Default DTV's app service...iPhone, iPad and MBA

Coming from Dish and “Dishanywhere”, the Directv app seems to be a pale comparison to Dish for remote viewing on my devices. I can very seldom watch anything in my home on my iPad, iPhone or MacBook Air without extreme buffering. When I first connect it up, NO channels show below channel 200, so no locals.

Sometimes something “switches” and then channels 2-200 show up intermittently on my remote devices.

I switched primarily because I have a 4K set and thought I would catch some limited DTV 4K. That’s been a waste of time and the only 4K content I see are on NetFlix, Amazon Prime and youtube.

I still have 18 months to go on the current contract and then I’m out of here and back to Dish or perhaps a true streamer like Comcast.

To be fair, I have NO problem with DTV feeding my TV and DVR the old fashion way (directly to my flatscreen.)

DTV (apps) are just not ready for prime time IMHO.

IF you could see how well the Dishanywhere works compared to the Directv app, you would be blown away.
