DIRECTV NOW Starts Adding More Sinclair FOX Affiliates & More CBS Affiliates





BOB'S BURGERSDIRECTV NOW is having a busy week adding locals. Yesterday we reported that they had started to add ABC, CBS, and NBC affiliates. Now we have learned they are also adding more FOX and even more CBS affiliates.

Thanks to our readers we can confirm that not only did DIRECTV NOW add Gary Television CBS affiliates, but they have also added Hearst Television, Raycom Media, and E. W. Scripps-owned CBS affiliates.

Before last week the only CBS affiliates available on DIRECTV NOW had been CBS-owned and -operated affiliates. Now we are seeing a flood of CBS affiliates that likely won’t stop anytime soon.

This week saw the addition of many locals, but it is likely just the start. There are still many Hearst, Raycom, and Scripps-owned affiliates not on DIRECTV NOW but likely coming soon.

DIRECTV NOW has made it clear that adding local affiliates is a priority. Every week they have been adding a few locals here and there. DIRECTV NOW is not alone in their efforts to add 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.
