Local channels gone

Why are ABC, CBS, and NBC gone from my package. I’m paying for them, I should be able to see them.

Re: Local channels gone

What device are you using? do you see your local on your mobile device?

Re: Local channels gone

No, but it showed up for a few days after the others disappeared. Now that they’re back, it’s gone. Also, checking the package list, it says I should get it now.

Re: Local channels gone

The package list only indicates OnDemand for the major networks. As for live locals, not everyone receives them. DirecTV Now offers local channels within specified market areas. Your eligibility is dependent on your billing zip code, and your access depends on the physical location of the device. Access to local channels depends upon the licensing agreements that DirecTV Now has with local affiliates at your current location. Local, regional, and national providers hold the streaming and broadcast rights to these channels in local markets. AT&T, with DirecTV Now, continues to work with providers to add local streaming options. If streaming from a mobile device, local channel availability is dependent upon your billing zip code and the current physical location of the device.

 

The only way to be sure is to use the tool to determine if you are to receive any local broadcasts. You could or could not be receiving them in error.

Re: Local channels gone

I have the same problem. Have had them since I started Directv now and last night all my network icons disappeared after I got a message on the screen that the license did not allow me to watch! I have Roku tvs and according to the list I should be receiving locals in my zip code! I can still watch them on my phone and computer which makes no sense to me. Not happy!

Same as others before you. Have you verified your IP location by going here

Re: Local channels gone

This is really frustrating. I have been a customer since Dec 2016 and only one local channel (FOX) is available for streaming for me. Your competitors have all 4 channels available. May be this is time for me to switch my loyalties.
