There once was a time when I was a DirecTV subscriber and I was very happy with the service. Well times changed, I sold that townhouse and bought a new home and with that came my change to Xfinity. I did this not because of an issue with DirecTV but more because I had no other good internet options (and I only wanted to pay one company) but more because I was in love with the Xfinity Voice Remote. Well recently my Xfinity experience changed when I got an Amazon Fire TV Cube and I started using Alexa to control my cable box. Well last week DirecTV got the same kind of love from the Amazon Fire TV Cube and with my contract with Xfinity soon ending I am thinking about making the jump back to DirecTV.
Any DirecTV subscribers out there controlling their set top boxes with Alexa via a Fire TV Cube? Let me know in the comments below.
