DIRECTV NOW Adds a Slew of Local Channels!

Locals added for Lexington, Atlanta, Knoxville, Dayton, Green Bay, Columbus OH, and Charleston WV as the service continues to bolster its national coverage.

DIRECTV NOW’s Best Deal Finally Revealed

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.

As we have recently reported, AT&T has been aggressively adding local network affiliates all across the country in an effort to bolster the service, particularly for those users who are considering migrating from traditional cable and satellite Pay TV packages.

If you want to stay abreast of local channels as they are added to streaming services, be sure bookmark our constantly updated spreadsheet of live locals for all streaming providers and click the red icon at the bottom right of the screen to be notified when updates occur.

  • Congratulations to Lexington Kentucky on the recent additions of local channels. It will be interesting to see if DIRECTV NOW sees a surge of subscriptions from this market in the coming days.

    This is good news! Still waiting on Midland / Odessa TX area. I feel like DirecTV Now has a big push to get all if not most of the locals by the new year or before they roll out their newer version of the app. Just wish they would hurry up with my area.
