    AT&T TV National Launch

    What branding is DirecTV? There’s absolutely nothing mentioning DirecTV on AT&T TV. The package names are the same and channel numbers, but Joe Six Pack doesn’t know that. Your average consumer wouldn’t get a hint of DirecTV out of it. Unless perhaps they’d had D* in the past or remembered...

    What will happen to Directv going forward

    Man, have you been under a rock? There are now ‘smart TVs’ with the FireOS, which ever Chinese outfit has licensed the ‘Toshiba’ brand name is making them now, along with Best Buy’s in-house ‘Insignia’ brand. I would expect more will follow. FireTV is Android based however.

    What will happen to Directv going forward

    I live in a county, 743 sq miles, 30,000, entire county is or will be covered. Approximately 75% as of now. And, nothing was automated regarding the installation, all manual labor, trucks, ATVs, even mules where the land is rough. It’s an exception to the rule for sure, but, it’s not ‘just’ in...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    I ordered it, so I have to send it back, haha You know AT&T, I thought perhaps I could just take it back to the store, not have to mess with sending everything back UPS. Sent from my iPad using SatelliteGuys

    AT&T TV National Launch

    I am glad it got some better for you. I think I’ll just stick with my DIRECTV for now, it works well and is reliable, and even with the AT&T TV, I’d have to swap back and forth all the time to do my Amazon Prime Video. Hope it works out for you. I have to go to day and ‘attempt’ to get all...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    It is AT&T not Google/AndroidTV. I have used Android TV on a Sony TV for about 3 years, and I have had both a second and third generation nVidia Shield. They are great, super fast, no lag, absolutely no problems. As a matter of fact, I tried an AirTV Mini, from Dish, it worked excellent as well...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    I tried it before I canceled DirecTV. You have 14 days in which you can cancel AT&T TV. I got it Tuesday and I am taking their sh!t back tomorrow to the store.

    AT&T TV National Launch

    This C71 was the absolute worst piece of sh!te I have ever used. I have Roku's, AppleTV's, Fire Cube, Fire Stick's, and even a nVidia Shield, I have used many different devices for streaming over the years, but this is the buggiest box I can ever recall using. I cannot imagine that this will go...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    The apps I installed just a couple, caused it to freeze up. Also, I tried to go into ‘settings’ a couple of times and the damn thing crashed from that. I got frustrated with it, unhooked it, boxed it back up, and reinstalled my HR54. This ‘osprey’ and his brother ‘osprey’ I got for another room...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    They really should make it clear that not ALL apps in the Google Play store can be installed. As far is it being competition, it really is not, you've got the AT&T TV service, so you're not going anywhere, their getting paid. They wouldn't have to 'advertise' it in the guide like they do with...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    I decided to 'try' AT&T TV, was going to plan to use it and have my Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, AcornTV, etc... without having to switch back to Roku or AppleTV. Long story short, I was going to replace my DIRECTV with it. I received the box, connected it, waited for it to boot and update...

    Rarely any new discussions here

    I can add, I would look at Orby to replace my DirecTV subscription I rarely watch (due to streaming) if they would add Fox News and Fox Business.

    Charlie thinks DISH and DIRECTV should merge.

    I often find CordCutters News to be quite sensational as well, with little real ‘news.’ Not long back they had ‘breaking news’ from 6 months ago about the Nexstar/Tribune merger and some sales of existing stations Nexstar had to sell to Tegna. It’s usually big hype with little real information...

    WB Affiliates on Ku-Band Satellite (1998)

    You do understand I am talking about you effecting NOW, 2020? correct?? No one but you cares about what happened in 1998, OK! And what difference does it make if they were scrambled then or not you didn’t know about it.

    I realize that you likely have some issues which might make it difficult for you to understand how your actions, regarding contacting programmers, will effect many other FTA users. I would ask that you please attempt to empathize and consider your actions contacting these people. When you do...
