Shows won’t load I phone direct tv app

The commercials play, load partially afterwards and then it closes out and says the requests URL was not found on this server. Phone is up to date as well as app. For the past couple of weeks I tried to hook up to my tv using hdmi and it says something about the hdmi output is not supported yet plays the commercials on the tv and not the show. Everything works fine for my husband. Tried deleting and redone loading the app and still having issues.

The DirecTV App does not support streaming video from an iPhone/iPad to your TV via HDMI cable.

You were lucky.  Streaming video via HDMI was never officially supported.  It worked for some, and not for others.  Now it seems they've really shut it down.
