It showed up on my computer after a session on the DirecTV website where I did ask to be able to watch shows of my DirecTV subscription on my computer. So, I would assume it to be be a safe program. Not sure what all the hullabaloo is about this.
it is an file associated with Direct TV. It allows your web browser ability to do video playback from Direct TV servers. If you are a Direct TV customer and installed DIRECTV player on you PC this is needed to keep viewing Direct TV content on browser. If you are not a Direct TV customer and never installed DIRECTV player on your PC I recommend you to remove it.
