Soon, DirecTV Now Will Only Work in Google Chrome on Desktop

When DirecTV Now launched, its content was streamable across a variety of internet browsers for those who like to kick back and relax in front of their desktop. However, starting this July, the service will formally only support Google Chrome, therefore making Google’s desktop browser the only available option to those interested in using their subscription on their PC or Mac.


The news is arriving as a popup that displays when one logs into his/her DirecTV Now account on a browser other than Google Chrome. It’s unclear why DirecTV is dropping browsers like Microsoft Edge and Safari, but the company says DirecTV Now will run more smoothly via Chrome so there’s that.

Still, not everyone uses Google Chrome and would rather stick with their main browser. Regardless, this news just adds to the laundry list of services that exclusively run on Google’s desktop browser.

Users will have until the end of June to jump over to Google Chrome. Otherwise, you’ll be disappointed when you click open Edge or Safari to begin binge-watching.
