Question Is there a DirecTV viewer?

DirecTV has a new on-line service. They are telling me I need their viewer to view on-line shows. They only have PC and Mac versions. Is there a Linux version?

No longer needed. DirecTV solved the problem.

Was there a solution to this? I'm running 14.04 and trying to download the Player with the default browser (Firefox) that was packaged with the install. I am a new user, this is my first post and I'm trying to get this figured out so I can spend Sundays in the mancave where I don't have a box hooked up. Been running it off my old computer that Windows was crashing on so I reloaded it with 14.04. Thanks for any and all help!
