does Xbox One support Direct TV?

  • Level   1

Does Xbox One support Direct TV? When i look at some apps (Fox for example) Direct TV is not a supported provider. Before i add another TV box for my office, does
the Xbox One support live TV for Direct TV subscribers? Thanks.

    I guess this is something that DirecTV needs to allow. I tried to use the fox app and was disappointed that DirecTV customers were not supported... and that I had gone through the hassle of trying to set it up before finding out it required provider details from a supported TV servicve provider :(

    Hi folks!

    DirecTV is supported to and it does work. Some issues have come up where the STB (Set Top Box aka cable box) does not respond to incoming channel requests, this is because many sat boxes are native RF, and we use IR to control the boxes. Have no fear, because there is a setting within those STB's that allow you to change to IR instead of RF. However, I would appreciate if you post your questions about device specific info, on the device specific forum found here: forums.xbox.com/.../default.aspx. I hope this helps! Enjoy the rest of your holidays and please post in the specific area of the forums regarding the specific hardware. :)

    Unfortunately, Voodoo, that's not something we can change here. Please get in touch with your provider and let them know you'd like to see support for those apps.

    LOL got it! No app at this time. Stay tuned for future updates. The Xbox One is an ever evolving eco-system, the console you see today will not be the console you see in 6 months, a year down the line. I have noted your request (as I dig the idea as-well). Please enjoy the rest of the Xbox One system, Game On!
