Is it possible to get the Directv App(not the directv NOW app) to work on the nvidia shield? I downloaded the latest version and sideloaded it but it does not login with my credentials. It just keeps going back to the login screen. Thank you!

I decided to reset my TV last night and now I don't need to spoof the location! I don't understand what's different. [emoji2373] It worked without even enabling location in the app.

I think it was the one prior to the most recent one or the one before that.

Try DirecTVNow_2.0.16.01144_HBR_ADrem_Root
Or
DirecTVNow_2.0.16.03256_HBR_ADrem_Root

It could be that they patched that as well.

I haven't been keeping up with the app, have been a bit busy. But it seems that DTV hasn't had a update in a while , maybe they can't afford to keep pushing the updates as frequently [emoji6]

Hi, first, thanks for doing this.
I have a Gbox Q (first one, not Q2 or Q3).
I have tried installing 3 different ones, the two latest Stable versions under "Amazon app store not needed" and the latest one under HBR.
Unfortunately, all three give me a "parse error." Could this have to do with my android version? I'm on 4.4.2
Thanks again

I'm going to ask a (potentially) stupid question.

Is/does the Fire TV version of Hulu work on the Shield TV. If so, how/where can I get my hands on the apk to sideload?

Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately not possible , the Hulu app has been requested many times. Even with Amazon verification removed it crashes. Some fire TV apps are not compatible with the shield tv

Sorry I saw this on the previous page. I hope it answers your question.

I want to say thank you for these apk's,

I am a noob, but was able to successfully install the 2.0.16.04257_HBR_modified.apk on both a Sony Z9F and a Sony A9G without any trouble. DirecTV Now worked fine right off the bat. Picture quality is better than I expected and at least as good as my previous DirecTV satellite feed. Also happy that the DirecTV Now app can be navigated using the D-pad. No need for a mouse/touchpad.

For the benefit of other noobs: I uploaded the apk to my Google Drive account. Then I installed Solid Explorer File Manager on the TV , used it to log into Google Drive, and then downloaded the apk. Once downloaded you can select the downloaded apk in Solid Explorer to run the installer. The DirecTV app then showed up in my list of apps, and I was able to move it to my favorites row on the Home screen. No need to download or install Sideload Launcher. I am in Texas and did not have any issues with location. As my TVs are hardwired with LAN cable, I actually have their wifi turned off. I assume DirecTV probably checks IP address to get rough location.

Hey everyone I pulled the Android TV app of Att android box. I was able to install it, open it up but then it shutdown. The TV app tries to act as a home launcher. If anyone wants to give it a go here is a link to the apk. If other apks are needed let me know and I'll try to get them. Also you van have both this app, and the Fire TV installed at the same time.

Here is the link I'll leave it up for a little bit.

I tried, but got nowhere.

I like the AT&T android box's interface. I like the one button guide access, channel numbers, and previous channel button. I also have a Logitech hub remote that has all of those buttons, so this would be the ultimate setup for me.

I have a beta box and found several other AT&T apps or services running that may be necessary for this to work.

Has anyone had any luck with this one?

I wanted to try Directv Now since I've heard the picture quality is better then Comcast at 8mbps. Installed the modified .apk on my shield, app worked great, nice and fast didn't have any issues. After viewing the same channel and switching between apps (HDHR View) vs DTVN, the picture quality is almost identical between the 2. DTVN's picture isn't as good as I was hoping on my new OLED, so I canceled DTVN and will stick with my current setup as the price is similar.

It looks pretty good on my 65" OLED, it's not Netflix or Amazon good but it's good enough for me :D

    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.

    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.
