What is TVmail and how do I access this feature on my TV?


With DIRECTV’s TVmail feature, you never have to worry about missing another important announcement again. Whether it’s a free weekend of premium channels or an update for the DIRECTV App for your smartphone, you’ll get the latest DIRECTV news and updates at the click of a button, right on your TV.

To access TVmail, simply press the MENU button on your remote and select TVmail. To find out if you have new messages, look for the mail icon in the channel banner when you tune to any channel. If you have an HD receiver or an HD DVR, press the INFO button, then select Messages from the top menu.
