Directv app default home channel


Directv app default home channel

The default channel that comes up when I stream live tv through the app on my phone is always CNN. Is there a way to set this to a specific channel of my choice?

Negative. The app is set to default to the lowest channel number. When I am at home that is one of my locals (I forget which one) and when I travel it happens to be CNN (ch 202).

Re: Directv app default home channel

Why doesn’t AT&T just sell off CNN. It’s a ridiculous horrible FAKE NEWS channel that’s an embarrassment to what our country’s founders fought for regarding a “free” press, not one that is corrupt and disingenuous.  AT&T and DirecTV are going to lose me as a multi-decade customer if they don’t either fix CNN and the tanked ratings my money is supporting or sell it off. So horrible AT&T is even associated with CNN.
