Local Channels Unavailable

Our local channels are unavailable, is there a way to fix this?

Re: Channels problem

Sound like you are using conventional DirecTV, not DirecTV Now, since DTVN doesn't have channel numbers. This is a forum for DirecTV Now, and we don't know anything about the conventional service.

Re: Local Channels Unavailable

Same problem here, but I noticed that all the settings have been messed up, like the screen resolution and favorite channels list.  I'm assuming its something on their end.  Restarting the box now to see if that helps.


Edit:  Yep, resetting seems to have fixed the issue.  Just hit the red button on your dvr.

Re: local channels

Where are you located? I am in central IL and all of a sudden today we do not have local channels either!! I am so sick of Direct TV. Cannot wait until my contract is up! I have been on hold with customer service for over 45 mins now and waiting online chat for 20 mins. This is ridiculous!! So I reset the entire system and now all local channels are back.

Re: Help

I have no local channels and have tried to reset it numerous times and it is not helping. Been on hold now for over 15 minutes. Why does the reset work for some people and not others?

No Channels From 2 through 69

I called Directv about no channel reception from 2 through 69. They told me the Broadcasting Company is having problems and engineers are working on it. So, no local channels until further notice.

Local channels "not available"

I am getting ALL of my Direct TV channels, except today my local channels were "Channel not availble". Do I just need to re-set my system?
