DirecTV iPad App Now Available

Satellite-TV provider DirecTV announced that its DirecTV iPad App is now available via the iTunes App Store.

The app allows users to create their own customized home screens; use standard TV controls including play, pause, rewind, fast-forward, and scroll through channels; create lists of favorite channels and sports teams; browse by subjects such as movies, sports, or a complete 14-day guide; use one-tap DVR recording and programming information; get access to DVR playlists; and set their DVRs from anywhere.

The app joins similar iPhone and Android efforts, and CNET pointed out that it is only compatible with DirecTV Plus DVR and TiVo Series 2 receivers.
