The satellite company teased an iPad app with a “coming soon” section on its web site today. All the DVR controls from the mobile apps are present, but there are also additional features to take advantage of the larger screen.
Users will be able to create a customized control screen with access to favorite content. The remote control feature is designed to look similar to the current remotes.
DirecTV is playing catchup, as Comcast, FiOS, Dish and TiVo have already launched an iPad app. Unlike some of its competitors no streaming of content appears planned yet. There is also no word on whether the iPad app will be subject to any 771 errors.
