Is DIRECTV Now Available On The Kindle?

Q, I’ve been thinking about getting DIRECTV Now and putting it on my Kindle Fire HD 10 tablet, which has really nice graphics. But I was wondering first whether I can get DIRECTV Now on the Kindle. Can I? — Eddie, Butte, Montana. 

Eddie, for those not familiar with DIRECTV Now, it’s a live streaming service that offers dozens of channels in a variety of packages starting at $40 a month. Owned by AT&T, DIRECTV Now has roughly 1.6 million subscribers.

But, unfortunately, none of those subscribers watch DIRECTV Now on their Kindle Fire HD 10s, nor any other Kindle for that matter. AT&T has not made the live streaming service available on the Amazon-branded tablets.

So where can you find DIRECTV Now?

According to the streamer’s web site, it’s now available on select Roku devices and Roku-fueled TVs from TCL and Insignia; the Apple TV (4th and 5th generations); the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV stick (2nd generation or higher); the Amazon Fire TV Cube; the ; Google Chromecast and TVs that have Chromecast built-in; select Samsung Smart TVs; iPhone with iOS 10+; iPod Touch iOS 10+; Android phones and tablets 5.0 or higher; and the Safari 10+ and Chrome 58+ browsers.

Eddie, hope that helps. Happy viewing!
