so instead of using adb, i found a different GPS faker app (https://apkpure.com/fake-gps/com.blogspot.newapphorizons.fakegps).



  1. Enable Developer mode
  2. install the app from the link i posted
  3. in developer settings, choose the Fake GPS for mock locations
  4. i found that you'll 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
  7. profit

Well I found this quoted app and instructions very useful and easy! Only difference is I entered my City, State USA in lieu of the GPS coordinates.

Running latest HBR version. Does this version also remove On demand ads?

I can't seem to get any of the DTVN versions to work on my Nvidia Shield. It is brand new and running 8.0. The app sideloads with ES Explorer just fine with no errors, but I can't get past the login screen. It will never accept what I put in. Error 201. I know the info is correct as my FireTV works fine. I have changed passwords several times with the same result. Eventually, I get a message that says my account has been locked out due to too many failed log in attempts. But, I don't think that is true either as my FireTV works fine and I can log in on my PC and everything is fine.
Tonight, I opened another account with DTVN just to test a new account setup, same results. Any help would be appreciated.

Did you enable the permissions for storage and for location? Are you connected via WiFi or Ethernet?

Most likely, when you are inputting the email address for login, it is adding a space thereby making the login info incorrect.
For example: [email protected] com as opposed to [email protected]

There is a space added by the app after the . in the email address

That is EXACTLY what it was! Wow, that is a couple of hours of my life I will never get back. Thank you very much for pointing that out.

First of all, thank you so much! For the first time, I can get use DirecTV NOW to not only work on my Shield TV, but also be able to watch local stations through spoofing.

I used the newest version that was released on the 13th (the HBR root version), and I even went as far as buying the App Cloner app to spoof the location. When I first got it up, I was getting the error that it was taking longer than expected to load, eventually leading to a “retry” button loop. I thought it didn’t work, but after exiting the app and starting it back up it worked perfectly! I watched a little bit and tried the app again about half and hour later and was stuck in that loop again. I exited and restarted and it again works.

Any idea what could be causing this? I saw in the announcement of this version that you had this happen during initial installation, but it appears to be happening still afterward.

Try spoofing one of the files that just has HBR ( older release) . I'm thinking it maybe the ad removal stuff . But i havnt confirmed it yet.

Do you think it’s worth downgrading to an older version? It seems to be that if I exit the app and restart, it just takes time to load stuff. For example, I exited it and started it up, which was default on MLB Network. It started up with audio slightly out of sync (seems to be fixed if I switch channels and go back, but no big deal), then I opened up the guide and everything said “To be announced.” I tried going to CBS, but it won’t let me click it. I have to instead go and scroll through the channels manually to reach CBS, and then it’ll load. For some reason the guide doesn’t seem to want to load at all anymore, either.

Scratch my last post. I went ahead and spoofed the most recent version before the root version. So far it worked right away and the guide seems to be working now as well.

Would you be able to do a non-ad removal root version of the newest version? Or is that not possible?

Again, thanks so much for your hard work. I’m so thrilled to finally have this setup properly!

    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.

    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.
