When you find a show or movie you want others to know about, tap "Share on Facebook/Twitter" on the program info page. Choose a pre-written comment or write your own. Select either Facebook or Twitter by tapping its icon and tap Post. The first time you do this, you'll be prompted to log in to your Facebook or Twitter account and to give DIRECTV permission to connect to the account.
Your friends or followers can then click on the link in Facebook or Twitter to access the info page for that program and set their DVR to record it. If they click the link after the show airs, the DIRECTV Phone app will look for the next airing of that exact episode. If the episode can’t be found, the app will display the next episode airing of that program. If no future airings of the program are available, a message will appear saying so.
Note: Your friends must also have the DIRECTV Phone app installed on their phone.
