Firestick use with DIRECTV Now?

Is there any incompatibility between the use of Firestick and DIRECTV Now? I am new to all of this and finding it all a bit confusing. Thank you.

I believe the first generation Firestick will not work, but anything gen 2 or later than that should.

Sounds like you are spoiled from a cable remote. Streaming services using devices are just not the same.

It seems to b the only issue with the fire stick remote that it is so
limited making it a longer process to change channels

That's more of an issue with poor engineers at Direc tv now. Nothing wrong with the remote.

There is a way to do direct channel number entry on Fire TV and other Android devices if you run the beta app. Pair a Bluetooth keyboard, enable number display in the guide, open the guide, enter a number then select. This is the least clunky on a Channel Master Stream+ since its remote has number keys.

I went on amazon looking for a solution but it looks as if there are issues with fire stick 1 & 2 so I will keep searching

Like what, other services have use long press to bring up previous channel,  guide,dvr, search. They use dpad to skip ahead.  Implemented voice control to change channels. I have a Harmony, but I prefer the size and layout of the Fire remote.

What cache? Where? How? TVs don't have any cache I know about and neither
does a firestick.

Your Fire stick - that's your device.
