DIRECTV AirPlay on AppleTV

DIRECTV AirPlay on AppleTV

When I try to AirPlay a tv show/movie from the DIRECTV app, I get an error message stating, “*yellow-triangle* An error occurred loading this content. Try again later.” Then when I try to do it via screen mirroring, I can hear the sound broadcast but there is no picture. There is only an error stating, “HDMI output is not supported”, but the sound comes through fine.

 

I only experience these errors within the DIRECTV app. I can stream on AirPlay or screen mirroring perfectly using other apps/web browsers. Are your techs aware of this issue? Will there be a fix for this in the near future?

You were lucky.  Streaming via the Lightning-to-HDMI adapter is not supported and never has been.

The Lighting to HDMI adapter uses Airplay to stream the content.

Apple phone through the Lightning adapter uses Airplay. It is all connected.

 

DirecTV does not support or allow the use of Airplay, or any other method, to stream from a mobile device to a TV. Per their agreements with the networks, their business is designed about paying for each authorized TV on the service. The do not allow the use of a mobile device to get a free TV on the service, especially if that TV might be in another location thereby violating the Terms of Service.

 

Bottom line is mobile viewing is just that, for viewing mobile only, not streaming/casting/airplay, etc. to a TV.

 

If you want internet streaming to TV get a streaming TV provider (DIRECTVNOW, Netflix, Hulu, etc.)
