Re: DIRECTV NOW on your Apple TV

First, the app sucks (I am using AppleTV 4th gen). I get that it is a 1.0 version and will be updated to be better in time. Honestly, I don't even care about using the DirecTV Now app right now. I care more about being able to use the network apps (History, AMC, Fox Now...) to watch TV content. The problem is that DirecTV Now is not an option for service provider when I try to connect those apps... or the AppleTV app (one sign-in feature). Instead of making us all wait for the DirecTV Now app to be good, please use your time to ensure it is a listed provider so we can use the apps that are good to watch content now (while we wait for your app to become usable).

Audio but no video defect in directv now on appletV

Addressed to any ATT person that can provide useful information on this topic:

when will the problem of audio but no video on appletv be fixed?

To marketing: what credit will be supplied for paying for a defective product?

I'm out $105 for trying an ATT product that is defective.

Support says in chat no refunds or credits will be offered. 

That's not going to fly.

Re: Audio but no video defect in directv now on appletV

yes me too, $105 down the drain for pre paying. Sling worked much better so did HULU and Netflix. This app is so buggy.

Re: Get audio but no video error qp1004006

As far as the Home screen issue, I was using a Harmony remote to control the Apple TV and found that it will not duplicate the "Up Swipe" function of the remote that comes with the Apple TV  remote.  The one  remote gesture seems to be the only way to get you out of the guide and returns you to the Home screen. Unfortunatly I have keep the Apple TV remote handy. I would suggest DirectTV add a Home menu button to the guide screen.

Re: Get audio but no video error qp1004006

I too prepaid $105 for this crappie app. I plan to return the Apple TV unopened box to Apple Store for a store credit of $140 and use it in future. I am surprised that we don't have option to return the Apple TV and get back 105. I am feeling very bitter about this purchase.
