We have been hearing from DIRECTV NOW customers in the last few days that local stations have been added in several markets across the country. We have reached out to our contacts at AT&T headquarters in Dallas and we can now confirm that the following local affiliates have been added as of today:
- CBS-WGCL – Atlanta, GA
- CBS-WVLT – Knoxville, TN
- CBS-WHIO – Dayton, OH
- FOX-WRGT – Dayton, OH
- FOX-WVAH – Charleston-Huntington, WV
- FOX-WTTE – Columbus, OH; Zanesville, OH
- FOX-WLUK – Green Bay, WI
- ABC-WTVQ – Lexington, KY
- CBS-WKYT – Lexington, KY
- NBC-WLEX – Lexington, KY
The biggest benefactor of this recent surge of affiliate additions is Lexington Kentucky, aka “The Horse Capital of the World” and home to the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Prior to today’s additions, the Lexington market only had locals for CBS and FOX on Hulu Live and CBS on Playstation Vue.
