DirecTV Now, AT&T's online TV service, is now integrated with the TV app on Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad, making it easier to discover the shows, movies, sports, and news available through the service. You'll be able to find live sports from your favorite teams as well as on-demand shows and movies in the Watch Now tab and Up Next section of the TV app.
From AT&T (opens in new tab):
As of this update, DirecTV Now also supports universal search on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. This means that if a movie or TV show is available on DirecTV Now, you'll see an option for playing it on the service when you search for it using Spotlight search or Siri. Siri support also allows you to ask to jump directly to a particular channel inside DirecTV Now, so you can say, for instance, "Hey Siri, tune into USA," and Siri will open DirecTV Now and head to USA.
Finally, DirecTV Now supports the Single Sign-On feature on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. This lets you sign in with your DirecTV Now credentials once in the settings of your device, then just click allow in a supported app whenever the app asks to use your DirecTV Now login. You won't need to sign into your account in every app you might want to use with it.
These updates are available now in the latest version of the DirecTV Now app, which can be found in the App Store (opens in new tab) on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.
