direct tv app for kindle fire

I've always used a Kindle Fire and had no problem using the Direct TV app on the Kindle. When the app was updated there was a message stating that the Direct TV app no longer can be utilized with Kindle Fire. That's a big problem for me as I use it a lot and part of what I felt I was paying for with the service. I called and spoke to someone and was that this is the case and they were working on it. It's now been over a month. I'm trying not to change carriers from Direct TV, but I have checked with the others, and they all support the Kindle Fire. Will this be resolved soon? If yes, how soon?

Do you mean the satellite service DirecTV or the internet streaming service DirecTV Stream? They are 2 different paid subscription services. There has never been an app for the streaming service DirecTV Stream.

I've been using an app for streaming Direct TV for the 3 years we've had Direct TV. There's been an app at Kay that long. April 18th it was 'upgraded'and no longer works on the Kindle Fire where it has worked for 3 years

Download and install the Google Play apk file onto your Kindle Fire and install the Directv Stream app through Google Play.  I did that to my Kindle Fire and the app works perfectly.

Streaming DirecTV is not DirecTV Stream, the forum you have posted. DirecTV Streaming is a service like YouTube TV or Hulu Live TV. If you are a satellite subscriber, then you need to post under the DirecTV Satellite forum. Are you a satellite subscriber?

Yes I am. Sounds like I need to give up. I appreciate the input

You certainly can do that, but the point is the device is not a supported device for the service. Any issues experienced is your issue, not DirecTV's.

No. Your issue is with DirecTV satellite if it is supported on the satellite side. It's just never been a supported device on the internet streaming side.

It's been a supported device until April 18th, and it's not anything I changed. Thanks for the input

Then I will move your post to the satellite forum. Maybe someone there can help you.

If I recall the Kindle lost support for DIRECTV streaming. As stated by a poster before, you need to find an APK file of the DIRECTV app online and download/install that into the Kindle Fire. In the settings of your Fire you need to allow unknown sources in order to install any APK file.

Thank you. I'm old. I'll have to figure that out. I've never heard of an APK file
