What receivers work with the DIRECTV app for Apple Watch?


The DIRECTV app for Apple Watch works with Internet-connected HD DVRs (models HR44, HR34, HR24, HR23, HR22, HR21, HR20). It also works with select Internet-connected HD receivers (models H25, H24, H23, H22, H21). Please note: Genie Minis and Wireless Genie Minis are not supported at this time.

IMPORTANT TIP: Before you start using your Apple Watch, make sure your receiver is set up correctly. Go to your receiver’s MENU, then select Settings & Help > Settings > Whole-Home > External Device. Make sure “Current Program” is set to Allow. Once you’re done, please re-open the DIRECTV app on your iPhone and Apple Watch.
