    Last week, ATT announced that they were rolling out the next generation of DirecTV Now to Apple TV and the web. This morning, both of my android devices downloaded the updated android app. I can't wait for the Roku version to go from BETA to regular.

    The Cloud DVR is still listed as BETA so I guess we'll se a bit more development.

    "You can add a third stream for $5 per month."

    Consider that the "extra receiver fee". :)

    Except its not per receiver its per account. That's one of the benefits of the pricing structure of the OTT providers like PSVue, Hulu, YTTV, DTVNow...they don't charge any per receiver fees. It's a big benefit for folks like me who have lots of TV's in the house that are used only occasionally. I used to pay D almost as much as my entire current PSVue bill just in extra fees...:D

    It is still a fee one must pay to get a third stream. How much is a fourth stream?

    The good news is that it is not tied to a specific device. But it provides a reminder that OTT has limits.

    You are right. It’s one of the reasons I’m not a big fan of the DTVNow service, at least not in its current form. PSVue comes with 5 simultaneous streams and unlimited DVR storage (although it is limited to 28 days, an issue for some I’m sure) at no extra charge.

    Whenever they sign a streaming deal with WOOD's owner Nexstar and/or Nexstar signs a streaming deal with NBC.

    I updated my DirecTV Now apps on my Rokus the day the update was announced. I got the improved guide, the Cloud DVR and...

    Local channels from Kansas City, MO, instead of my Tulsa, OK locals! It's a good thing I have good reception with OTA antennas.

    I have the same problem. Had locals with old APP. With the update I had locals from Georgia. Then they disappeared and now I have locals from Seattle!! I live in South Florida.
