Why isn't Directv a subscriber option for Amazon Fire TV ???

I got an Amazon Fire TV (similar to Apple TV, essentially a WIFI based set top box to access Internet based content) yesterday. After installing the Showtime Anytime app, I realized that I was stuck b/c Amazon Fire TV didn't list Directv as one of the subscriber choices to confirm you're a subscriber to Showtime. WTF :-(

I just received my Amazon Fire TV.  I had been holding out on buying a Roku because I have an older audio receiver that only uses an optical input for digital sound.  After having installed the Showtime Anytime app, I too was quite disappointed to find that DirecTV does currently support the Fire TV device.  Please, DirecTV, join your competitors and get some support happening for the Amazon Fire TV.

this original post is almost a year old.  Directv still isn't listed as a subscriber option for Amazon FireTV for History channel or A&E (certainly not ESPN).  They've signed the deal with Roku and AppleTV - let's get it done for the FireTV!!

Hurry, your customers want this (although I'm not sure that matter to them).

No, there's no DirecTV App for Amazon Fire or Firestick.

this sucks, I thought by at&t buying Directv they would share their  technology, and Directv would improve in its technology but no real change happened! I guess it's time to go to Xfinity!
