I also noticed that on demand is sending out in stereo instead of 5.1. not sure on the video quality. Can that be controlled by the app?
All depends on the specific show, what I do know is that all of the ondemand Audio is in PCM and not Dolby digital Not sure why ATT/DTV did that..

I started playing more on demand content and it looks like it may be dependent on the network? I'm watching some diy on demand and there are no ads so I'll be looking more into this. To do wish the video and sound quality for on demand could be increased.

@ACHILLES R32 is it possible to get the ATT Watch HBR version modified so that amazon app store is not required?

No problem at all! I’ll keep my eyes out for one. I don’t notice any difference from this one to newest though (other than no bugs on the older version).
Here is the DTV now file with just hbr has amazon verification removed

Let me know how that works , in regards to the video loading message

Thanks a bunch. Works like a charm.

I do have a quick question, something changed at some point. Does this app have the same package name as the DirecTV NOW package?

For some reason I can no longer have them installed at the same time. It's not a big deal, just curious more than anything, as it worked until just recently with both installed.

Yeah , I think the package names became identical few releases ago. It will probably change again . They had the same package names at one other time as well.

Achilles: any chance you can extract the updated version of NBC Sports? Seems like they merged both NBC Sports and NBC Sports Gold into a new NBC Sports app, latest version of the NBC Sports app is 4.0 as per the Amazon app store.
While I'm at it, on either NBC Sports or NBC Sports Gold I can't seem to even reach 720p from their streams which is odd, I wonder if they're manually setting a max bitrate value on the Fire TV app for some reason. Has someone experienced the same thing?

Yes I have the same problem regarding the resolution

    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.

    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.
