DIRECTV NOW just started to add more CBS and ABC affiliates. As best we can tell DIRECTV NOW added several CBS affiliates owned by Gray Television and several Lockwood Broadcast TV stations.
In total Gray Television owns 36 CBS affiliates around the United States yet we can only confirm a few have been added. Recently DIRECTV NOW has not been waiting to add every affiliate at once from a company but adding them as they are ready. Among the CBS affiliates that are added is KWCH in Hutchinson, Kansas and WDBJ in Roanoke.
Update: We can also confirm that NBC WYFF in Greenville, SC is live on DIRECTV NOW. WYFF is owned by Hearst Television.
Update #2: We are now hearing that Raycom Media owned CBS affiliates are going live.
Update #3: We are also hearing Sinclair owned FOX affiliates are going live on DIRECTV NOW.
Lockwood Broadcast TV owns 4 ABC affiliates in in Kansas including Wichita, Colby, Garden City, and Ada Oklahoma. It is very likely that all of their affiliates will soon be live on DIRECTV NOW.
Did you find a new local last night? Please leave a comment and let us know what you found.
DIRECTV NOW has made it clear that adding local affiliates is a priority for them. Every week they have been adding a few locals here and there. DIRECTV NOW is not alone in their efforts to add a local TV to their streaming service. Hulu, PlayStation Vue, fuboTV, YouTube TV, and others have all been rushing to add as many locals as they can.
