- Roku 2 (4210x)

DIRECTV NOW did say this is subject to change. Some Roku players may be added or removed from this list.
The good news is we did get to go hands-on with the DIRECTV NOW beta Roku Channel. You can find our full look at the DIRECTV NOW beta running on Roku here:
According to the emails going out, the DVR will come later. “The True Cloud DVR is not available for Roku devices yet. We’ll let you know when it’s ready for Roku device testing. In the meantime…” The email goes on to say “…You can stream live channels and on-demand content. You can set recordings from your Roku device, but at this time you can’t view your playlist or playback any recordings on it.”
