Incorrect. It is just that DirecTV is most likely not seeing enough user metrics for use. I would not be surprised if the Pandora app leaves, along with DLNA connectivity.
Streaming devices are cheap these days. I have a Smart TV in one bedroom, another has a Roku Stick and the front room has a Amazon Fire TV box & Blu-Ray player with streaming capabilities.
The problem is that DirecTV is not able to utilize the Miracast features that streaming devices are capable of doing.
YouTube will keep working until they (YouTube) shuts the API down. This is being done in phases, but most likely at the end of may, all devices will stop working. They first thing you will see disappearing for the YouTube in DirecTV are the YT searches.I don't know why it isn't working for you, but Youtube is working on all my devices, including my HR44.
Yup, been there for a year or so.There was a YouTube app on the Directv receivers? lol.....why?
To appease the masses and stay competitive. Nowadays it seems as folks are willing to give up functionality over comfort. I never liked the YouTube app on DIRECTV®, first typing was a chore, is a treat to type with a physical keyboard. PCs, Macs, Smartphones, tablets produce results much faster and the UI is just that much better.There was a YouTube app on the Directv receivers? lol.....why?
