DIRECTV NOW Has 3 Hour Outage

After months of no reported issues, DIRECTV NOW faced a nationwide outage last night of just over 3 hours. The cause of the outage has not been revealed, but it seems to coincide with an service-wide migration to use AT&T ID to log-in to the service.

Over the past month, DIRECTV NOW has been moving subscribers to an AT&T ID from a seperate DIRECTV NOW log-in. Up until yesterday you could use either your DIRECTV NOW or AT&T login, but today users are exclusively required to use their AT&T credentials.

Almost every streaming service has faced some sort of downtime in the last 6 months. During periods of extended downtime, we suggest subscribers to use their streaming service credentials to log-in to TV Everywhere apps.
