I am considering getting a Galaxy Tab 3 (8 inch) tablet, however I am trying to figure out if it is compatible with the DirecTV apps I typically use on my wife's iPad. 


Is the DirecTV App for Android tablets compatible with this tablet?  I tried to look it up on DIRECTV's website, but it doesn't have a list of compatible android tablets.  I also know that people have had issues getting this app to run on the 8 inch tablets.


Also, is the GenieGo App for Android compatible with this tablet?  It does not list this particular tablet on the DirecTV GenieGo site, however Tab 2 (7 inch) is listed, and I can't imagine that a more advanced and bigger screened tablet would not work. 


If one or the other or both do work, do they work straight from the Google Play store?  Or do they need to be sideloaded?


Thanks for any and all replies!  Especially from those who currently have this tablet.
