DIRECTV NOW is rapidly adding new locals to its live TV streaming service today. We already heard of several new ABC affiliates being added but today DIRECTV NOW has also added several NBC stations.
AT&T has informed Cord Cutters News that it will be adding 35 more local ABC, NBC, and Fox affiliates starting next week. Now it seems that they have already started to roll out these new markets.
Today several readers have told us Kansas City, MO; Salt Lake City; Milwaukee; and West Palm Beach, FL have added their local NBC affiliates. Here are the markets that ABC was added today: Dallas-Fort Worth, Sacramento, Orlando, San Diego, Detroit, DC, Columbus, OH, Indianapolis, and Kansas City starting today. We currently do not have a list of new Fox affiliates that will be added.
According to AT&T it plans to have agreements in place with even more locals by the end of August 2017.
AT&T’s addition of more locals to DIRECTV NOW comes a week after both Hulu and PlayStation Vue flood the market with more local channels. Fubo TV also struck a deal with CBS to add CBS-owned stations and locals to its live TV streaming service.
In total ABC said back in April that about 100 of its stations will be coming to DIRECTV NOW. NBC announced a similar deal to bring many of its affiliates to services such as DIRECTV NOW. The only question now is when that will happen.
