Google is your friend. :) Basically, you need another android device that can access Google Play. I use my Toshiba tablet, but an Android phone would work.

OK, how do you "sideload it from Google Play"?

The DirecTV App in the Amazon AppStore will not have Directv Everywhere on it. You have to sideload it from Google Play. I have it on my 1st gen Fire, and keep meaning to put it on my KFHD. That being said, I am not sure how it will work on the HD, but doesn't hurt to try.

I currently have the 7" and the 8.9. I don't see the directv app in the amazon store with either one of them.

We use the app for remote scheduling of the DVR's as well as their streaming content.

I know they have an app, I have it on two other android tablets.

Not on the 8.9. Maybe that makes a difference.

It shows compatible for both my 1st generation Fire and my Fire HD 7".

It won't work on the HD.

Honestly, I wasn't too impressed with the DirecTV app anyway. Too much clutter. I had it on my phone. Just sayin'.

You need to get it from the Amazon Android Store. Use the apps tab on your Fire, then go to Store, and search for it.

How do I load the DirecTV app on my fire? On my other tablets it is right in the play store as soon as I start searching for it.

I can't find it anywhere from my Kindle FireHD.
