Trying to use Directv and HBO GO on ubuntu on 16.04 LTS

I'm trying to use Directv and HBO Go on my new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but both sites are not letting me watch shows. What can I do to watch these shows. What do I need to download? Someone help.

What browser are you using? I do know that Google Chrome, not Chromium, is the only browser so far to work with Netfix.

This link at DirectTV shows Windows and/or Mac OSX as supported OS but not Linux.

HBO Go has these possibilities.
