Can’t watch mlb or nfl network on directv app?

When I am home away from my standard internet connection of my home receiver, I use my iPad to watch tv on the directv app. I’m able to get my local channels, movie channels, and most everything. However, when I try to watch nfl network or mlb network, it doesn’t let me watch and tells me “connect your device to same network as receiver”. Is his normal for some channels?  I don’t understand why these two channels in particular are restricted from watching away from home when I seem to be able to watch just about everything else? Any ideas?

Yes, that's normal.  DirecTV doesn't have the rights to stream every channel when you're away from home.

This is the DirecTV satellite forum. There's a separate forum for DirecTV Now steaming questions.
