Streaming live TV in Google Chrome for W10 after Flash Player end of life.

What options will AT&T/DirecTV offer to stream live tv in Google Chrome for Windows 10 after Adobe Flash Player's end of life on 12/31/2020?

Hey, @DMilner, we'd be glad to clarify your streaming concerns.

 

At the moment we don't have any information on what changes will be made as a result of Adobe Flash Player's end of life, but we'd recommend reaching out about this again closer to that date, in December. No doubt our information will be more readily available by then.

 

Let us know if you have anymore questions, thanks for choosing AT&T!

I am also concerned about the solution AT&T / DirecTV will provide once Adobe flash player ends on December 31, 2020. It would be reassuring to customers to have an official response from the company as the expiration date is approaching soon. I would hate to have a disruption in services as the ability to stream programs, including live sports, is the main reason I signed up for DirecTV. I hope customers receive information in the near future.

How about a prompt response *now* regarding Flash? It no longer works on the latest version of Safari — 14.0. It's also become more problematic with Chrome. Amazing that Directv has done NOTHING to prepare for the death of Flash. I have called tech support several times regarding this issue, and I either get reps who deny it's an issue or they agree it's an issue but offer no solution. I can no longer stream Directv shows in my package, and no one in customer support seems to care. It's like they want customers to go elsewhere.

Just an FYI at least for a couple of months you can use Flash with Microsoft Edge for Mac and it works with Directv

There was mention that they do have plans regarding the end of Flash, but for whatever reason the details are not ready to become public and is not yet announced to their call center agents either. So you will need to use another browser other than Safari for now until more info is provided.

 

Flash support doesn't cease until the end of the year, so still some time left for any changes or announcements before that happens. All we can do is keep an ear out for now.

They probably are introducing a new app and don't have any plans to fix the current problem.  Sometime before 12/31/2020 they will have everyone upgrade to a new app with a built in viewer and the need for flash player will go away.
