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

Go to the "Watch on Phone" tab located on your home screen and select "Movies", "TV Shows" or "Networks" to start watching now.
- Discover the top shows and movies that people are currently talking about.
BubblePuppy said:The Directv app has been updated with "Watch On Phone" capability. It allows viewing of Directv Cinema, HBO, STARZ, SHOWTIME, ENCORE, and network shows on your smartphone.
Available on Google Play.
Addendum: The sources are slim if you don't have subscriptions to the movie channels. Regular tv networks aren't available. Hopefully that availability is in the future.
The app does have pause which will allow resuming viewing later on.

Got the notice for the update this morning on the Android tablet here....just checked - it's version 2.2.0...the app added the items in the OP.Stuart Sweet said:That's odd... I still see 2.1.1 as the latest version for both platforms.
It also includes HBO, Cinemax, Starz and something else if you subscribe to those channels."syphix" said:By "networks", it should be noted...this does NOT include CBS, ABC, Fox or NBC. Only the Audience Network.
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.dualsub2006 said:It also includes HBO, Cinemax, Starz and something else if you subscribe to those channels.
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.bobnielsen said: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".
Which is a great sign imho as it shows DIRECTV is starting to give the Android line a little more attention than before!BubblePuppy said:It's not available for iphone yet.
