Streaming Device Limits

Hello! Just looking for some clarification on the 3 outside of the home devices streaming limit.

1.) If I login to a network’s personal app using a device outside of my home (for example the Game Show Network’s app…not the DirectTV Stream app), does this count as one of my devices?

And 2.) Does the device limit apply to how many devices you can stream at once or how many devices period? To be clear, can I login to say 5 devices outside my home network but only stream 3 or fewer at a time? We have multiple iPads in our family and trying to figure out how this would work.

1.  No, but I do believe specific apps have a limit of the amount of devices, but it is a bigger number like 20 so you shouldn’t be concerned.

2. The device limit applies to the amount of devices using DIRECTV STREAM simultaneously. It won’t apply to just devices inactivate but logged into the account.

On this same topic, is there a method using my DirecTV Stream email account to see the number of concurrent devices having active streams, along with a method to clear any of my streams  ???

Thank you in advance for your prompt response.

How do I log out all devices/apps so that they have to sign back in with new password?

There's no way to force all devices to log out of your account. About the best you can do is change your password. Eventually those devices will need to reauthorize their subscription.

“Eventually” meaning when? I changed the password to try to achieve this and so far no one has been asked to sign in again.
