Direct Stream App log in for partner?

Hello! I'm the Account Owner but would like to give my boyfriend, who lives with me, access to the Direct Stream app on his phone for my account. How do I do this without using my User ID and password to my account?

Unfortunately, you can't.  The DirecTV Stream service doesn't support sub-accounts, so you can only log into devices with your account credentials.  (Both sub-accounts and profiles have been requested as enhancements for years.  So far no action, but now that the service is part of a standalone company rather than part of AT&T, perhaps something will eventually happen on this.)
