DirecTV iPad app gains support for 3G/4G streaming

updated 03:10 pm EDT, Wed March 21, 2012

Still limited to on-demand video

DirecTV has released a new version of its iPad app, v1.5.0. Users can now watch movies and TV shows over a 3G or 4G connection instead of just Wi-Fi. While live TV is still restricted to Wi-Fi, apps from other TV networks often block cellular support completely.

The app has also been upgraded with the ability to resume videos, and to check into Miso for shows a person is watching. As a whole the software includes a new social module, which lets users see what other people are watching and talk about it. The app is a free download, but requires a paid DirecTV subscription.

    Buy DirectTV w/o Satellite Link

    I can essentially buy the service without the Satellite Dish and use Internet with WiFi and 3G/4G to wide range of programming. Nice if true.
