Hi @bruce401,

Do you have DIRECTV and an Alexa device? Take your TV experience to the next level! Check this website out!


Try saying:
"Alexa, tune to HGTV"
"Alexa, find action movies with Matt Damon"
"Alexa, show me comedy movies"
"Alexa, pause DIRECTV"
"Alexa, resume DIRECTV"
"Alexa, fast-forward on DIRECTV"
"Alexa, rewind on DIRECTV"
"Alexa, fast-forward thirty seconds on DIRECTV"
“Alexa, record this”
“Alexa, record TNT”
