Spectrum TV with Prime, DRM channels wont play on Fire TV HD Homerun app

Post by ctem81 » Mon Jun 03, 2019 9:14 am

I have spectrum TV with cable card and a prime tuner. All channels, including DRM protected play fine on windows 10 native hd homerun app and IOS app.

On fire tv with HD homerun app all channels play fine except for anything DRM. Is this normal?

That is normal for fireTV... iOS should support drm content but there are limitations (being wireless, many may fail rtt requirement depending on environment, no screen mirroring/casting/airplay...)

DRM playback is not currently supported with FireTV devices.

Windows 10, iOS, and Android will play protected channels. FireTV isn't one we can support for protected channels.
