DIRECTV NOW is NOT Supporting Android TV




, ,

Update: The Google Play Store is no longer letting us install DIRECTV NOW on our Android TV player. Sadly this looks like it was a glitch on the Google Play side. DIRECTV NOW did just pull their Fire TV Beta from the Fire TV app store. You can learn more HERE.

Earlier today we reported that the DIRECTV NOW android app was showing up on Android TV devices. That looks like it was likely a glitch and is no longer supported. The app that installed was very similar to the tablet version with several features not working with the remote. The good news is Android Tablets, and Phones now have access to an updated version with DVR support.

Here is the new DIRECTV NOW Android description:

Sorry for any confusion when we tested it the download worked but it was quickly pulled and clearly seems to have been a mistake. This was likely caused by the new Android app rolling out to phones and tablets.
