I really like my Direct TV Now. I am in the market for another new smart TV. However, if this app doesn't get added, I'll be getting something other than an LG, cause I'm not buying another Apple TV device or other 3rd party device to go with the new TV. About to lose a loyal customer. Even my new washer and dryer are LG.

The problem is that LG do not (in general) create the apps for webOS, in the same way that Google and Apple do not write all the apps on their respective platforms.  Contacting LG via the their official feedback page will help show them the desire for a DIRECTV NOW app.  But the more important thing to do is contact DIRECTV NOW themselves.

It should not be too hard for DIRECTV NOW to get onboard with a LG webOS app as they where writing for it back in 2010, although how well they did remains unclear:

Yes I just received my 65'E8 PUA OLED tv for my great room (beautiful picture quality), but currently I have DirecTV Now app/service  on my office tv and guest room tv's via Roku. To enhance the customer experience the DirecTV Now app is a must have and the partnership with LG and AT& T should make this a top priority . The decision makers that may read this is there an ETA on this? Can new and current LG customers expect to see something in Q1 or Q2 of 2019?

I have WebOS 3.0 on my TV and need an ugly ROKU device and a second remote to control DirectTV Now.  Makes me want to go to Sling Because my WebOS already has that app built in... but i lose local channels!

LG, please fix!  Shoot, hire me and i'll help write the code.

 

Roku Ultra is vastly preferable to the inferior hardware, limited apps, inadequate onboard memory and hideous interface many if not most wifi-enabled Smart TVs, feature.

      I am on Webos 4.40.18 and the YouTube app got totally messed up after the last update. Even if it's installed, when trying to open in the content store I get a message saying that it's not available for the region of the TV. When opening the app, the entire content gets stacked up in one single tile. Nice testing before releasing an app to Production. Is there any direct way to send this bugs to the developers? Probably it will take days or weeks to fix. Keep doing this great job...

      Youtube App is showing the list of videos but some times not opening the video and the screen is blank. I tried reinstalling the app and it worked for some time and faced the same issue. I also tried clearing the cache as well, still the issue persists. Can any one had the solution for it?

      I shifted to India from UAE with my 55SM9000PVA LG TV. Since it is a TV for the middle east, I can not change the region to India. Therefore I can not log in to my LG account and have apps from the LG content store of India. Ok, so I thought I should be able to use my account in UAE and use the apps which I used in UAE. Now these apps say the IP address is not from the region, so can't run those apps. So I am stuck up with an expensive smart TV without smartness. No service center, neither LG India have any answers to it. I hate using set top boxes please help.

      JioCinema has a good collection of movies and shows , it would be cool if we could atleast side load the app or it would be officially released .
