DirecTV iPhone app
DirecTV has launched an app that allows customers to control their home DVR systems from an iPhone or iPod touch. A search function can be used to find shows up to 14 days in advance, or the content can be browsed by channel or date and time. The listings include additional information such as show descriptions, length and rating. Users can record single shows, an entire series or Pay Per View content.
The DirecTV iPhone app is available from the App Store for free. Customers must have a residential home account registered on directv.com to access the recording functions.
