DIRECTV NOW is Sending Out More DVR Beta Invites


Well, it is starting to look less likely that DIRECTV NOW’s new DVR will be out before the end of Fall 2017. This week AT&T started sending out a new round of invites today for their DIRECTV NOW app beta. Right now it looks like invites are mostly for the browser testing but a few other users are getting invites for other devices.

Here is the invite that went out to the lucky few who got selected:

If you want to see if you got an invite to the DIRECTV NOW beta make sure to check the email address you gave AT&T and look in your spam to make sure it didn’t end up there.

Now, as best we can tell both invites to fill out a survey to be considered for the beta and invites to the beta have been sent out. Above is what an invite to join the beta looks like. The other invite will ask you to take a survey to see if you are eligible to join the beta. If you get the email with a survey you will need to wait for an email like the one above to be able to use the new beta app after you fill out the survey.

    Fall is over

    • TechSupport

      Actually fall doesn’t end until December 21st.

        It doesn’t snow in fall.

          lol. Well it does but we don’t like it to.

  • TechSupport

    I wish either directv would release a simple DVR feature or roku would update my roku tv to 8.0 so I can get the new PlayStation vue layout. So tired of these things taking so long.

  • TaiPeng

    i have no emails from DTVN. Not an AT&T customer either.

  • Butch McGee

    Any of these dvr offerings allow you to add time to the scheduled recording? Ex: program following a ball game that may go way onertime.

    • TechSupport

      I am waiting for directvs DVR but until then I have PlayStation vue. They automatically add whatever time is needed.

      • Butch McGee

        Thank you, if they had a&e and history I would be there

        • TechSupport

          History is what I miss but I want DVR more than History. There is no perfect solution right now.

    I can’t understand why the partnership of 2 companies that each already have functioning DVR service on their respective individual services (DTV and ATT’s Uverse) haven’t come up w. a functional DVR service. OTH, they are one of the largest OTT services even w.o. a service most users would consider essential.
    Question – Do DTVN users have access to the On Demand databases available for subscribers to many channels from Com Central to HBO?

    They need to beta test ROKU. All these people with Roku’s outnumber any other streaming players, not to mention all the new DTVNow customers getting free Roku sticks by prepaying for 2 months. Are Roku users going to be able to use DTVNow 2.0 app when it rolls out?

  • Bob Loblaw

    This is getting ridiculous.
