    • Correct!! Not sure how this can be resolved. Directv claims it’s probably the “tv” doesn’t support their app but I don’t think it’s the case. My other doesn’t have the ATT&T Directv app.

  1. What happened to just Directv- not Directv Stream? Our Directv is not connected to AT&T, we have had the same account before ATT purchased Directv and is paid directly to Directv.

    • Same here. For some reason I have had DirecTV for 20 years. What I found out is that AT&T owns DirecTV and wants to get out of satellite altogether. They are going with streaming. DirecTV stream. AT&T TV doesn’t really even exist. All satellite customers will be migrated to DirecTV Stream. It’s already happening. To expedite the process you will start losing channels with DirecTV. I now keep having random service issues with various channels like FOX. I missed the entire first game of the World Series due to “Service Issues”. Hope this helps.

  2. Spent several hours today with directv trying to get an account so I could watch a food network on my smart tv they never could figure it out I hung up after awhile
