signed up a month ago, finally selected today. Maybe they are speeding it up https://www.cordcuttersnews.com/d...bscribers/

I think this is the Osprey manual with 4K HDR support. https://fccid.io/NKR-ATTC71KW/Use...al-3607335
Android TV unit features 2GB RAM, 8GB storage and is powered by a Broadcom BRCM7271 SoC. The unit supports both 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi, as well as Dolby Audio, VP9, HDR10, and seemingly 4K. Bluetooth 4.1 is also on board, as is a HDMI, a USB, an Ethernet, and an optical port. The package also does include an IR (voice-enabled) remote control with NUMBER PAD

Thanks for the heads up, was looking for a way to sign up a month ago when I first heard of this. Just signed up, we'll see if I get to test!

I've heard not-so-great reviews on this box. Besides, I don't want yet another redundant device and an extra remote on top of my Apple TV 4K. Just my opinion. Repped.
I never did get that ATV deal, prefer android. I was the OP in the original deal and happily grandfathered in GO BIG w/HBO. Getting pretty good feedback over at Reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/DirecTVNow/

I like DTV Now, I wasn't complaining about their service.. I also was grandfathered into the GO BIG package (they raised from $35 to $40 for everyone recently, though), but what I'm complaining about is the performance of this box in specific.

i agree. i have firebox so not sure i want to give up anything even if it is better streaming (not having a problem now). i will evaluate it if chosen but most likely will stay with fire box. I have DirectTV Now with HBO and only pay $17 per month. if i have to switch to higher cost then definitely will stay with what i have.

Are the numbers actually tied to a channel #?

I think this thread has more current links but the OP link is fine here too. Beta testers are supposed to be on the downlow but quite a few comments https://www.reddit.com/r/DirecTVN...ail_today/

Some say email notice with another with tracking going to spam folder. Too bad they didn't get an android app out for my Shield or xbox yet.

If they start offering 4k streams to rival their DTV service, I wouldn't miss the free apple tv deals. 4K live tv is something I have wanted for ages. Even on-demand stuff is sorely lacking still.

Is it worth signing up for if you've subscribed in the past and horrified with how it lags during hours when people actually watch TV? And is this basically a no streaming device (e.g. Apple TV) required kind of thing and you just get an ATT set-top box instead?
