AT&T Rolls Out a DIRECTV NOW Update to Fix Apple TV Audio Issues




, , ,

Yesterday, AT&T rolled an update for DIRECTV NOW on the Apple TV to fix several known audio issues. One of the main issues that was fixed was overlapping audio, and some readers have reported better audio sync with what is happening on-screen.

Sadly, this did not fix the DIRECTV NOW DVR issue that results in some shows not being recorded.

DIRECTV NOW also reports that they have recently added more support for accessibility standards. These standards help people with hearing or visual disabilities.

Here are the full release notes from this week’s DIRECTV NOW update on the Apple TV:
