DirecTV Mod

http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/07/03/six-new-moto-mod-concepts-announced-including-dslr-lens-dire...

 

Above is the link to an article in Android Police. In that article they refer to a DirecTV Mod that allows an HDMI DirecTV streaming stick to be plugged into your phone, enabling DTV subscribers to stream live TV while they're on the go. What am I missing here? Why would someone use this instead of the DirecTV Android app?

Re: DirecTV Mod

I looked at the photo in that article and have never seen or heard of a "DirecTV streaming stick".

Re: DirecTV Mod

I did a Google search on "DirecTV streaming stick".  I wonder if that's a DirecTV-branded version of an Amazon Firestick?  It would be used with DirecTVNow streaming service, not DirecTV satellite service.
