The goal was to make an app that would make it easier to manage DirecTV, and use some of those awesome blurs and transparencies that iOS9 offers. DirecTV has a unpublished API that enabled simple functions like changing channels, but I really wanted to make something that had a full TV guide with imagery. I noticed that the DirecTV website uses an internal API to populate it's guide. That api is written with Node/Express. After some reverse engineering, I was able to pull live channel data, a feat that no other DTV app in the store does.
Lastly, I made a notification center widget for fast channel changing, and a Watch OS app.
