DIRECTV Now xbox app


DIRECTV Now xbox app

The website says they are working on an native directtv Xbox app... 


I'm currently using YouTube TV on the Xbox and it's really good, but since I have better value with directv. Is there a way to solve this? 


Or I need to cancel direct TV now?

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

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.
