Last week I purchased a 4th gen Apple TV and have been spending the past week evaluating different options such as Hulu and Direct TV Now. I eliminated Sling as neither the iOS or TVOS apps were accessible. Here is my question: Is anyone using the Direct TV Now app on their iOS device and then simply using Airplay to broadcast the stream to their Apple TV? I really enjoy the vast content available on Direct TV Now, but I can't use the app developed for the TVOS platform. At the moment I have just been using Airplay from my iPhone and keeping my iPhone on the charger while watching TV.
Does anyone advise against this practice? I am connected to my home Wi-Fi, so data usage is not an issue. I would go 100% Hulu, but they are a missing a few channels that I enjoy. Any advice that you can provide a new TV user would be appreciated. I did watch the Podcasts that David Woodbridge published and they were very helpful getting me up and running.
Thank you in advance.
