This doesn't work for DirectTV.It works for DirecTV Stream.
Thanks for replying.

I'm very clear that this is for DirecTV Stream. What I was hoping for was to do the following:
1.) Download the android "DirecTV" app from one of the apk websites.
2.) Sideload said APK file.
3.) Use my satellite credentials to login in and what live tv via my streaming device.

Our satellite login works now on DirecTV APP (androidOS & iOS & iPadOS ). However, if I side-load the DirecTV APP onto a streaming device, I get an error when signing in.

Has anyone else got this to work?

I thought the Android phone google play store app merged Dtv Stream and Directv Satellite into one app?? That's what the play store says--it's for Dtv Satellite and Stream customers. I guess the Fire tv apk wouldn't ---but there is a new android apk at apk mirror.
you're right, they did merge it.

However, when installing the APK that you would install on an android phone onto a streaming device (shield tv), it does not allow me to sign in. I get an error. I've been trying to do this since they allow both customers to use the directv app.

I believe the app is detecting the HDMI signal (I'm guessing here, I have no experience within this space).

Are you using version 4.0.36.37618 from apk mirror or the one posted in here recently- 4.0.35.37607 --which is the Fire Tv version. If you are trying to use the Fire tv version 4.0.35.37607 you are probably getting that error b/c Fire TV doesn't have that merged app. U need to use the 4.0.36.37618 at apk mirror---that is the merged apk one.

AntrixHDMan, would you be able to look into this and see if the android OS verison of DirecTV works with satellite login? I would be happy to share mine account if you don't have one. PM me if this is of interest to you. :)
Which device are you attempting to install the DTV Stream app (4.0.36) on? Looks like in one comment you mention TV, then you mention ShieldTV in another.

I'm wondering if you're facing the same issue I'm having. Loading the latest DTV Stream app no longer works for me on generic AndroidTV boxes (MiBox's, Tv's with Android OS built-in). However, the latest app, 4.0.36.x.x.x does work on my ShieldTV STB's.

I too was trying to get live TV working for one of my parents. The DTV Stream app on the MiBox was working. But then prompted for an update and wouldn't run. Once updated, and attempting to sign in, I was getting a 500 error I believe. I just wound up getting them a FireTV stick since the DTV stream app is supported on there.

Hi Tnicko,

I have no issues with the DirecTV Stream app. It has always worked for me.

When I refer to "TV", i'm referring to my streaming device (Shield TV).

In my earlier post on this tread, I mention in full detail as to what I'm trying to achieve here. Simple put, I want to login using the "androidOS DirecTV app" on my "Shield TV", using my "DirecTV Satellite credentials". This has nothing to do with DirecTV Stream. :)

Well, there is only one DirecTV app for android which services both DirecTV (satellite) & DirecTV Stream (streaming) customers. It's called just DirecTV. "DirecTV Stream" is just the name of their streaming service, where "DirecTV" is their old school satellite service.

I personally am using the DirecTV app on my Shield TV box, version 4.0.36 (sideloaded). But I am a streaming customer only.

The issue may be your credentials and not the app itself. Even though the DirecTV app states it is for DirecTV & DirecTV Stream customers, you may have to call and inquire as to why your satellite credentials aren't working for the app.

Do you have an android phone so u can install the Directv app on it and test your credentials there? If you don't have an android phone you can download and install and android emulator onto your pc---go to google play store---install the Dtv app on it and test it. I use Bluestacks https://www.bluestacks.com/

I haven't gotten any of these APKs (Amazon or Play) to work on my Nvidia Shield Pro since updating to LineageOS for microG 18.1 (Android 11).

I'm using MagiskHidePropsConf and Universal SafetyNet Fix to get Widevine L1 support, which works flawlessly with Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Hulu and HBOMax.

When I run the DirecTV Stream apk from Amazon (DIRECTV STREAM_4.0.35.37607.apk), I can login and use the guide as intended. But as soon as I start to stream content, it errors out after a few seconds of struggling to play and then hits me with a "Looks like we ran into some trouble loading this content. Please try again in a bit. (100006-008)."

Here's a link to the logcat output when trying to run with Widevine Level 1: https://paste.pryv8.org/p/nauticalwindxerinae (XDA wouldn't save the attachment when I tried here). And also attached a photo of the visual glitches occurring on the screen

I know it's a DRM/Widevine related issue because if I disable MagiskHidePropsConf or use a Magisk Module to disable DRM, it works by falling back to a lesser quality stream. I don't want to sacrifice my L1 abilities in every other app just for DirecTV

---

When I try to use the new Play apks (4.0.36.37618), the app immediately quits on launch and outputs the following in logcat:

Code:
09-09 18:38:00.694  8794  8888 F com.att.tv: java_vm_ext.cc:577] JNI DETECTED ERROR IN APPLICATION: java_class == null
09-09 18:38:00.694  8794  8888 F com.att.tv: java_vm_ext.cc:577]     in call to GetMethodID
09-09 18:38:00.694  8794  8888 F com.att.tv: java_vm_ext.cc:577]     from boolean tv.youi.youiengine.CYIActivity.nativeSurfaceCreated(android.view.Surface)
09-09 18:38:01.150 25970 25970 D GmsGcmRegister: onBind: Intent { act=com.google.android.c2dm.intent.REGISTER pkg=com.google.android.gms }
09-09 18:38:01.227  8794  8888 F com.att.tv: runtime.cc:655] Runtime aborting...

So it seems like the Play apks are heavily dependent on Google Play Services and MicroG won't cut it.

---

Fortunately, I can use the app from the Samsung TV -- but ideally I'd love not to be signed into any Samsung service and would be able to disable all their "smart" functions.

I've been searching for a better alternative that's Android friendly, but every other service seems to be missing a favorite network or two -- DirecTV is the only one comparable to traditional cable/satellite

I have tried installing DirecTV 4.0.36.37618 on my Shield Pro 2019 via the Downloader app and via sideloading from my Android phone. The app doesn't appear in the GUI, but I can find it in the installed apps list. When I click on it, the screen goes blank for a second and then closes out. Am I doing somethng wrong?

This happens to me as well. I could be wrong, but I wonder if it's detecting the HDMI signal?

The one that worked for me (using your directv stream login) is the one floating around this forum. Which I've posted below.

So there's no way to use a DirecTV (non Stream) login even when using the modified version of the app?
I have the exact same question. It really doesn't make much sense. I have an Apple TV 4K 2021, a Fire Stick Max, and a Chromecast Ultra on my three TV's. If I had Xfinity or our local Fiber Optics cable TV provider, I could install their app and watch live TV on my Apple TV and my Fire Stick. I can't do that with DirecTV. I can only install DirecTV's app for people with satellite dishes on my Android phone and my iPad and then cast live TV to my Chromecast or Airplay live TV to my Apple TV. If DirecTV was worried about people getting something for nothing, why did they leave Chromecast and Airplay enabled on their mobile app for people with sattelite dishes? What is the difference between giving us the ability to cast and giving us an app for our AppleTV's and Firesticks? How hard would it be to port the DirecTV mobile-only app for people with dishes to a Fire Stick or an Apple TV? I assume it would be harder to port it to the Apple TV with all of Apple's proprietary nonsense.

I'm using version 5.29.001 directv apk. It says I have to upgrade but I just click ok and it lets me use the app. This is with satellite credentials on a Shield tv. You have to use mouse toggle or a bluetooth mouse for part of the navigating. Hope that helps. This is NOT the Directv Stream app.
Any hope of getting this for Fire Stick or Apple TV?
