One year ago we set out to bring you the best live TV streaming experience available, rounding out our overall video offering. And it’s been an amazing journey. We love that you love live TV... because we do too! Your passion for streaming makes us feel #blessed and we want to continue delivering entertainment without limits. Limits are boring...

Getting DIRECTV NOW in your hands and on your big screen from no matter where you live should be easy, so we keep collaborating with the biggest names in the business to support more amazing streaming devices and get you some of them for FREE. We’re pretty sure you’re into those deals since more than 200,000 people jumped on the streaming train during our first month and thousands more sign up each week.

We’ve been working hard to get more local channels to more people nearly every month so you can hear your morning traffic reports from the same reliable, local guy your parents loved. Right now, over 80% of U.S. households have access to at least one of their local networks. And we’re not finished.

And since we launched, we’ve offered some pretty sweet deals on streaming devices so you can enjoy your entertainment on DIRECTV NOW from almost anywhere. We’ve got you covered regardless if you’re checking out your favorite shows on DIRECTV NOW from your couch with the Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick or Roku, or streaming straight from your mobile device.

Our family keeps growing. A lot. This year, ONE MILLION people said they were tired of annual contracts, hardware fees, credit checks and installers only “available” between 1 – 4 p.m. on a Saturday. One million of you wanted something different. And we delivered.

Turning one is kind of a big deal, but hitting one million streamers is a much bigger deal. So, we’re gonna party… And then get back to work. The new year is around the corner and we’re bringing our stream-ers  even more exciting features next year:

  • A DVR in the cloud to record your shows and access virtually anywhere
  • 4K Ultra High Definition (UHD) quality video
  • Capacity for more than 35,000 titles on demand
  • Individual profiles
  • Adding an additional concurrent stream
  • More……surprises!

2018 is going to be epic.
