Steps I took to order this for my use in Canada
1. I have an entropay.com account (free U.S. Virtual Visa Credit Card that you can top up with your Canadian Credit Card - 4.95% top up fee). Topped it up $105 USD (Total cost is $110.20 USD that I charged to my Canadian Credit Card). EDIT: See Other Options below...
2. I have a U.S. forwarding address in the state of Delaware with mymallbox.com (free account, you get a $5 credit for sign up if you use someone's referral ). You just pay them when your item arrives to have them ship it to Canada. Reasonable shipping rates.
3. Enabled my SmartDnsProxy.com Smart DNS. Went through the Directvnow sign up process. Selected the Apple TV 4K offer. Inputted my Entropay Visa Card info and used the mymallbox provided address as Billing/Shipping address
EDIT: Other options instead of using Entropay that may work with your existing Canadian Credit Card

https://tools.usps.com/go/ZipLookupActi ... fresh=true Only put in the numbers of your postal code then 01 and the end. You will see what state and city your in, put that info when signing up with direct tv now. For address put 123 happy lane or whatever.

Example: If your Canadian Postal code is K7Z 9B8, then you would head over to the USPS zip code site to get the City and State that the numbers in your zip code followed by 00 belong too:
You would try 79800 at the USPS website. If it gives you an error, you would then try 79801. If that gives you an error, then you'd try 79802..and so on and so forth...
Once the USPS website finally provides you a valid City/State that the zip code corresponds too, then you would head over to directv now to place your order. The Billing Address would need to be the City/State/Zipcode that you found from the USPS website (you can use any street address you want). The Shipping Address would be the mymallbox provided address.

The zip code trick for a friend of mine, placed him on Santa Monica, CA 90401! On DIRECTV billing he put like that and was charged an extra $10.50 for taxes! I've changed just the state to KY (Kentucky) and he was not charged and the payment accepted! That means that as long the zip code trick gives you a valid 5 digits, you can chose an exempt state and avoid the extra $10.50
Suggested, that you find an alternate location in the US to have your ATV shipped too:
1. Tell mymallbox to ship it to me here in Ottawa using USPS (This should cost $12.18 USD)
Assuming you follow the BeFrugal method and purchase using the Canadian Credit card trick along with mailing to mymallbox and using a 0% Foreign Exchange Fee 1% Cashback credit card like the Amazon rewards Visa (using today's VISA USD -> CAD exchange rate):
$105 USD - Directv Now Service
$12.18 USD - Mymallbox cheapest shipping to Canada
-$5.00 USD - Mymallbox Referral Credit
= $112.18 USD
= $140.67 CAD is what would appear on an Amazon Visa credit card statement.
- $1.41 - Amazon Visa Rewards Credit (1%)
- $39.14 - Befrugal Credit ($32 USD with 2.5% conversion fee)
-$40.55 CAD total in Credits
APPROXIMATE TOTAL (with credits, taxes, and shipping fees included):
COMPARISON TO VISITING AN APPLE STORE IN ONTARIO
Expect to receive the following tracking information a couple of business days after your online order:
FedEx - 2 Day shipping
Once it arrives mymallbox...even with the cheapest USPS (non-tracking) option selected, you will still receive tracking information from Globegistics that can be used to track its progress to Canada (once it arrives Canada, you should be able to continue to get accurate tracking using the tracking number on canadapost).
Delivery to my local Canadapost came in exactly 6 business days after mymallbox shipped it.
