How do I set up the DIRECTV app with a receiver in my home network?


Your tablet or phone must be connected to the same WiFi network as your receiver and wireless router. If you’re all set, follow these steps:

  • Open the DIRECTV app on your mobile device
  • Tap Browse for TV
  • From the main menu, select Receiver in the Receiver Control section. This will bring up a list of receivers that are connected to your home network and are eligible for control.
  • Tap the receiver you want to control. If one or more of your receivers are not listed, this means they are not currently recognized on the network.
