    Well that worked, sort of doubt I'll ever use it though.

    Yep, it's there...and seems to work on my new Android phone. Finally some love for the Androiders among us.

    That's odd... I still see 2.1.1 as the latest version for both platforms.

    I would have had a ton of use for this 3 years ago. Since I work from home now I just have the actual channel on. For most people that have lives and actually leave the house, this could be kind of cool.

    By "networks", it should be noted...this does NOT include CBS, ABC, Fox or NBC. Only the Audience Network.

    It also includes HBO, Cinemax, Starz and something else if you subscribe to those channels.

    Correct, and BubblePuppy's post states that...but may lead some (myself) to believe that his inclusion of the word "networks" implies the four major broadcast networks.

    Got it on my Samsung Galaxy S2! Haven't used it yet, but it's nice that they are finally thinking about Android.

    This is a wonderful addition by Directv, especially by moving forward on the Android front. Maybe one day they will include the networks. And some live news feeds would be even more fantastic especially if mobile.

    Thank You Directv!

    I installed the update to my Nook Color (running CM9/ICS), but when I try to play a video it says, "Unfortunately, DIRECTV has stopped".

    Edit: It does play on my Bravo smartphone.

    Same with my HP Touchpad on CM9. It does work on my Droid-X, but the VzW 3G network in my area is not enough for it to be watchable. Probably better on WiFi.

    Sorry, but this was pretty worthless. If you don't subscribe to any premium channels all you get is the Audience network. Can they add something useful like live steaming? The IPad app is 100 times better, but I love my Android tablet too much to get an IPad.

    I started an Issues thread for the Android version and added a few issues already.

    On my Nexus I was able to use watch content with no problem, but on my Xoom tablet I just got an error. Would definitely rather watch on my tablet ...

    I noticed the "Watch On Phone" option, after the app updated on my Android phone last night. The picture quality is quite good over the wifi at the hotel I'm at. Hopefully they will add more content, since I don't subscribe to any premiums. I can only watch the ones listed for the Audience network.
