  1. Hey this is a great app from Directv, they turned your $500.00 mobile Ipad into a remote control. Who wouldn't love that? Working at DISH Network, I tend to keep track of all providers and their new technology, and Directv has been bringing up the "rear" for a while. While other providers have been offering apps, tools, TV Everywhere, Online content for the junkies. Directv was worried about 3D. Now Directv is releasing apps, and they now decided to get some online content, and they are shouting it to the world like they are the first and the best. I will gladly stick with my 922 receiver with a 1TB hard drive(Directs biggest is 500 gigs) and the built in sling technology, so I can take your $500.00 remote control and stream live tv and recorded shows to it, anywhere you want even outside of the house, or on an island, pending it has signal.
