For the new DIRECTV NOW TV Experience, go here for updated Error Message details and troubleshooting.
The below explain DIRECTV NOW error messages and the troubleshooting steps to correct them.
Error Message 10: No Connection

Before restarting your home network, turn off any mobile or set-top device experiencing connection issues. Once the home network has been restarted, power can be restored to these devices.

Error Message 40: Video Error

For now, try the following tips which may also assist:
Error Message 50: Location Services Are Off
Your device's "Location Services" may be turned off. To update:
Error Message 60: Too Many Streams
You have reached the limit of playable devices for your subscription. Currently, you can stream content simultaneously on up to two devices with DIRECTV NOW®.
An additional subscription is required if you need more than two simultaneous streams.
Error Message 70: Blackout
If a game is blacked out from certain channels or subscription packages, you may be able to see it on another channel or on a local broadcast channel, if available in your area.
Sports blackouts are controlled by the leagues, associations and networks that purchase the rights to broadcast individual games. This is also in conjunction with local teams. For example, our agreements with sport leagues and associations restrict us from airing events near where a game is locally broadcast. In other cases, national networks like ESPN and TNT retain exclusive distribution rights to an event.
If a national network has the national rights to broadcast a sports game, DIRECTV NOW customers who live in the home team's area may not be able to watch with their DIRECTV NOW subscription. If a network that DIRECTV NOW carries has national rights to broadcast a game, it will be available on those channels.
Regional sports networks do not obtain national broadcast rights for professional sports.
Channel line-ups are based on the account holder’s billing address and determined by zip code.
Viewing is based on physical location and broadcast market at the time you're watching.
Teams, events, and programs not distributed locally are subject to a blackout.
Error Messages 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85: Action Failed

These errors should be rare and normal functionality should resume quickly. If the error message continues to appear, please close out of the DIRECTV NOW app and relaunch it. We apologize for any inconvenience.

I am getting an error code that is not one of those. It has a qp and the 4 digits. I saw another user who posted that had the same error code. Please get it resolved so the service is usable

I have an Apple TV that is hard wired to a 200 mpbs connection. Absolutely no problem streaming from any other service. I the last two months I have been able to watch less than 4 hours of tv because of streaming problems. directv should be fined by the ftc for their unfair business practice. I will never get service with them again. this has been a total disaster and ripoff.

Well I got the exact same problem last night. AHC was showing a program called "The American Revolution" and DTVN told me it was "blacked out in my area". You're blacking out the War of Independence??? Maybe it's time for a second revolution - against crummy TV services that don't work.
Like DTVN's Chat system. I've yet to be able to establish a connection through that. Amazing - plenty of other companies seem to know how to do this - what's your excuse, DirecTV Now?

in case you are wondering error code 41100 is that you have used a credit card more than twice. I signed up for the seven day trial three times in a row using three different email addresses so i got 21 days for free. when i tried to sign up a fourth time the chat person said due to my credit card was linked to three other accounts i can no longer sign up using that card so i used a different card

I keep getting Error UVP 104 and UVP 1011 when trying to watch TV shows. I have 3 TV's and happening mostly on the newest TV. It's getting frustrating to not be able to watch a full TV show.

Error code 10007-003 will not allow me to watch Fox News Network. Every single other channel works great. I try to load Fox News and I am receiving this error every time I try. Or error 10025-001. Something fishy going on.
