When I open the directv streaming app on my tv the app auto plays the first channel in the guide. Id prefer it not auto play anything when I first open the app. The auto playing also starts the ae channel which id prefer my young children not see initially either. Id prefer to select from my library or select something from the guide. Again, this is a feedback suggestion that would make the service much better.
One other suggestion, when I record my local sports Id prefer it record local broadcast version if its available. There have been times where the Boston Bruins are on both NESN and ESPN and only the ESPN version is recorded even though the game is available on both networks.
