Do you have DIRECTV STREAM (streaming-only) or DirecTV (satellite service) and trying to use their limited streaming options?

What exactly are you needing help with?

RE: Watch Directv stream on my windows laptop.  I am told by Directv that I cannot watch Directv stream using my computer!?  The windows HP Sprectre laptop (new) has access to internet, and I browse with Chrome.  I don't understand why I can't watch Directv Stream.  I also have a Directv Stream box that I use with our main TV.  But on the laptop, when on Directv Stream, specifically the Watch Now, I can select a program, then it "begins to load" but never finishes and all I see is a blank  tourquoise screen!  Thanks if anyone has a suggestion.  :-)

Yes you can stream the service on a computer. Make sure you have any extensions, blockers, VPN disabled. Many are known to cause issues like you are having. Also try running in a incognito mode window.
