    On my droid x, nothing is steaming, I'm getting an error to turn off wifi...it's not on.

    Update: App is now working. Red Zone is also streaming now.
    Picture quality is horrible.

    IPhone app is not working for me at all. Joy on 3G nor on WiFi. This is a joke. Seriously considering canceling this over priced piece of crap. 2 weeks in a row it's not working.

    I called and cancelled. Terrible service. Awful programming.

    I don't use the service at all because I'm always home on Sundays (or I record and watch later).

    What devices have been the most problem this year as clearly some of you are having some problems.

    I'm getting the same error on my Android HTC EVO. It says that my WiFi signal is blocking the video signal, and to try and connect via 3G... The only problem is that I had my WiFi off, and WAS connecting via 3G!

    Doug - the PC app simply didn't work. And that's browser based. Stream not available. Finally (around 430 EDT) they gave up and you couldn't even sign in.

    None of the online stuff worked reliably yesterday. Bunch of crap.

    Had the same issue on my Samsung Captivate. Not even close to a wifi signal and using 3G.

    Droid X was able to connect. However, the PQ was unwatchable. I couldn't even read the score on the top. It is 4:3 stretched to fit the X screen. I am quite disappointed.

    PC: I opened after 4:00 yesterday and it worked fine with both IE8 and Chrome.

    For first half of yesterday's first games the app worked on my iPad over 3G but the video was herky jerky for a couple of minutes then smoothed out. Same issue everytime I picked a new game. Then about 2/3 way through the game everything became unavailable. Got an error message re: the server/technical difficulties and unable to connect for 15 mins. Then it was all restored and looked and worked great.

    Also worked very well on my Blackberry Torch. No lag in getting a smooth picture but although good, not as good as my iPad. Forgot I had it so decided to give it a spin. :)

    That's very interesting. My HTC Evo was definitely 16:9, although it only worked for about a minute.

    Folks, it looks like the Red Zone channel may be up on the apps right now. Please log in and see what kind of results you are getting now.

    I don't have a good way to test this myself, so if it's not working now please post that as well.

    Well, I called Directv to complain. I complained that it is terrible quality and doesn't work well on any device (phone or computer). They gave it to me for free and credited my account.
    I'm glad they did that. However, it is unwatchable in it's current format. I don't understand how they would even market something like that. Don't they test and make sure it can handle it?

    Even though it is now free I still won't use it.
