Why am I unable to record regional sports programing from my Directv app? - DirecTV

#1
If I want to record a regional sports program (like my local NBA team on the regional channel Root Sports) I must be physically standing in front of my tv with my remote in hand. I am unable to record this program from the Directtv app or computer login. WHY IS THIS? This is extrememly inconveinent since 99% of the time that I need to record something is due to the fact that I am away from the house.

What makes this even more frustrating, is the fact that I used to have U-Verse where this is not an issue at all. In my opinion, this is an engineering/coding mistake that needs to be rectified. If it possible on one service, it should be possible on all.


This question, "Why am I unable to record regional sports programing from my Directv app?," is about DirecTV channels, programming, equipment, and sports.
