Re: Streaming Direct TV Now over a mobile hotspot

It should. Have you used your allocation of hotspot data for the month? Are you talking about your phone’s hotspot or a hotspot device?

Re: Streaming Direct TV Now over a mobile hotspot

Well, I don’t use Directv Now but I do use the Directv app on an iPad via iPhone hotspot and it works fine. I know of no reason why the Directv Now app wouldn’t work other than if you used all your hotspot data.

If it's an unlimited plan, your hotspot is limited to 10GB or 15GB of high-speed data depending on the plan.

Re: Streaming Direct TV Now over a mobile hotspot

Thanks for trying to help. I know for a fact that I have not used anywhere near all my hotspot data so there must be some other problem. I guess I need to make a trip to the AT&T store to see if they can help. I appreciate your help!!

Re: Streaming Direct TV Now over a mobile hotspot

Power it all off and then back on.

 

Does other data work over the hotspot?

Re: Streaming Direct TV Now over a mobile hotspot

Is it only the DirectvNow app that doesn’t work? How about other streaming video apps? What device are you using the app on?
