Directv only playing in a corner of new LG OLED tv

I use Apple TV (connected to WiFi) to play various streaming apps. All of them play perfectly on my new LG tv except Directv. When the logo appears it is full screen, but it is only in the upper left hand corner of the tv screen.

EQUIPMENT RETURN SCAM BY DIRECTV

We decided to cancel our directv due to poor customer service. They kept telling us a recovery kit was being sent, this went on for a few months. And then all of a sudden we talked to someone and they said to bring the equipment to a UPS store and they would package it and send it back to DirecTV.
