DirecTV's Exclusive "Audience Network" Leaves Home: Now Streaming Live - Anywhere

DirecTV Streams Live Programming Outside the Home Through Its Own iPad App; Content includes Award-Winning Documentaries and Exclusive Series

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- DirecTV is now offering its customers live programming through its own iPad(R) App, no matter where they are. Beginning today, the programming lineup from DirecTV's 24/7 exclusive Audience Network, including tonight's series finale of the critically-acclaimed legal thriller Damages, can be live streamed either inside or outside the home.

In addition to Damages, DirecTV's exclusive Audience Network has a stellar fall lineup of exclusive series and award-winning documentaries, including the premiere of Something to Talk About, a series of socially and culturally relevant documentaries that will premiere in October; the late-night sports comedy show, The Nick and Artie Show, featuring comedians Nick DiPaolo and Artie Lange; and exclusive series like Call Me Fitz featuring Jason Priestly, which premieres on Sept. 25.

"Our customers want access to their programming anytime and anywhere they can get it, which is why it was so important for us to take the first step toward offering live TV streaming outside of the home with our own network through our DirecTV(TM) iPad(R) App," said Tony Goncalves, senior vice president of Digital Entertainment Products for DirecTV. "And with the addition of the iPhone(R) and Android platforms coming soon, there will be even more ways for them to experience the exclusive programming available on the Audience Network. We hope our leadership will encourage more programmers to make content available for streaming live TV both in and out-of-home."

The out-of-home live TV streaming feature is available to all DirecTV customers at no additional cost, through the DirecTV(TM) iPad(R) App and does not require any additional hardware. The service will be available on the iPhone(R) in October and Android devices by the end of the year.

DirecTV broadband connected customers also have the ability to watch live TV channels on their iPad(R) from the convenience of anywhere inside their home. The in-home live TV streaming features more than 50 channels* from top-rated networks, turning the iPad(R) into a portable TV. The service requires an HD DVR connected to the Internet (Model R22, HR20, or higher) and must be on the same wireless home network as the HD DVR. For more information on live TV streaming and the Audience Network please visit, www.DirecTV.com.

*Available programming corresponds to package selection and is subject to change at any time.
