Get the Most Out of Your Sports With DIRECTV STREAM’s Latest Tools

Get the Most Out of Your Sports With DIRECTV STREAM’s Latest Tools

Whatever you’re into, football, baseball, racing (both car and horse!), soccer, boxing, hockey or even water polo, there’s tons of sports content available every day, all year long. It’s not really a question about if there’s something to watch, it’s more about what to watch (and when).

When you have access to all the sports you can imagine (especially with a streaming service), it can be a touch overwhelming. How do you wade through it all and find the teams, the scores and the games that you care about?

DIRECTV STREAM customers have exclusive access to a few new features to make watching sports even more enjoyable (and digestible). With team recordings, auto extensions and live scores, sports just got better.  Read on to discover how these handy tools work.

Team Recordings

When you’re a fan, it’s all about your team, and nothing else will do. Make sure you never miss a single game with Team Recordings, where you’ll ensure each one of your favorite team’s broadcast games are recorded with one click.

How To Access Team Recordings:

Use the search functionality or guide to find your team’s next game.

Select Record Options

Then Team Recordings

That’s it. All of your team games will be recorded.

Repeat for all of your favorite teams.

Auto Extensions

You ever recorded your favorite game to watch later only to discover that the game went to extra innings or overtime and you didn’t record the ending? Nothing is more frustrating. With DIRECTV STREAM’s new Auto-Extend functionality, you’ll never miss a second of your game, even when the game’s end time changes unexpectedly. Phew. Now that’s a relief.

How To Access Auto Extend:

You don’t have to do anything; this feature automatically applies to your recorded games.

Game Tile / Live Scores

Browsing for the next game to watch just got more informative. With Team vs. Team Game Tiles, you’ll have no problem finding the game you’re looking for, while also seeing live game scores updated in real time. Of course, if you’d rather not see scores (especially when you’re coming back to a recorded game later), you can turn off this functionality as well.

How To Access Scores:

You’ll have to turn live scores on manually. This is possible both through a prompt when you turn on your device or through the settings menu.  

Navigate to Settings

Select Preferences

Toggle “Show Game Scores” on or off based on your preference.

Now, sit back, kick your feet up and get into the game.
