Directv active was an invention by Newscorp when Directv was under their ownership to copy interactive services like on Sky uk. Times have changed and internet connected services are what replaced that. Directv hasn't changed or revamped active in years and probably never will. It is really slow and the only useful thing about it is getting lottery results and local weather. Gamelounge is also useless because it is very slow and the games are too primitive. Directv should now focus everything on internet connectivity. They should create a full fledged app store similar to whats on Boxee or Roku and not just like their current widget like apps now. They have already done it a little bit with things like Pandora and Youtube but could expand much bigger. Gamelounge would be so much better if it loaded the games from the internet and not from the one way communication satellite. Gamelounge should also be subscription free with ads in my opinion. It would get many more people to use it. Otherwise they should get rid of it. Please express your opinions and maybe Directv will listen.
