It depends on where you live and who owns the station. We have the CW here in the Dallas market. There are networks that are still in a stalemate with AT&T regarding re-transmission rights.
What is your zip code?

I just had U-verse installed in the Clinton, MS area. I was trying to watch the Flash and discovered The CW channel is not in this area. Any idea why?
Assuming there is actually a CW channel in your broadcasting area maybe that channel couldn't come into agreement for re-transmission on uverse. If the channel is too far from your location uverse may not consider it "local" and not carry it.
If I did the research right your WRBJ channel 34 is the closest The CW station. And it isn't that close. But you might be able to get it with a descent OTA antenna.
According to the CW-TV website, The CW is carried in zipcode 39056 on WJTV and is a sub-channel (12.2). Uverse does not carry sub-channels in most markets.
Don't mess with old people. The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.
WJBW appears to be a Florida radio station advertising for a local to them.
I checked your zip on tvfool.com. You are in a "bad" location when it comes to local tv stations even using an antenna. It looks like CBC, NBC, and ABC may be considered "local". CW is about 117 miles away and definitely not local, not even for an antenna.
Below is the tvfool.com data for your zip assuming an antenna 15 feet above ground level.

I just got Att U Verse. I don't see The CW? Does it get The CW. I see CBS.
No idea. Why not post in the U-verse forum located here instead of the internet streaming forum for DirecTV Now that you have posted.
It is on Ch 5 and Ch 1005. And this topic is in watching U-verse tv that is what I clicked on to get here.
It is helpful if you tell us where you are and what the station ID is.
For example, here in the Dallas market, our CW affiliate (KDAF) is channel 9/1009 on the Uverse guide but channel 33 over the air.
Every market is different, hence the question of location. We get the CW but some markets do not. We got our CBS affiliate back but some markets did not.
Sorry I thought I did, Columbus OH

Have you tried channel 5 in SD or 1005 in HD?
Also, if your local CW is a digital subchannel such as 5.2 or 9.2, U-Verse will most likely not have it, as they generally don't carry subchannels in any market.
Couple of points. The CW is a significant network and here in west palm is broadcast OTA as 34.1, so not a subchannel. Call letters are WTVX. Uverse carries it as channel 4/1004.
I think someone tried to spam this thread, given the recent reply dates. I'll close the old thread.
How can we improve?
