These additions bring its total to over 300, establishing it the clear leader in local channel access through its streaming service which just launched spring 2017.
DIRECTV NOW, AT&T’s live streaming service, which launched almost a year ago has also been aggressively closing deals with local network affiliates and by our count now has over 190 live locals on its service.
Rival services Youtube TV, Playstation Vue and Sling TV have all been steadily adding local channels to their services, but at a slower pace than Hulu and DIRECTV NOW.
According to our latest numbers, Playstation Vue is close on the heels of DIRECTV NOW and to date has 182 local channels on its service. YouTube.TV, whose strategy is largely based on local channel access, has 109 in its column.
