Directv Now Streaming Box Beta

Is there anyway to volunteer to be a beta tester for the new Directv Now streaming box?  I’ve had Directv for over 20 years and have both Directv and Directv Now, but I never get the opportunity to try out the new products.

Is there a forum anywhere just for the beta?  I've noticed on my 4K TCL TV set that the HDR logo is getting triggered using this device which is suppose to mean video is in 4K resolution.  Anyone else notice anything with 4K?  I dont think im getting 4K but something is triggering my TV to think it is.

Seems I’m having too do a restart from the menu more often of late? And yet I can
switch over to my AppleTv and have no or very minimal problems.

The new update is awesome on the beta box. I purchased 2 Direct TV remotes RC73 for $7 and they have all the functions as Lydian mentions above.

Though as far as I know, none of those other remote options provide voice access.  May or may not be important to you.

You're absolutely right and the remote is the worst. On the other hand it has simplified TV viewing, reminiscinet  of the old days when you just turn the TV on and watch. No app selection unless you want. If Netflix was there I'd be happier

Yes, there is an invitation-only Feedback Forum for the new DirecTV Streaming Box.   https://attfeedback.uservoice.com/forums/916927-at-t-streaming-device

@Blakehh - no one here can add you to anything - we are just other customers.  And it isn't clear whether they are still adding testers right now (and if they are, how they select them and if there is any way to "volunteer").

Anyone having playback issues? My playback/video quality is horrible. its as if I'm watching a scratched DVD. It even happens with youtube and Hulu apps. checked for update and only had one for the remote.
