Directv app appleplay *BUG*

Using iPhone 7 running latest firmwares. Using apple AirPlay to stream to tv, the closed captioning will not turn off unless you turn it on and off each time you change the channel. Please address this issue.

U fortunately, we can’t do anything about that being we are customers just like you. Perhaps try bringing it up to DIRECTV by calling them (number in my greeting below).

There are known bugs in that new app anyway.

DirecTV (satellite) doesn't allow Apple Airplay/casting to TV. This is because you pay for each TV on the service and the app is for mobile perks only, not to get a free TV.

DIRECTV STREAM allows casting to TV.

If you have satellite service, then yes the app is bugged as it should block you from using Apple Airplay. Enjoy it until it is fixed.
