Okay.

Roku doesn't build the apps. None of the major platforms -- Roku, Apple, Google, Amazon -- build the apps.

It's up to DirecTV to build an app if they want one. That's true for any platform.

AT&T has recently spun off its Directv satellite and ATT TV streaming to a new operator.  They have just changed the name of ATT TV to Directv Stream.  They likely have not yet updated their available app on Roku to the new name.

The AT&T TV app is still available -- give that a try.

I don't know.  I have Directv satellite so I don't have a Directv streaming account to attempt this.  That's why I said "give it a try".

On my roku TV I tried using my direct TV credentials on the att app and directv streaming. Neither worked. Wish I could tap into the direct TV channels I am paying for.

If you are talking about your credentials for a Directv SATELLITE account, they won't work for DirecTV Stream.  They are two different subscriptions.

Many of your DirecTV satellite channels, though, have their own Roku channel apps that you can log into with DirecTV as your "tv provider".

Directv says a Roku 3500x is compatible with Dtv Stream - but I can't find the app.  Roku says it's installed.

Sure enough, DirecTV says their app works with the model 3500 Stick. But I wouldn't try it. Roku itself stopped supported that device years ago.
