It’s time to pop the champagne! DIRECTV NOW turned two… and boy have we grown.
More ways to watch
We brought you True Cloud DVR BETA so you can record 20 hours of live TV and watch, fast forward or rewind from wherever you are1. And if you forgot to hit record, we’ve got you covered with thousands of on-demand titles available after your shows have already aired.
We’ve also given you more control when it comes to your kids. Our new parental controls are device specific, making it easier for you to keep tabs on what your little ones are watching. Enjoy your favorite gritty crime shows without worrying about the kids tuning in from their bunk beds in the next room.
And if you’ve got a full house, you already have two simultaneous streams included… or you can even add a third for just $5 a month.
More from your app
Accessing our new app just got a whole lot easier, too. Not only did we roll out a new look by putting your most-loved programs front and center, but we also brought our app to select Samsung Smart TVs—joining the ranks of a growing list of supported devices including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, tablets, phones, and web browsers.
Our app isn’t the only one you have access to. Third-party authentication is now available, meaning you can use your DIRECTV NOW credentials to log into network apps like HBO GO®, WatchESPN, etc., giving you more ways to watch your must-see entertainment.
This year we celebrated the launch of our international packages, including Todo y Más which features over 50 live Spanish-language channels before topping the year off with our latest Vietnamese, Brazilian, and Korean packages. We’re proud to serve more communities across our diverse country and this is only the beginning.
And we’re not forgetting our local communities either. The number of available local channels grew by… a lot. Long gone are the days where you could only watch local networks at home—now you can enjoy those same local channels playing live in the ZIP code you’re actually in during your travels2.
Sports fans, we’ve got you covered: We expanded the number of Regional Sports Networks, which means more of you can cheer on your favorite local teams. But if you’re here for the big leagues, we’ve got something for you too! We welcomed the arrival of the NFL Network, available to all subscribers on the “Just Right” package and above.
And there you have it! While we’re celebrating our two-year milestone, we’re setting our sights on the year ahead packed with even more exciting features coming your way. Stay tuned.
