Welcome to the most extensive AT&T TV (formerly DirecTV Now) and Fire TV repository thread.

Over the last few years I have gathered various AT&T/DirecTV Now apks and other Fire TV apks.
My plan is to continue uploading the latest AT&T TV apk files and various Fire TV apps until they are officially available on the Shield TV.

Feel free to comment and request any Fire TV apks that I have not uploaded , I'll do my best to keep the apps up-to-date.
Since it's time consuming I may not update the less popular apps frequently. Unless someone requests it.

I want to thank anyone that contributed to the previous thread. Please continue to post any questions or issues you guys have .

Please read the FAQ some of your questions may already be answered.

AT&T TV Android TV/ Fire TV FAQ

Which devices does this app work on?
Shield TV 2015/2017 Pro and non Pro versions, Nexus Player , Mi Box and other Android TV boxes .
Also confirmed that the app works on Sony Bravia Android TVs 2017 and up models, anything above version 2.0.13.05128 will require location spoofing on Sony TVs. Continue reading if you have questions about location spoofing

Q: Which version do I install modified unmodified or High Bitrate?
You can install either one, but they cannot be installed simultaneously.
Tip: if you have any other apps installed that require the amazon app store to be side loaded, use the _amazon version.

The higher bit rate apk has been tested to work on shield TV 2015/2017, it most likely works on other devices as well but i have not confirmed . If you have a low end device and limited bandwidth please use the DTV Now_Amazon apk. Also see .txt file in Higher Bitrate folder if you have questions.

I want to thank Veeco for discovering this mod. And IcerJo for beta testing the highbit apks for me .
and for additional bitrate testing done by IcerJo see post https://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=78761171&postcount=372

Q : Why do you have a modified version, how is it different?
The modified version does not require the amazon app store to be installed. All that is removed from the modified version is the amazon app store verification.
No longer updated after version 2.0.15.02146 (Please see .txt file in the modified folder or read original post for more details)

Q: Cant log into the App getting Error 201
Check the email or password you are inputting. There may be an extra space in the email field.
For example: [email protected] com as opposed to [email protected]
Credit and Thanks for this tip goes to uicnren

Q: DirecTV Now Not Authorized Error Message
1. Remove Amazon App Store (if installed)
2. Clear Data and Cache
3. Settings -> Apps -> DirecTV Now -> Clear Data/Cache
4. Make sure you have the permissions set for the DirecTV app.
5. Settings -> Apps -> DirecTV Now -> Permissions -> Location (ON)
Credit and Thanks for this tip goes to Johnny14o

Q: I have no picture, sound or get a error 40 message. What should I do?
Some users have reported that running the modified version results in video and audio issues. If you are having such issues with the modified version, try the unmodified version.

Q: Live TV has no sound, but on demand works.
Check the audio settings from the shield settings menu, users have reported that turning of surround sound or adjusting other sound options helped them resolve the issue


Q: Application can’t determine location or won’t play any channel (Gray Screen).
Enable both storage and location permissions and also under location select use Wi-Fi to estimate location
Sometimes it may take multiple toggles for the new permissions to register and a device restart maybe required.
Or you may need to spoof your location if using other Android TV devices such as Sony X900e , MiBox, etc. See last below for Spoofing instructions

Q: How to spoof your Location?

See method#2 ,if you don’t want to purchase app cloner


Download app cloner and see video for steps.
. Credit goes to whiteboi-hakz for the video!

Location Spoofing is also necessary if you wan to run version 2.0.14.03143 and up on your Sony Android TVs .
Or if your Android TV device, fails to find your location even after you enabled the necessary settings and restarted the device multiple times. Once location is spoofed you do not need to re enable location and storage permissions.
Video on me using version .02146 on my Sony X900e with spoofed location.

App Cloner, is no longer available on the app store , see link to download. https://plus.google.com/communities/110152846393129525806
Premium features must be unlocked for location spoofing to work . Sideload the App Cloner apk and to purchase premium features search "App Cloner " on Google Play Store. Cost is $3.99
If you get cloned app is device locked message , re clone app but enable device lock and key in device # to do this go to
clone settings >launching options>device lock> put in the device #

Method #2
Credit and Thanks goes to marc.ientilucci
1. Enable Developer mode
2. Install Fake GPS ( link https://apkpure.com/fake-gps/com.blogspot.newapphorizons.fakegps )
3. In developer settings, choose the Fake GPS for mock locations
4. You will need the coordinates, so head over to google maps on your phone / pc and get the latitude and longitude of where you'd like to set your location.
5. Open the Fake GPS app and search - plug in your coordinates.
6. Click start

This apply to the FireTV app on Shield? Anyone know how to bring up stats for nerds on the Shield??

FS1 & FS2 are now in 1080P/60.
https://www.reddit.com/r/DirecTVNow/comments/9npmpx/fs1_fs2_are_now_in_1080p/
I don't see why it wouldn't and I'm sure if a update is required they will release it . But I'll upload it either way lol

Somewhat off topic but I also read a article recently that they were going to start beta testing again for VR . If they do we got to jump on it[emoji23]

Original article
https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/directv-now-will-let-you-watch-four-concurrent-live-streams-in-2019/

"AT&T has not commented on plans to bring this new feature to other devices, but AT&T typically brings new features to most of the devices they support. Hopefully this new DIRECTV NOW beta will not be limited to AR headsets."

