DirecTV Now streaming app (NEW)

Please add the just released (30 Nov 16) 'DirectTV Now' streaming app. This new app is one of the new 'skinny bundle' OTT 'cord cutter' apps to bring a form of cable TV over the internet. Similar to Sling TV and Playstation Vue. (DirecTV Now has nothing to do with the satellite TV service by the same company) It would be nice to use this within the XBox interface instead of having to turn to Apple TV or other devices.

    Please bring out an app for direct tv. I have it at home but I live off campus where you have to pay for cable. I shouldn't have to be paying two direct tv bills at once or streaming to my tv from my laptop

    The XBOX ONE app is already in the works and you would know that if you had bothered to read the initial press release for AT&T and DirecTV

    This would be way cool integrated with one Guide Sling TV was so bad I tried it for one night and deleted the app. DirecTV now is not bad at all and has saved me tons.

    I just cut my cable and I am now using DirecTV Now. This is what I will be using when I'm not playing video games. DirecTV Now is only available on apple tv, and amazon fire. I would love to see the DirecTV Now app on xbox one s. I hope you can make it happen xbox.

    AT&T/DirecTV is probably a better source of information since THEY are the ones that actually make the app.

    So let's take a look at THEIR site.

    I am using this service and will be spending the most time on the device that has the app. I hope it's the Xbox.

    AT&T/DirecTV does not make an app for any console. More apps are coming in 2017 though. Also I think MS is aware of the service. Perhaps direct your request to ATT/DTV
