November 15, 2011

With the FREE DIRECTV™ iPad® App, you can now tune in to live TV right on your iPad® and watch it anywhere in your home. Whether you’re in your kitchen, your den, or your bedroom—your favorite channels are right there with you wherever you want to be in your house.

The “Live TV Streaming” module on the app screen shows you the channels you can tune in to and the programs currently playing. Just tap the channel you want to watch and tap Watch on iPad®. It won’t interrupt what’s playing on any of your TVs. It’s like a having an extra TV in the palm of your hands.

To enjoy live TV on your iPad®, you’ll need an HD DVR connected to your home Internet network. Your iPad® has to be connected via WiFi to the same network.

To download the DIRECTV™ iPad® App, just go to the App Store. If you already have the app, all you need to do is update it and you’ll have the new live TV feature.
