I am shopping for a new TV that this apk may work with. I have the FireTV choices but I prefer the Android OS. In the living room we are using an Nvidia Shield with the DirecTV apk and works very well. The sure thing in the bed room is the 3rd gen FireTV device. But I am not looking for the separate device since most TV's on the shelves are smart. I am looking at a Philips 43" 4k. A Philips 43PFL5604/F7 to be precise. Any one have experience with this apk on something similar? If this work around works on such a TV I will pick it up. If not I will fall back to the FireTV's again. Which really is no big deal. I would prefer FireTV than any Roku devices if I have to.

Update: I just found out this specific model is not officially supported on my harmony remote. I could manually configure it like I have done in the pass but would rather it be native support. DTVN is another story. If I could use this APK and the remote worked I would be just fine with that cause I know this is a quality apk. Thanks though. Guess I will settle for a FTV after all.

Update 2: OK I am usually not this indecisive about things but it was brought to my attn that I could possibly use a similar remote profile for this specific Model number. So with your patience; the question is again on the table on whether anyone has had any experience with this apk on a similiar Philips TV.

I don't seem why the app wouldn't work on it since it is a Android TV. You might have to do some location spoofing . But side loading the app shouldn't be a problem.
Hey bro long time lol ah can you see if there is a updated motor trend ondemand app mine stopped working last night said theres an update

I tried this just after updating my Shield to Pie. After the Pie update, Direct TV Now HBR app that was already installed still works. I tried the HBR of the ATT Watch TV App, and when launching (after setting the permissions multiple times), I get Hmm....something went wrong. Please Try Again. Any ideas? I haven't tried uninstalling the Direct TV Now app out of fear perhaps it doesn't install correctly on Pie.

Update #1: I moved it from being installed on my SD card to the device memory, and that seems to have worked to make it start. However, I can't seem to login to the app with my Direct TV Now credentials. Is this not the app Direct TV Now is moving to, or this is only for the new ATT service?

I have the same problem. I had to re-install dtv now. I guess they haven't moved over the accounts yet for people with dtv now accounts only.

yeah AT&T love confusing us

- DirecTV Now is being rebranded to AT&T TV Now
- AT&T TV, a separate streaming TV service, is coming soon
- A single app called AT&T TV will be how users access both services

    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.

    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.
