by Nancy on September 6, 2013 · Comments

With GetGlue 5.0 for iPhone, we set out to simplify and enhance our app to make it easier to discover, watch, and connect with fans, and keep up with your favorite TV shows and movies. This release comes with a new feature, giving you the ability to change channels on your DIRECTV with the GetGlue app.

Step 1. Make sure that both the DIRECTV set-top box and your mobile phone are using the same wireless network.

Step 2. Enable external apps on your DIRECTV set-top box. Press Menu via your DIRECTV remote and select:

Step 5. Post about what you’re watching. Whatever you’re watching on DIRECTV will automatically show up as the first option when you search for a show or movie to post to.
