Who here has DirecTV Now? I have questions.

4k?

Compression versus Cable, DirecTV and OTA?

DVR?

Pros?

Cons?

DIRECTV NOW is a streaming service from AT&T/DirecTV. It doesn't use a satellite dish.

Chris is asking folks that have it how they like it.

https://www.directvnow.com/ does not use a satellite dish. DirecTV uses a satellite dish. Chris is not interested in folks telling him how they like their satellite service.

Looking for a clean ZX12R








I have DirecTvNow. It's ok...a of a lot cheaper than sudden link cable or satellite is.

DVR is still in Beta, only 10 hours, and half the time it pops an error when I try to watch something recorded.

It's kind of annoying that every time you go into the Guide and back to the same channel you were just on, you have to wait for it to load, I'm used to it by now.
