DTV app for smart tv's - DirecTV

When storms blow through our area we loose satelitte reception, which can be frequently this time of year, and sometimes lenghy. Wouldn't it be nice if DTV provided an app that we could download to the smart tv so we could stream via the internet during these outages? I'd rather watch on a 60" screen than on my phone. Any thought on this?
