We made some changes to the latest version of the DIRECTV App for tablet. Now when you go into the Watch on iPad tab, you’ll see only those movies and shows included in your DIRECTV subscription package and DIRECTV CINEMA movies you’ve already purchased and are still viewable within your rental period. To find more movies and shows to watch on your iPad, follow these steps:
If the Watch Now button includes a price, that means your selected movie requires a purchase. Just complete the order on the following screen to start watching.
If you see an Activate Now button instead of Watch Now, that means the movie or show your selected is from a network you’re not subscribed to. Just tap the button to activate the network. Activation takes just a few minutes. Once activation is complete, your movie or show will be available for viewing.
