There's no "live tv" streams on DirecTV everywhere? Thats pointless for me. What if I want to tune into the news or a live event from work?


You can stream live CNN and HLN by logging in with your DirecTv username and password. There is a link to it on the My DirecTv tab somewhere, because I tried it to see if it worked.

I've gone thru this thread and have seen the comments but am still not clear whether D* intends to have true remote access to programming at some point. Does anyone know if that is planned? Ideally, I'd like to get any live or recorded programming if traveling and by connecting my iPad to a hotel room TV.

Those who can say for sure, will not, under NDA restrictions. I am not one of those, so my guess is we'll see increasing amounts of this over the near future, but probably never have everything, esp. live network programming on our iPads, but then, if you're in a hotel room, you'll have that at a minimum.

It would be good if dtv could get all their other stuff to work before bring out other new stuff. I would be really happy just to see my dvrs respond within a minute of press of the button. or maybe the ipad app to work.

You appear to have a problem with your receiver or iPad, as I have no issues with my four receivers or my iPad and the DirecTV app.

I am confused about the staggered rollout? I logged into my account on DirecTV.com. It showed DirecTV Everywhere was available for download, see attached picture. I downloaded DIRECTV_Player_4.00.exe. Should I install it?

The screenshot is referring to a common On Demand catalog of movies and shows that is available to watch on your TV, on your laptop or on your portable device.

I got a text from 223322 on my iphone today saying I can watch movies and shows from anywhere via TV, laptop, tablet & cell phone. There is a watch now link. Clicked it, saw some catalog but do you have to pay for everything? Is it just VOD stuff? I tried to watch something on HBO but the only option was to record it to the dvr.

I have done the D* everywhere download on my laptop and it closes my browser. I have even restarted the computer but I do not get it to load. I have it on my phone and tablet with no problem. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Any Suggestions?
