Is there a list of apps that support DirecTV now signin? I have found that only the ABC app supports the signin. The Food Network and Discovery Go do not support signin for DirecTV Now at the moment.

I wasn't able to sign in to the SyFy Now app on my Apple TV. It shows DIRECT TV in the list of providers but no DIRECTTV NOW. I tried the DIRECT TV sign in and also the "other providers" and it didn't work.

Oddly, the SyFy Now app did work on my iPad.

I normally do not watch SyFy Now but I tried to test the login and got a message on the screen that there was a problem with the App and needed to be updated. I deleted it and re-installed and still did not work. Maybe a temporary problem.

Regarding logins. DIRECTV and DIRECTV Now are 2 separate logins. DIRECTV Now is under "other providers" at this time when it is available. Single Sign On only support DIRECTV and NOT DIRECTV Now.

On my iPhone Directtv Now is the spelling under "other providers" and works with my DIRECTV Now Credentials.

I downloaded the app on my phone and i was able to log in fine, DIRECTVNOW is listed under other providers. I will try to do the same using the Apple TV ,later tonight and will update/

Yes, as I said the Syfy Now app worked on my iPad. It also works on my iPhone.
It does *not* work on the AppleTV app (no DIRECTV NOW option under Other Providers).

(To clarify, I did not try using SSO on the AppleTV, the separate login didn't even work on the app.)

I was able to login on the Apple TV. As you know when you select Other Providers (on the ATV) you then get a code and URL that you have to use on your Computer Browser (or iPhone/iPad). The problem I had is that Directv Now was OUT OF ORDER. It was not next to Directv that it normally is. I almost gave up. But scrolled down about another 10 items and found it.

I tried myself and i agree with @d21mike DIRECTVnow was not next to DIRECTV like other apps- it's a few selections down - but it definitely works

If you are having trouble signing into an NBC/Universal app (Syfy) log into another like USA. Then go back to the app you had trouble with and get to the Activation Code page. Your sign on will sync automatically after a few seconds. Only need to log into on app and the rest will follow.
