Note (July 2, 2018): DirecTV NOW recently made some changes to their service, after which Location Services needs to be Enabled on iOS devices and Apple TV. The service has shifted back and forth about this setting a couple of times, so we’re hoping they will do that again. Having said that, we recommend Sling TV over DirecTV NOW if you need an alternative service for live TV streaming.