Would you be so kind as to post the Fire TV version of Adult Swim? Would appreciate it greatly.
Ill try and see if it works tonight

Unfortunately the app doesn't work with the shield tv. I get a Adobe access enabler missing error message.

Not sure how to resolve that , first time I have seen that error. I uploaded the file under the broken apps folder if you want to test it yourself. Go to main post for link

What location should you use as a spoof, I'm getting the error can't stream to this location.
Here is the local channel search on their site. I would pick a popular city thats Eastern time , Central or Pacific. And go from there.

If you look through the other directv thread they have some apps that apparently work at spoofing the location. The posts were within the last month or two. I'll have to look at the thread over the weekend to see what apps worked

Channel locator DTV now

http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/packP...tId=att_cms_local_channels&_requestid=2711973

I would probably do NYC, LA .

-------------------

Couple posts I found from the old thread .

Credit goes to whiteboi-hakz and all others that contributed.

Ok found the best method for everyone to get around the location issues

Step 1 download app cloner

Step 2 put the dtv now apk on your phone (don't install it just put it on sd card)

Step 3 open app cloner and find your dtv now apk click it and under the privacy settings go-to spoof location
Set it where you want hit CLONE

Done! It won't be a issue ever again even with the future updates !

P.s app cloner is a paid app I suggest everyone buy it for future releases of dtv now


After I enabled the location and storage my dtvnow has worked perfectly I didn't have to do anything else.



I am outside the u.s hence why that was not working for me lol I live in the U.s just not there ATM so watching it outside was a trick [emoji848] but that method worked best and didn't require floater spoof etc



How did you get around the device lock when its cloned on your phone but installed on the shield? Or did you manually enter the device id into the clone?



Buy the premium features of app cloner

Then download the dtv now apk from the links in this thread

Put it on your mobile phone (don't install it on your phone just put on internal storage ) go-to app cloner open it
Go-to the file tab and click the + icon choose pick from file find your dtv now apk

It will open the settings for cloning then scroll down to privacy option click it go down to location spoof click it

Pick your location it will save it then click the tick to clone it

Once it's cloned go-to cloned apks tab hit the 3 dot menu on your cloned app and choose save file

Then move the apk to your usb stick via PC and install it on your shield and open it up delete any other dtv now apps off your shield

There should be no device lock now


You my friend are a legend. Latest version of the app now working down under. Many thanks!



Your welcome mate enjoy! This method will work for the future updates also so just rinse and repeat when there's a new version uploaded here

I have the premium app cloner and am trying to clone the mobile 2.0 apk but when I select spoof location the screen just flashes opens for a split sec then goes back to the same screen without giving me a chance to select a location. Any ideas what would cause this?

    Please uninstall and reinstall at&t TV or try logging out and back in. I believe some people have mentioned this issue on Reddit.

    When watching a recorded show, press and hold the selection button and a menu will come up, then you can arrow over to the skip ahead 15 seconds.
    Thanks, that's what I needed. 2x and 4x ff and rewind work, too.

    So either it uses IP and the locals follow you OR it uses your billing zip maybe and they never change?????
    I forgot where I read it at, but I think it's based on billing zip and not the ip but I could be wrong. I'll try to see what I can find online.

    I just updated the Chromecast to latest software today, now I am getting error 10006-008. I believe that error used to show up before switching 'surround sound format selection' to manual. But now the audio setting change doesn't seem to get passed this issue anymore. Anyone else update and seeing this? My other Chromecast isn't updated and it still loads fine.

    Hey everyone,

    Good news! I figured out how to get high bitrate steams for the DirecTV Now app.

    TLDR: I decompiled the modified apk, found Bitrate settings, increased them to match higher end devices, recompiled.

    ACHILLES R32, I can provide instructions if you want to start incorporating high bitrate versions of the DirecTV Now apk. Otherwise I'd be happy to compile new versions (but it will add a bit of delay if I'm not available).

    Download High Bitrate APKs Here

    Longer version:
    For the last ~2 months I've been using the DirecTV Now Beta streaming box (Osprey). I was lucky to receive and test one for free. The video quality on the beta box is noticeably better, but it's obvious the Shield is a more powerful streaming device. The Apple TV and higher end Fire devices also offer higher quality, so this got me thinking that there must be a way to enable the same quality on the shield. I decompiled the modified apk, which comes from the Fire TV. Inside the files, I noticed profiles for each of the Fire devices and each one had varying levels of Bitrate quality settings. Since we are installing this apk on non-Fire devices, the device name will not match up and it reverts to the Default Bitrate settings. The default bitrates are low (6000000 for live tv) while higher end devices use a setting of 20000000. I increased the default bitrates for live tv, DVR, and VOD. After recompiling and installing, the quality is much better!

    I'm not aware of any way to view video bitrate statistics on the Shield or in the DirecTV App. So my crude way of testing bitrate is to monitor network traffic for 1 minute in my router, for each device. I've linked screenshots for shield low bitrate, shield high bitrate, and the beta (Osprey) box for comparison. You can clearly see the amount of data used is closer to the Osprey.
