This morning DIRECTV NOW started to add more ABC and NBC affiliates. A few weeks ago DIRECTV NOW announced plans to add 40 more locals from ABC, NBC, and FOX.
In its press release about the new locals DIRECTV NOW said, “When we add these and other affiliates in the coming weeks, we’ll offer over 170 live local channels on DIRECTV NOW in more than 80 markets.”
Thanks to some readers we have confirmed that NBC WSAZ and ABC WCHS in Huntington – Charleston, WV area was added. WSAZ is owned by Gray Television who owns over 35 NBC affiliates around the United States. ABC WCHS is owned by the Sinclair Broadcasting Group who owns 14 ABC affiliates around the United States.
Update: We can now also confirm that NBC in Detroit and WSET ABC in Lynchburg, VA have been added.
Update #2: We can also add ABC and NBC added in Green Bay, WI and ABC WKEF 22 in Dayton Ohio to that list.
This does not mean all of the affiliates will be added at once, because DIRECTV NOW has a recent history of just rolling out channels as soon as they are ready, unlike other services that typically like to group them together and roll out a long list of locals at once.
Have you seen any new locals on DIRECTV NOW? Leave us a comment and let us know.
