Directv now app. Not working properly


Directv now app. Not working properly

When I open the app on our roku it comes up but no channels will actually play. When I change the channel,  it gives me error code 50001-001. I restarted the roku, made sure it was up to date, and uninstalled and reinstalled the app with no success. The last time I reinstalled it it stopped starting up  fully at all.

Re: Directv now app. Not working properly

On my iMac, I'm getting message that they couldn't play content at this time, to restart app and sign in again. After doing that, and also restarting computer, I still can't get anything to play.


Any one else have these problems, and what is the remedy?
