DirectV Now App, Use, and Roku
So I cancelled my regular Directv account because it was no longer in my budget. I have 3 Roku devices with Amazon Prime, and Netflix, as well as an HD antenna, but still could not catch all of the channels that I had with my directv account. DirectV now Seemed like the way to go. I signed up and prepaid to get an Amazon fire stick even though I already had 3 Roku devices, (which I read that Directv now would be available on Roku during Q1 2017) The Amazon stick is horribly slow compared to Roku, and my universal remote will not control the Amazon stick like it does flawlessly with my Roku Devices. In addition, if I don't watch some of my favorite shows live (The Walking Dead for example) I have to wait a whole week to stream it and streaming is poor at best. I thought that maybe I could stream it through AMC's site, but nope I cant log in with a DirecTV now account. In addition to that, another favoite channel (TCM) only has a live stream. Well I work for a living and most of the movies I used to DVR play during the day while I am at work. So at this point I spent $50 bucks for a poor replacment for DirecTV
So tomorrow is the last day for Q1 and I still don't see the App on Roku. Does anyone have an ETA on when this is going to happen?
so far, severely disappointing.
