AT&T TV xbox app

The website says they are working on an native AT&T TV Xbox app... 

 

I'm currently using YouTube TV on the Xbox and it's really good, but since I have better value with AT&T. Is there a way to solve this? 

 

Or I need to cancel AT&T TV?

Re: DIRECTV Now xbox app

What I do is use AirServer Xbox the app cost $20 BUT (I make new accounts and use FREE trials) with this app on your Xbox you can cast the DirecTV Now app to your Xbox as if it was AirPlay and watch like that. that’s the closet way

Re: DIRECTV Now xbox app

@Jrandomuser Your Your June14,2018 1:10am comment is quiet possibly the most laughable and unintelligent thing I have seen on these forums.  It clearly shows you have little knowledge of the subject of which you speak.  “If it’s even possible given the resources...on the Xbox one” are you working with a  Commodore 64 as your most advanced piece of technology?  They could creat an app that would work on the Xbox in very very little time if they wanted.  AT&T U-verse has been on the Xbox for YEARS (since the Xbox 360).  YouTube’s been on for years.  Netflix longer than any of them.  So to say if its even possible given the current limitations of the Xbox is absolutely laughable and shows your lack of knowledge or Your just playing stupid.

  The fact has very likely been a windows based app since the inception of the service and for some reason they have chosen not to put it out.  In fact even if Microsoft for some reason denied them the ability to use a Windows (Xbox) app on the Xbox, they could just as easily turn around and make a version that works in the internet explorer or edge browser and not need Microsoft’s approval of an Xbox app.  The truth is there is a very specific reason they have chosen not to support Microsoft devices or browsers.  What that reason is, I do not know but it’s very obvious they have gone out of there way not not support these devices and software.  I find this very disrespectful to its customers when a large amount have asked about this and AT&T refuses to give a truthful answer.  If they don’t want to support them then they should have the courage to simply come out and say “we aren’t going to support them, the reasons are our own so stop asking.”  But that wouldn’t make since since U-verse is supported on Xbox and Microsoft browsers.

Incorrect.  They do specifically claim in their support that Xbox one support is coming soon.

Re: DIRECTV Now xbox app

Just Faust FYI, I actually got someone at AT&T  gave an answer other than “support is coming soon”.  This person claims that while she doesn’t have a date we will finally get the app but we will have it this year.

"This year for sure" is looking pretty unlikely now on 12/30.

They can't get the current devices to perform correctly. I don't see the Xbox ever being supported with DTVN beta testing a branded device just for them.

Re: DIRECTV Now xbox app

Hi all,

 

This has been an ongoing question for some time. 

 

I did some poking around and as of now, there is no update if or when an XBOX app will be available. If I hear anything, I will let everyone know.
