If you’re a DirecTV customer who also happens to own an iPad, you’ll be excited to hear about a new free app that is available to you. The DirecTV app gives you access to your home DVR system and will allow you to use your tablet as an extremely robust remote control. Things like checking TV listings for up to two weeks in advance, changing recording schedules and more are at your fingertips, regardless of where you are.
The two most disappointing things about this app are that it doesn’t actually stream content to your iPad, and that thus far it is only available for the iPad. With the rise of Android tablets out there, hopefullly we’ll see this app in the Android Marketplace before long.
