El Segundo, Calif. – DirecTV said Thursday it has added four streaming television channels for out-of-home live TV viewing on Apple iPads and eventually iPhones and Android devices.

The networks make up part of an out-of-home channel lineup that also includes DirecTV’s Audience Network, which launched on the platform last month.
The out-of-home live TV streaming feature is available to all DirecTV subscribers at no additional cost, through the DirecTV iPad App and does not require any additional hardware.
The service will also be available on the iPhone this month and Android devices by the end of the year, the satellite TV service said.
