You may be considering making the leap to DirecTV, but what about your favorite local channels? If you take the plunge and go for DirecTV installation, will you still be able to get your local channels? The answer is yes!
With DirecTV, local channels are included at no extra cost with your qualifying TV package in most markets. In fact, more than 99 percent of households in the United States can get local channels with no extra charge. They are often included no matter which package you choose.
Keep up with your local community
There are a lot of channels out there these days. From big networks like CNN and the Food Network to niche channels that focus on a particular interest or genre, it’s impossible to watch them all. But even with this plethora of choices, we still need to be able to tune into local broadcasts for a number of reasons.
For example, big news networks will cover important national and international stories and politics that affect us all, but what about local news stories? Local news broadcasts are vital to keep up with what’s going on in your community. The same goes for local weather—while big networks may touch on the weather in your general area, local broadcasts will focus specifically on what’s happening in your city and how it will affect your daily life.
Local sports coverage
Sports is a big part of many people’s lives, and watching games and matches live can be an incredibly important piece of that. How many times have you or someone you know scheduled their day around watching a sporting event live on TV?
With DirecTV installation, you will be able to watch your favorite local sports teams live and in HD. In more than 98 percent of U.S. households, local channels are broadcast in HD, with more channels being added all the time. As any sports fan will tell you, once you’ve seen live sports in HD, there’s no going back to standard definition TV.
It’s not only about the big teams in the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL or WNBA, either—local sports broadcasts often include college and high school games as well. It’s quite a thrill to watch your local high school sports team in the playoffs on the big screen, especially when it’s your child on the field or it’s your alma mater you’re rooting for.
No hassles, no extra charges
While there are many reasons why you may want to make sure local channels are included in your TV package, the best part about getting local TV channels on DirecTV is how easy it is. You don’t even have to worry about whether you will get local channels, or specifically check to make sure they’re included, because they will be already automatically included in your TV package!
