How to Install DirecTV on FireStick (November 2021)


This is a step-by-step guide on how to install DirecTV on FireStick, Fire TV, and Fire TV Cube.

DirecTV is a satellite broadcasting service that streams over 250 Live channels that happens to bring you Live Sports, Latest Movies, and so much more.

It comes into 3 different pricing plans i.e. Entertainment Package, Choice Package, and Ultimate Package that I will be discussing in this guide as well.

We have discussed two methods to install DirecTV. The first method is through the Downloader app method while the second method involves Amazon Store.

Since DirecTV is not available outside the US, you will need a VPN and connect to the US server to access its content. Surfshark VPN is our recommended choice. Get Surfshark for $2.21/mo (Black Friday Deal).

There are two ways you can get DirecTV on your FireStick device. These are:

  • Install DirecTV through Downloader App

The first method is the recommended one if you’re outside of the United States because you won’t find DirecTV on the Amazon store.

In both cases, you need to install and use Surfshark VPN on FireStick before you can stream content on DirecTV.

  1. I currently pay 150 a month for internet and direct tv (ridiculous). I have been hearing about the fire stick, but don’t know anyone who can tell me a lot about it. I am hooked on the discovery channel, history channel, and animal planet among others. Can I get these 3 channels without paying extra for them? Just trying to find something cheaper. If I have to pay for direct tv thru the fire stick to see these channels I don’t see how I would be better off.

  2. Installed Directtv app via downloader. The firestick controller will not work with the app?? any ideas
