DIRECTV NOW is Now Available on More Roku Devices

To the joy of many Roku owners AT&T today updated their Roku Channel to include support for more devices. Back in June when DIRECTV NOW came to Roku it only supported the following devices:

  • Roku Streaming Stick (2016)
  • Roku Premiere
  • Roku Premiere +
  • Roku Ultra
  • Roku 4
  • Roku 3
  • Roku Express
  • Roku Express+
  • 4K Roku TVs

Now we can confirm that HD TCL Roku TVs now support DIRECTV NOW. We are also hearing reports of other devices being added. Is your Roku now supported but not listed above? Leave us a comment and let us know.

    Thanks for the heads up Luke! It is now on my TCL 32″ 720p Roku TV. It’s been on my 4K TCL for some time. Now I can finally watch DIRECTV Now in the bedroom ? It’s also on my Roku 2 …..

    I signed up for Directv Now and was only able to access the 7 day free trial. It appears that my roku player model# 2500X is not on the list of roku players that’s supported.

    Any idea as to why DTVNow live chat icon is missing? First no phone support and now no chat link. Pathetic.

    Trying it out to see how it works. So far, not too impressed. The 72 hour playback is _extremely_ limited. There’s no DVR. On-Demand is a bit lacking, and not sure if I want/need a local CBS provider or not. I appreciate that it works on the Roku and seems to work without too much trouble, but not sure this is worth a monthly payment to me at this point. Will have to compare to PSVue or Sling. I’d compare to YoutubeTV as it just opened up in the area, but no Roku support for that makes it a pretty useless service.

    I appreciate the one month free, though. Just wish it were more full-featured.

      Yeah, if you’re looking for one under $150 it’s not an easy answer. Otherwise Nvidia Shield seems like an obvious choice. (Note: Nvidia Shield is the only Android TV box for which the Amazon Video app is available.)

      If I was to get one in the near future, I’d probably get Sling’s AirTV (and turn off the autostart of the AirTV app). My criteria are more than one USB port and an ethernet port. However, there certainly seems like a lack of comparative reviews around for Android TV boxes.
