DirecTV is a satellite service provider that broadcasts all over the United States of America. It is also a subsidiary of AT&T and deals with digital television and audio. 

In order to enjoy the service with uninterrupted entertainment, you need to have an account to access the portal. You can also manage and customize your online TV programs with the help of your DirecTV account.

We are here to provide some detailed information on how to create and log into your DirecTV account. We will also cover the login problems that you might come across while accessing your profile.

How to Log into DirecTV?

In order to watch your favorite programs, you need to create an account, choose a subscription and then log into DirecTV. 

Directv Subscription

Process of Subscription

To subscribe to DirecTV and watch your favorite programs, you need to follow the steps that are given below. 

  • Open your web browser and go to the official site of DirecTV. If you have not created your account yet, then click on the “Create Account” tab. 
  • We hope that you have your Debit or Credit card with you while subscribing to DirecTV. Now you will see a blank box where you need to put your card number. 
  • After writing the four digits, click on the “Use your account number” radio button. Now put your phone number in the given place. 
  • Besides the text box for the phone number, you will find another box where you have to write the last four digits of your card. 
  • After that, write your last name in the “Enter your last name” field and click on the “Continue” button. 

As the subscription process is now over, you may proceed with the customization section after creating an account. It is given in the section below. 

Create an Account and Login

In order to create the account, you need to go through these points very carefully. After creating the account, only then you will be able to log in and watch DirectTV. 

  • For creating an account, you can visit the official page for DirecTV. Enter your active email id and create a strong password. 
  • You have to type your password one more time to confirm it. After that, set a security question and write the answer. 
  • Now you need to put a tick mark in the checkbox beside “Send me updates on DIRECTV products and services”. 
  • Click on “Create Account” and wait for a few seconds. We hope you have successfully created your account.  

Now go back to the home page and put your email id and password to log in to your DirecTV Now account. When you are unable to log-in, then there might be some problem. We will look at them in the next section given below. 

Note: We advise you to create a password that has uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers along with special characters. This will ensure good security of your account. 

Also, while paying the subscription money, make sure that you have a good and stable Internet connection.

How to Fix DirecTV Login Failure?

Sometimes, you might not be able to log in to your account. It happens due to wrongly entering your email address and password. Also, you might not able to reset your password for DirecTV login with the wrong email id. 

As maximum users use Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer to surf, we will discuss how to manage your id and password with the help of these web browsers. 

Hopefully, this will help you to remember the credentials easily and you will be able to log in to your DirecTV account with ease.

Google Chrome

When you are using Google Chome, just click on the three vertical dots that are present at the top-right corner. Then click on “Settings”. 

After that, select the “Show Advanced Settings” and access the “Passwords and forms” section. Now click on the “Manage passwords”. Here, you will see the names of the websites in which you have created accounts. 

Now, find the DirecTV web address and you will be able to see your email id and password there.

Internet Explorer

Open Internet Explorer and you will find a gear shape icon, which is also present at the top right corner. Click on it to open the “Internet Options”. 

After the dialog box opens, select the “Content” tab and click on the “Settings” present in the AutoComplete section. The AutoComplete Settings dialog box will open, so scroll down to find “Manage Passwords” and click on it. 

To manage your credentials section, you have to choose the “Web Credentials”. Then you will be able to see the DirecTV website under “Web Passwords”. Click on the downward arrow on the right and you will get all the details. 


When you are using an iPhone or iOS, Safari is your default browser. So, go to the Settings and open the Safari browser. 

Now select the “Passwords” option in the GENERAL section and you will find the website of DirecTV with your email id written just beside it. Then select the arrow facing right to get the details. 

Hopefully, this will help you to get your email id and password without accessing the DirecTV website. You will get your DirecTV account number at the receipt of the monthly bill of your subscription. 

We also advise you to keep the account number safe for future preferences and customizing DirecTV login details.
