How can I get the DirecTV Now app on my Vizio TV?

To make that a bit clearer: There is no "native" support (app) for Vizio TVs. You can get DirecTV Now on a Vizio TV the same way you get it on any other unsupported TV - you use a supported streaming device (the aforementioned Roku, Fire, or Apple TV) connected to one of the Vizio TV's HDMI ports. (Some?) recent Vizio TVs also have Chromecast capability built in, so if you have one of those, you can cast to the TV from the DirecTV Now app running on a mobile device. (I'm not a big fan of casting, so I personally would go with the outboard device approach.)

You cant its not a supported device.
You will have to use a Roku, Apple TV or Fire TV.

casting to my google fiber tv or through chromecast is very slow
