All the locals on DIRECTV NOW, Summer 18 Edition

Live streaming just keeps looking better and better. When you look at all the local channels available as part of your DIRECTV NOW package, it’s pretty impressive. A lot of people believed that it was going to be impossible for either AT&T or DISH to provide a robust set of local channels for people. Those people were wrong. Nearly every subscriber now has access to at least two local channels with many markets having up to six.

Let’s take a look

Our friends over at CordCutters News did the heavy lifting and research to compile the list, and I’m happy to show it here as well. It’s organized alphabetically by the name of the major city being served.

What if that’s not enough local channels for you?

The good news here is that by adding a TV antenna you can probably get dozens more free channels. Over 90% of Americans are within range of local TV channels and getting them is easy.

Just put up a TV antenna! You know, antenna TV never went away, and now it’s better than ever. You’ll get channels you never expected and once you put up the antenna you’ll never pay another dime.

Best of all you don’t need to do the research. All you need to know is this one link. You can get a free, no obligation analysis of your antenna needs. Our techs will review everything about your area and recommend the best choice for you to be able to get as many local channels as possible.

BREAKING: One last thing

This chart was revised at the last minute thanks to Jake Buckler, who brought up that Nexstar-owned locals are now on DIRECTV NOW. Look for his full report tomorrow.
