Direct TV Stream (no box)

Has Direct TV been able to find a way to allow a remote to select a channel by number when there is no box?

Unfortunately, there is still no way to directly input a channel number unless you have a Directv device.  Most streaming device remotes do not have numbers on the controls.

Hi there. As DIRECTV Stream remote with number pads is not compatible with other streaming devices, we continue to invest in delivering great service, enhancing the user interface, and aggregating all the premium content customers want for a viewing experience that's second to none. Please check your inbox to address the other issue with your DIRECTV Stream remote. We sent an authentication link to access your account, so we can provide further assistance.
