Have you thought of using a Roku box ?

I use one to connect my TV to my newtork and stream A/V content. I have a NAS drive. There is a Plex app for roku; unsure about a Direct TV app.

Roku DAC leaves a lot to be desired, and would be a limitation if you want to stream high quality audio. I use a (former) TOTL Marantz AV receiver with a good DAC for audio streaming throughout my house.

You could pair a Roku box for video with a used Denon Heos 2 Preamp, or Blue Sound Node 2 for audio for less than $400. Both the Denon and Blue Sound will connect to a NAS and stream all of the popular services.
