    I see that they have an application for iPhones. :mad: I am WM6.1 user and would like to see they create an application for it. Using the internet browser on my cell just isn't enough. The features on iPhones are more attractive!

    I can't find it now but I thought I had seen something saying it probably would not be extended to wm6+ setups.
    would love to be wrong :)
    that happens often so... :)

    Just a gut feeling, unsupported by evidence, but if I were DIRECTV I'd be programming for WM7 as it promises to be quite different.

    currently, from recent searches, no phones used by US carriers work with WM7 as it is.
    not sure how they could test it.
    wm6+ will be around for some time still.

    A good Blackberry interface would be good too.

    Would love to see a Palm OS5 one too. I know the OS is dead, but it will be legacy supported on the Pre, so why not?

    Symbian hasn't really penetrated the US market though.

    WM7 isnt anywhere near even being leaked. 6.5 though will have the marketplace which apps like facebook and netflix will be on. So they could develop something for that.

    The marketplace will be cool too, as it offers a 24 hour return policy on apps and will be integrated with XBL and Zune Marketplaces (which are becoming more closely linked this year as well)

    Better yet, Directv should just publish some XML Web Services and let independent developers create clients for the major smartphone operating systems.

    I do think the simple solution is to get with the times and get a iphone. EVERYTHING is better on the iphone. Apps ,more down loadable content, EASY interface.
    Trust me just get a iphone and all will be well.:D:D:):D:D

    No thanks, love my Blackberry and I'm sticking with them. Plus I just moved away from AT&T and have no plans on moving back to them anytime soon!

    m.directv.com on the Treo works every bit as well and as fast as the iPhone app. Actually, it's better because you're not slowed down by that horrid on-screen keyboard.

    I'm more concerned about the problems on the DVR side that have been caused by the remote scheduling.

    Last time I checked the iPhone is only available via AT&T. And if you live in an area that AT&T does not offer coverage like I do then that is not a simple solution.

    I have a feeling this app has more to do with the "dedicated support" part of the contract with AT&T.

    I would venture to say a WM6 version is also in the works.
