For instance, let’s say you were recently in the middle of watching “Jurassic World” on Peacock, the DIRECTV STREAM Device will now take you back to Peacock with one tap, without leaving the DIRECTV STREAM app. At the outset, it works with apps including Paramount+, HBO Max, Disney+, discovery+, and Peacock – though Prime Video and Netflix are not compatible yet. The company says that support for additional apps will be coming soon.
In order to allow you to swiftly resume where you left off in external platforms like Paramount+ and HBO Max, DIRECTV STREAM has included a feature. The streamer has included a new third-party app carousel to its most recent update for users of the DIRECTV STREAM Android TV device (also known as the “DIRECTV STREAM Device”), which will display the most recent material that users were watching in OTT streaming apps.
To get started, all you have to do is download a third-party app from Google Play on the DIRECTV STREAM Device, and if it’s supported, it will now show up in the “My Apps: Continue Watching” carousel.New and existing DIRECTV STREAM subscribers can add a DIRECTV STREAM Device for $120 (or $5 per month for 24 months). The streamer also offers a certified restored version for $49.99. For a limited time, new DIRECTV STREAM subscribers can get $20 off their first two months, after a five-day free trial.
