Can i DIRECTV Stream from home and another location?

Hi, My child recently moved away from college, we currently have Hulu Live and found that she cannot access live or recorded shows in her dorm (she is about 1 hour away from us).  Does Directv Stream have the ability to log in both at home and in her dorm through her Roku device and access Live and recorded shows in both locations?

Yep the service is sketchy at best….. I have had to delete and re add all of my  streaming devices both at home and at the camper EVERY TIME we go away for the weekend…. Roku says it’s Directv And Directv says it’s Roku

I am full time RV. I use the service everywhere I go. No problems at all. I use both Fire Sticks and Roku's as I travel. Just what is your issue?

So can the three streams outside the home be used by family members without violating the TOS, while at the same time having the 20 in home streams available?  It seems the answer above is yes, but TOS was not mentioned.

They have no way to determine who the streamer is since the account holder credentials is used.

Just connect to the Internet - run the app - and enjoy. Just like any location. All you need is the app and an internet connection.

I am a regular (not streaming) DirecTV customer (i.e. I have a satellite dish and a receiver/DVR at my house). I’m away for the winter and have logged in to DirecTV’s Roku channel at my new location.


Is there any way for me to access the shows I recorded on my home DVR? Is there any way to set up new recordings that I could access from here or do I have to watch things live if the program isn’t available through OnDemand)?

@RobinOrrVt Wrong forum. This forum is for the DirecTV Stream internet service, not DirecTV satellite. The 2 services are unrelated and separate paid services. Suggest you post in the correct forum for DirecTV satellite.

Thanks! This is where the link took me when I searched in DirecTV help.

Any chance you could tell

me where to find the appropriate forum?
