How to watch LIVE TV on your mobile device
To watch live TV channels on your tablet or mobile device, you need an HD DVR connected to your home broadband network. Your device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your HD DVR.
First, install the DIRECTV App, if you haven't already done so. Installation is quick and easy. Once installation is complete, launch the app and proceed with the steps below:
Within your home Wi-Fi network, launch the DIRECTV App. Tap the MAIN MENU icon on the upper left corner.
Look next to "Receiver" at the bottom of the main menu. If you see the location name of your HD DVR, proceed to Step 3. If you see "No Receiver," tap it and then follow the instructions to link your device to the HD DVR that's connected to your home network.
From the MAIN MENU, select Guide.
Tap the "On Phone" filter. Tap any program to start viewing. Programs with a "Streaming +" icon are available to stream outside your home.
