DIRECTV App and Local Channels

I’m on vacation in Hawaii and can’t access my local channels for Dallas from the directv app. Works fine when I’m in Dallas. I called directv and their answer was that I can’t access local channels when I’m out of town. I don’t believe that as the whole point of the app is to be able to access your programming from anywhere (except maybe out of country). 


Help. Thanks

That's true. They can't deliver your local channels when you're out-of-home area.
