@dulanic I found it, you have to go to guide. Its there hard to find and not an option like Sling has. Very small print. Once you click on the guide it shows up and you can then stream all channels. This guide scrolls and is very touchy on the Android app. OK on Chrome.

Locals are only available in large metro areas LA, New York, Dallas etc. It all depends on where the networks own and operate a local. The networks own and operate those markets outright so they dont have to enter into agreements with the local affliates in smaller markets like the one I live in here in Arkansas. It took DirectTV 5 years to get locals in NW Arkansas in the 90's.
If you are using Amazon a lot of locals have created there own apps or make the broadcast for news available in a browser.
Your only other option is Over the Air Antenna.

Is this /w PC or streaming device? Currentlty there seems to be an issue around seeing locals on FireTV & AppleTV. Since your profile shows New York, I'm pretty sure thats the problem for you too.

Are local channels - ABC, NBC, FOX available in the seattle area? I know most places have affiliate networks, so whats the deal with this?

NBC available only through the App or web-based streaming---is this "the plan" or something that is being worked to fix?
Also, what about ABC? ABC doesn't show up on my iPhone either.

Im not getting local channels either. Im in LA (so zip code shows available channels), on a desktop browser, but my IP geolocates to San Diego for some unknown reason from our IP provider. This part of service needs to be tweaked, or else might as well keep signed up with someone else...

The NBC thing is super frustrating. Can you let us know if this is a forever thing, or only for the time being?

Re: Local Channel Streaming with DIRECTV NOW
Some channels are on available the app, certain browsers, and devices. Some streaming devices, like the Fire Stick. Check out this link and select Unavailable Channels.
This is ridiculious. I can stream local NBC here in New York using Playstation Vue. NBC was the only local affiliate I wanted to watch.
