Printable DirecTV Channel Lineup Guides

Hi, I made some printable channel lineups for DirecTV Stream. They make it easier to see the up-to-date channel lineup as well as compare stations for the base plans.  Am I allowed to post links to them?  The idea is to share high quality information and so this is not a promotion.&nbs

Will the AT&T IP phone caller ID Display on Direct TV Stream device?

We were a uVerse customer with bundled AT&T phone and Internet. I've just converted to AT&T DirectTV Stream, and was wondering if I can still get the caller ID display on incoming calls through the AT&T streaming devices the way I did with the AT&T uVerse receivers.

Changing Locations when travelling

I have two homes in different states and travel back and forth pretty often. I was told when I signed up that I can change home locations to view local programming while I am in that location.  However, when I looked at changing the location, it says I can only do it up to 4 times a year.
