NBC Sports?

Thanks for all that you guys do in this and the old thread. I'm slow to update as most of my household are macs and getting these apks from my mac to the fireTv is problematic (one problem at a time!). I downloaded the aptoideTV apk this morning ( I know 2 steps above newbie) to try out the nbc sports app there-it gives me an error on load. Is there any way to not have to load the amazon store to use the nbc sports app? My directv app modifed -no amazon is working and I just don't want to screw with that.
Thanks again!

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

Why is it that ad removal works on some networks and not others? Anyone know?

I don't know the answer but I noticed that after installing the HBR modded app last week, that i was getting ads on all networks over the last few days. I uninstalled/reinstalled the same apk and the ads are now gone again. I'm not sure how the app could be updated since i have never installed the Amazon store..

All I did was delete the code for the ad servers, unless there is code lingering somewhere else I'm not sure how they disappear and come back

I guess I'm asking if anyone else noticed this. I think I see it on Bravo and CW. Just wanted to be sure it's normal for now.
Thanks for the mods.

I did install that one and it occurs to me now that I have not rooted my shield which I am guessing is a factor(?). The app itself works great for me, definitely no complaints, more of a curiosity. I have only had the shield for a month and haven't looked into much beyond the DTV app.

I'll run thru on demand shows for a whole bunch of networks and post results. As the other person you replied to said, I have definitely seen ads on Bravo. I know there were no ads on SyFy immediately after install but there were ads a week later for the same show.

Thank you so much for all your work on this!! AT&T should pay you for this.

Your Welcome, credit goes to Veeco for the HBR stuff and JoeRockhead for the ads and root support. But I'll take credit for the time spent doing this[emoji6]?

Yes I always follow the same steps when uploading. Turns out I still had the Amazon store installed and was using the HBR mod file. I uninstalled both DTVN and the Amazon store, then re-installed my cloned file with location spoof that I originally created and now it's working fine.

    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.
