Will THIS TV Work?
First, some foundation!
Longtime user of Uverse and older non-smart tv. Ready to switch to Directv Streaming and upgrade to OLED 4K smart tv.
I'm having trouble getting a straight answer whether the new smart tv will actually work with Directv Streaming app and Gemini Air device.
“Sony 65” Bravia XR A80L OLED 4K
smart Google TV, Google Assistant.”
“Supported Internet Services: Netflix, Disney Plus, Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max, AirPlay 2, Peacock, Apple TV, Paramount Plus, Bravia Core, ESPN+
Has an Android OS.”
I called Directv Streaming customer service because I had read comments online that only certain smart tv’s (Samsung) will work.
The CS rep said “if the tv doesn’t list Roku, it will not allow the Directv app to be downloaded/installed and it won’t recognize the Gemini Air device.”
So maybe I’m just slow but in the setup guide it even directs you to Google to download more apps after plugging into the OLD ‘dumb’ tv and Gemini will work but not on a smart tv that also has an Android OS like the Samsung?
I just want to make sure if I’m gonna drop $1,700 on a “smart” tv, it’s going to be smart enough to work with Directv Streaming.
Any clarity on the above Sony is appreciated!!
