when you receive an incoming call and resume watching when you are finished talking.

Follow these steps to ensure your DIRECTV HD receivers are set up properly before using the remote app.
1. Press the MENU button on your standard DIRECTV remote control.
2. Select Settings & Help > Settings > Whole-Home > External Device
3. Set “External Access” and “Current Program” to: Allow

Please note: The DIRECTV Remote app requires a Wi-Fi connection to your home network and a DIRECTV Plus HD DVR (models R22, Genie, HR20 or higher) connected to the same network. The DIRECTV Remote app is also compatible with HD receivers (models C31 and higher)

by K A.M,Bloatware. This was in my phone automatically, without me even wanting it. No uninstall button, had to really get in there to get it out.

by Kyle Luna,Many channels like TeenNick are missing from the guide. The logos are highly outdated.

by David Killeen,Junk. All it says is program information not available

by lilyanna Erickson,I have to constantly uninstall and reinstall it at least twice a day because it forgets my receiver after a few hours but it works right when I install it. In my opinion, I think it would be better if the arrow buttons were bigger because its more convenient when you can browse channels without looking at your phone to make sure you press the button.

by R T Lewis,This app is as good as the customer support and service, garbage. It onlyfinds my Bedroom dvr and not my genie dvr even when putting in the dvr's ipaddress the app is still unable to find the genie. And what's up withasking permission to make phone calls? I'm about done with their stupidprices and customer support There's more options available to me now soyou're about to get canceled.
