DirecTV for iPad adds live TV viewing

updated 02:25 pm EDT, Thu October 27, 2011

Users must already be DirecTV subscribers

DirecTV has posted a new version of its iPad app, v1.3.1. The app is normally intended to be used as a guide and remote control. The v1.3.1 update, though, introduces support for in-app viewing of live TV. Users must be DirecTV subscribers, and on the same Wi-Fi network as a compatible DirecTV HD DVR.

Roughly three dozen channels are accessible through the app, although the exact combination depends on a person's subscription package. Parental controls can be set to restrict access by children. If a person wants to continue viewing on a TV set, swiping up on video will automatically tune a DVR to the proper channel.

The app is a free download for iPads running iOS 4.2 or later. Live TV is enabled by installing a special module.
