So, because DirecTV hasn't deigned to become an approved provider of ESPN streaming services (the Watch ESPN app, and ESPN3), there doesn't appear to be any way for DirecTV subscribers to watch the upcoming FIFA World Cup games anywhere other than home. Can't watch the games on the official ESPN app, can't use DirecTV 2 PC on anything other than a home network. DirecTV's own apps DO NOT include any ESPN or ABC programming. It appears we are totally shut out of being able to watch the tournament remotely. Or, am I wrong about this? Is there a workaround I haven't heard of? I would really like to be able to stream these games while I am at my office. I just spent over an hour on the phone with the "retention" department, and they could not find a solution. It appears DirecTV customers are out of luck. Frankly, I've had it with this crap. If they don't fix this in the next two weeks, I will be terminating my account after 18 years as a loyal and mostly satisfied DirecTV customer.
