With all of the big screens available these days with crystal clear pictures, it may seem counterintuitive that people are shifting back toward using small screens to watch TV. However, there's one important feature of these small screens that gives them a huge advantage over any size screen you could have in your home. You can take a small screen with you wherever you go, which means you never have to miss any of your favorite TV programming.
Technology has made watching TV on mobile devices from anywhere a reality, and with DirecTV, that means catching all of the big sports games, the latest movies, and your favorite specialty programming. When you sign up for a package at home, which you can build through Direct 4 TV, you'll get full access to the programming on your phone as well.
Most people think of mobile devices as ideal for viewing live programming, like big sports games, while away from home. But they're also great for watching programming on demand so you can catch up on anything available through the on-demand network. Movies are available as well, which can make a public transportation commute fly by. Parents will also love on-demand programming that can keep kids occupied anywhere with a Wi-Fi or 3G phone signal.
Your mobile devices are also very helpful for enhancing your TV viewing experience when you arrive back home. The DirecTV app on your mobile phone can actually communicate with your DVR at home. This means that if you're out and remember that your favorite show or a special program is about to start, you can use your phone to set your DVR to record it. It's just one more layer of security to make sure you get the most from your satellite subscription.
Technology is getting more sophisticated every year, and you can be sure that the features available on mobile devices are only going to get better in the future. Getting hooked up now will ensure that you get to start using the latest and greatest features as soon as they become available, getting a continually better experience of watching TV from anywhere. Plus, all of these great features are available for free with your subscription, so you don't have to pay an extra penny for watching on your mobile device.
