I actually came across this post here on the forums (found it via a google search)

viewtopic.php?p=350733

So based on that post and my own problems, I believe this is not an Pixel 3 XL or phone issue, but rather an actual Android 10 issue. Android 10 has been out about 2 months now and is starting to push to other phones and devices. So hopefully the app can be updated to correct whatever is making it crash when attempting to watch a DRM channel.

Yes, it still crashes today on any DRM channels. It's an app issue (compatibility with the new OS) for sure. It was working fine before Android 10.

Android 4.4.2 is the minimum that will work. Did you re-lock the bootloader after going back to the stock ROM? DRM will not work if the device is in anything other than stock factory condition - unlocked bootloader or any third-party ROM will not pass the checks.

I did get this working ony tablet after going back to stock. I think I was just to anxious, and after all the stock stuff updated, google services, etc the hd home run app worked including drm.

So now hopefully things can be updated for Android 10. Its only matter of time before more and more phones and devices are updated.
