Directv on Roku

I was told I can watch directv on the big screen in my motorhome if I bought a roku. I have a roku express. Every time I try to watch a channel I’m paying for it asks me to start a free trial.

Re: My first roku

DirectTV is not supported and I doubt it ever was.

There are many channels that are free see https://channelstore.roku.com/browse/top-free 

And some Premium Channels (pay for) that are all much cheaper than DirectTV.

I doubt there is much on DirectTV that cant be found on Roku.

Like anything new Roku requires a bit of a learning process. But its not hard.

You can search the net for good recommended Channels.

There are many. YouTube is not only a good Channel but its a great resource.

DirecTV app

Can anyone find the DirecTV app on your Roku device? Is so, what did you do to find it? All I can find the ATT TV now app and it won’t login.

          I saw that the AT&T TV Now app is no longer available, but if you have it, you can log in as usual. AT&T TV Now is a separate service from DirecTV.. Besides AT&T TV Now, they now have AT&T TV.

Re: DirecTV app

Did anyone ever find out how to use Directv App to access local channels and DVR  as stated by Direct?

    Check with DirecTV directly, as that's  a third party app not controlled by Roku.
