DIRECTV today launched a newly revamped iPad app designed to offer improved content discovery and quicker access to TV shows and movies. While the app retains its current feature base that allows customers to watch live TV, DVR content, and on demand titles, it includes several newly implemented tools to make browsing and viewing simpler.

In addition to streaming movies and TV, the DIRECTV app also allows customers to connect to social media sites, browse and search for DIRECTV content, control content that is sent to the TV, and manage DVR recordings.New "Menu" section to make browsing for content easier.
