Simple answer is you cannot.

With satellite TV you pay for each authorized TV on the service. The DirecTV app is not allowed or made for any streaming to TV device (Firestick, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, etc.) or even streaming from phone to TV.

Sorry but you don't get a free TV on the service.

You could try side loading an APK for an Android Phone, but don't hold your breath.  DIRECTV pays its providers a fee "per TV," and as such can't give unrestricted access to TVs.

Some channels have apps that will allow you to login using your DTV account.

You can’t watch DirecTV programming on a TV if you don’t have a DirecTV receiver connected to it.

  2. Connect it to a Wi-Fi network.
  3. Click on the search bar on the home screen.
  4. Search for the DirecTV app.
  5. From the search results, select the DirecTV app.
  6. Click on get, the DirecTV app will start to download on your firestick device.

You are lucky it is not supposed to even be in a firestick app store or it is the AT&T TV now app.

The DirecTV app shouldn't be available on Firstick. They do not allow streaming on a TV as you pay for each authorized TV on the service since it is satellite TV.

If it is the old DIRECTV NOW app, that is a completely separate provider that is streaming only. It was rebranded to AT&T TV NOW because of the name confusion.

So if it is the DirecTV app, then that is an error as it should not work. But I suspect you are pulling up a different app.

The firestick is connected to one of the TVs HDMI ports DTV is connected to a different HDMI port so you have to change the HDMI ports with the TV remote or the DTV remote.

DirecTV and your Firestick each connect to a separate HDMI port on you TV. So you need to change your TV's INPUT (some call it SOURCE) from one to the other as needed. Just like switching to a game console or DVR player. They each use their own port.

@manishareddy 

The DirecTV app is forbidden from being on Firestick or any other streaming device. If you want DirecTV on another TV then you pay the $7 monthly for it being authorized and get a receiver for it.

Now there are some individual channels that have their own app that is allowed to be on a streaming device. They will authorize some content because of your TV provider subscription, but it is limited content. There is no app that covers it all.

There is a separate streaming-only service, which does go on devices like Firestick. It has gone through a couple rebrands so has caused some confusion. Went from DIRECTV NOW to AT&T TV NOW and now with the new co-owner it just became DIRECTV STREAM. This is a completely separate service from DirecTV (satellite).

Hello @Terlou , We would be happy to assist.



You can download the DIRECTV app onto your 4k firestick, sign-in using your DIRECTV log-in information and enjoy some streaming. For more information you can view our Watch with the app guide.



We hope you enjoy!

Well, that answer sure is in contrast to everything else posted. @DIRECTVhelp Are you sure about that? The app guide you posted does not list a firestick as a compatible device.
