They are hiding behind the usual excuses for not providing local channels. I live just outside Portland OR and they are not providing local coverage here either.

 

As much as there are good aspects to this service I'm finding way too may bullsh*t technicalities where they aren't living up to the hype.

 

One great exapmple is their HBO service. I signed up for it but it doesnt even provide all the episodes of currently runing series. Westworld is on episode 9 but this service only has four episodes available.

You won't find the on demand content in the guide. You will have to find it on the home screen. If you go to "networks" you can find ABC, Fox, and NBC. From there you can find the individual shows. They don't show up in the guide because the guide shows Live content. So shows here in theory should show up the day after they air much like Hulu. CBS, as they mentioned, is not available yet.

Go here: http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/packProg/attLocalChannels.jsp?assetId=att_cms_local_channels

And join the disappointed masses who expected local channels on this service.

Why can i not see any of the local network stations in the guide?  I know CBS is not under contract, but according to what I've read, ABC, FOX, AND NBC should be available...

I live in San Mateo. I entered my zip code in http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/packProg/attLocalChannels.jsp and I should be able to receive San Francisco local channels live stream.  I can see only VODs, no live stream on Amazon Fire. Can see locals on Desktop.

 

Not fixed for me either.

I did the zip code search after I signed up already. No local channels in Vegas or Henderson NV?!?!?
Wow!!! Big deal breaker. ATT strikes again!
I'll be cancelling as this is now useless to my household.
So much for cutting the overpriced tether. Seemed like a good idea... in theory.
What say you ATT/Direct TV?
When will this be a non issue on Apple TV?

Yes, many people are going to go back to Vue or Sling because of these issues. I live in the far northern fringe of the NYC broadcast area an a regular antenna is not going to work because the complex owner don't allow them anyway! Vue gave me local channels and I'm more worried about that then some dumb Viacom channels! I really thought that Directv Now was going to be different....Well, back to the Vue. Like the man said on Full Metal Jacket. "Work on it!" Who signed off on this Mickey Mouse B. S...,.....

I agree. This situation with NBC makes it seem as the initial press releases were deceitful. Hopefully this is just a temporary situation but some clarification would go a long way.

This is how I have to access CSN on the web since it doesn't show in my network list.  The CSN channel shows blank on my Apple TV guide, but atleast it shows.

So why can't we watch NBC on any streaming device like the FireTV? When would this be available? I find it ridiculous that this was not known before this came out. Not having CBS is one thing but limiting a channel to only phone streaming is horrible in my eyes especially when NBCSN is available on all devices. 

 

To make it worse we can't sign in on to the NBC family of apps to watch anywhere or even on the same devices as DirecTV Now. 

 

When will we be able to watch NBC on all devices? This needs to be added or my $105 pre pay is worthless.

I signed up for Direct TV Now & noticed that neither NBC or ABC streams live. Why not? And how about our local NBC & ABC affiliate??

not worth it if we can can't get these stations....
