Directvnow accessibility

tvOS & Apple TV Apps

So for a multitude of reasons we're looking at cutting the cord and because of our internet provider who uses AT&T sim cards, and cell tours for our rural internet DirecTV now is our best option. Basicly we get a gig each mnth and direcTV now doesn't count that. My question is how accessible is it on the apple TV and sorry to ask but my Fire Stick. We have an Apple TV on one tv and The Fire Stick on the other. I remember the last time I tried it the guide didn't seem to be very accessible but I didn't try very hard. Thanks in advance for your help.

Granted it was last year and they may have improved it, but I found the interface to be awful. It was somewhat usable on FireTV, but not at all on iOS. I didn't try it on Apple TV. It was cool that you could channel surf as you could with standard cable, but that 's where the cool ended. They did have one of the better channel packages, one of only two streaming providers that had most of the channels we watch, but also at a slightly higher price. They are currently rebranding as AT&T TV Now, and hopefully the apps will improve. We use Hulu with Live TV.
