DirectTV App


DirectTV App

Why am I receiving the error code “the content can not be played at this time. Please try again later.” This app was working fine after we placed our order to come back to direct tv, then when they came out for the install, we have lost the ability to view on our mobile devices. Unable to get the answer to fix this problem when I called direct tv as well. ??
