How Does TV Everywhere Work With DirecTV Now?

If you have ever used your cable subscription to sign into a website or app from a cable network, you’ll be familiar with the process. All you have to do is download a support app or visit its website. Then, just select “DirecTV Now” as your TV provider, and sign in with your DirecTV Now credentials.

Do I Have to Pay Extra To Use TV Everywhere With DirecTV Now?

No. Thankfully, DirecTV Now includes TV Everywhere support for no additional fee. It’s included as a feature of your subscription package.

Why Should I Bother Using TV Everywhere Apps With DirecTV Now?

The main reason is to get around simultaneous streaming restrictions. For example, you can only stream on 2 devices with DirecTV Now unless you pay $5 for a third stream. But if two people are using your DirecTV Now subscription on the DirecTV Now app, you can still sign into the TV Everywhere app from a channel like TNT. This will not count against your simultaneous streams.

In addition, some TV Everywhere apps have a large library of on-demand content, which lets you catch up on top movies and past episodes of your favorite shows.

In some cases, you can also use a TV Everywhere app to get around a device restriction, too. For example, the DirecTV Now subscription does not support the Xbox One. But the ESPN app does, so if you want to watch ESPN on your Xbox One, you can download the ESPN app, and sign in with your DirecTV Now subscription.

What Devices Are Supported By TV Everywhere Apps?

Device support varies, depending on the cable network in question. However, most major cable channels support web browsers, iOS and Android devices, and popular streaming platforms like Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast and Apple TV. You may find some devices only work with TV Everywhere apps if you’re using an updated version of the device, or one running a more recent version of the device’s operating system.
