In case you haven’t already found out, DirecTV has brought its app from phones over to tablets on the Android side of things. The official DirecTV app for tablets will allow you watch select television from any room in your home, including AUDIENCE Network.

You can browse shows, movies and sports programs with information such as program descriptions, cast listings, and parental ratings. Other features include the ability to browse the entire channel guide (up to 14 days in advance) and tap a channel to begin playback on your TV, set DVR recordings from afar, get real-time scores and schedules for sports games, and more.

The home-screen allows you to setup a list of your favorite channels, view a What’s Hot list to see what everyone’s watching, live TV streaming, info about what’s currently being watched on your TV, and more. You loyal DirecTV customers have no reason not to own the app, really — it’s free, it’s awesome, and it’s now available for download in the Google Play Store. PS: you can also grab the phone version here in case you didn’t know.
