FAQ

DIRECTV Guides

1) How do I activate my DIRECTV account on a streaming device?

You can’t directly activate your DIRECTV app on a streaming device (Xbox, PlayStation) but you can use the app to access your DIRECTV DVR recordings.

2) Why does my streaming device say “Activate your DIRECTV account” or something similar?

You have not activated your DIRECTV account on the streaming device. You will need to add the DIRECTV app on that specific device. To avoid this, activate your DIRECTV account on a streaming device like a Roku first.

3) How is live TV streamed from my home receiver to remote devices?

DIRECTV sends your live TV signal over the internet to your devices. The DIRECTV app communicates with your home receiver using a technology called Residential Gateways (RG). You will need broadband internet service that meets the following technical specifications:

·          Minimum Download Speed of 5 Mbps for HD video streaming, or 1.5 Mbps for SD video streaming

·          Minimum Upload Speed of 1 Mbps for all DIRECTV services

·          A wireless router is strongly recommended for use with the app

(Optional) If your devices are not close to your home receiver, you can use an Ethernet cable to connect to internet service. You will need a cable modem and a router. The following diagrams illustrate how this works:
