Re: Roku?

It does not work w/ Roku Period, I say you can screen share if your phone supports it, to the Roku Device that is what I am doing.

access on Roku?

Hi! I am interested in this service but I will not sign up until it is available through the Roku.  Is there any updated time frame for DirecTV Now to be available through Roku?

Re: access on Roku?

They said early 2017.  It's not up to Roku.  It's up to DTVN writing the app for Roku

Re: access on Roku?

We signed up to lock in the price at 35 a month for 100 channels.  Using it with a chromecast now.  Apparently the fire stick we prepaid for is on backorder.  We already have 2 roku devices as we had sling before.  I do realize the service is less than a month old, but hoping they get the roku app out sooner rather than later as we enjoy our roku devices very much.

Re: access on Roku?

It's not like AT&T to announce something like that more than a few days (maybe a week) in advance. 


Keep in mind while early 2017 might sound like January to you, it could be June.

Notice they didn't even say first quarter 2017.

Re: access on Roku?

Given the utterly craptastic service they currently have using their existing supported platform, it would be a bad idea to jump on it even if they offer Roku support.
