I can. This will require the Amazon App Store most likely. Not sure if anyone can remove that from this apk, but here is the Sportsnet Fire apk...

https://www.mediafire.com/file/205necyiraklf9l/Sportsnet_1.0.20.apk/file

FYI, I was able to install and open the app without the Amazon App Store and everything seemed to work, except when you go to Sportsnet Now for live channel coverage it crashes the app. Installing the app store and signing into it made no difference, hopefully ripping out the dependancies entirely lets the NOW portion work

I pulled the TCM APK from my Fire TV, and I've been trying to make that work on Shield, but it has one issue that looks to be a showstopper. Namely, when you try to do a cable provider login, you can't get past the screen where you select your provider. Pressing the select button on a provider makes a confirmation beep, but doesn't actually take you to the login screen. Anyone know of a way to work around this?

I've attached the APK, in case anyone wants to try anything out.

The NOW portion has always worked for me, but I did have the Amazon app store installed before ever opening the SN app.

It's Up, I need testers for the hbr_adrem_ root apk.
Please view some ondemand content and see if ads are present

Edit: Ad removal seems to be broken in the latest release. With that app no live channels load for me. I'll message JoeRockhead to look into it lol

Also on the HBR files the initial pixelation at the start (10-20seconds) is present and very noticeable. But once the full bitrate is achieved the picture looks amazing.

Have the Ad removal and pixelation buffering issues been resolved in this latest version?

Ad removal is broken on the latest release unfortunately att patched it. So if you want ad free you will need to install the previous release.

Initial buffer is still present, not sure what's causing it. They did something on the back end

and sorry guys I haven't really keeping up to date with the thread . Have been really busy.

XUMO has now released an app for Fire TV. I tried to install the Amazon Fire APK to my Shield TV with no luck on my end. The app does install but refuses to load.

Hello all!
I am facing a problem and could not find an answer to it. I installed the latest build of Directv (DirecTVNow_2.0.16.04257_modified.apk) on my
Nvidia Shield. The install went ok but when I enter login credentials I get the following message and it logs me out:
"We're happy you want to try our new app but it needs a few more tweaks" and asks me to try later. I searched this thread to see if I can find
the answer to this problem. But I could not find it. So your help would be much appreciated .

Did you enable permissions and if you have the Amazon app store installed it will need to be removed.

Thanks a lot for your reply. I have set the permissions and don't have Amazon app store (Unless it's installed by default on the shield?)
Only thing I can think of is that I have not done the location spoof ! Can this be the problem?

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

    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.

    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.
