I'm pretty sure the previous poster is correct. There are certain shows that don't stream at all, on any streaming service, which is a decision the network has made and nothing DirecTV NOW can do about it. I agree customer service could be better, but I have never had trouble getting in touch with chat support. It can be argued how helpful chat support really is with certain topics though. However, you came to the official DirecTV NOW community support forum and got your answer, so, you did get help in the end.

I am getting error 70 on Animal planet and there is no way to talk to customer service about it.  I keep trying to “chat” with them, but it continues to send me to an account sign in page which I have already done.  I pay for a package that includes Animal planet, yet I am unable to watch a show that is aired on it.  Doesn’t seem right and there is zero support from Direct TV Now!  I will be sure to let everyone I know about Direct Tv’s lack of support and I will be cancelling my subscription.  Pathetic Direct TV Now!!!

Don't be over dramatic, the Animal planet is NOT blacked out!. A particular show might not be able to be streamed over the internet, which has nothing to do with Direc tv now.

If that is the case then so be it. My point is that there is no way to get in touch with someone from Direct TV Now to explain this to me and that is poor customer service..... if in fact this is the case.

AT&T has always been in this practice and it shocks people.it's not about the customer it's about the shareholders bottom line.

If you are using the new app with a Apple device then you should be aware they are having major issues across the board.
