Here’s the list of local channels you can live stream on DIRECTV

Are you one of the lucky few? There aren’t a lot of local stations that can be live streamed, but if you’re in a major city where the network affiliate is owned by the network, chances are good that you’ll be able to watch live TV through the DIRECTV app for your smartphone or tablet!

Here’s the latest list, as of April 2016, of channels that live stream through the app:

FOX:

  • New York
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Dallas Ft Worth
  • Philadelphia
  • Washington, DC
  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Houston
  • Phoenix
  • Detroit
  • Charlotte
  • Orlando
  • Tampa
  • Gainesville
  • Minneapolis
  • Austin

ABC

  • New York
  • Los Angeles
  • San Francisco
  • Philadelphia
  • Chicago
  • Raleigh-Durham
  • Houston
  • Fresno

NBC

  • New York
  • Los Angeles

If you’re out of your local market, you won’t be able to live stream unless the market you’re in also has live streaming of local channels.
