DirectTV Includes Neighboring Local Channels
Some DirectTV subscribers have complained that they cannot get all of the local channels that they used to watch on cable or antenna TV. DirectTV was quick to include local channels for most major viewing areas. A problem developed, though, for those who were used to watching neighboring local channels. DirectTV has heard those complaints and made significant strides towards including the neighboring local channels that you enjoyed before switching to satellite service.
DirectTV and Neighboring Local Channels
Neighboring local channels, also known as significantly viewed channels, are channels broadcasted from a community near your city. If you rely on a digital antenna to watch TV, then you can often get these channels because you are close enough to the community from which they emanate to pick up the station’s signal. For instance, if you live in Baltimore, MD, then you are probably used to watching some channels from Washington, DC. This created some problems with DirectTV’s local channel programming because the company did not originally think of neighboring channels as local. Many viewers, however, wondered where their favorite “local” channels went when they switched to DirectTV.
DirectTV Solves the Neighboring Local Channels Problem
The problem of neighboring local channels was largely an oversight on DirectTV’s behalf, so the company got to work on a solution that would allow viewers to watch the channels that they considered local but were not actually from their cities. DirectTV has not added neighboring local channels to all viewing areas, but the company has come a long way. It makes sense for DirectTV to start working on the larger metropolitan areas first since they have more viewers. Subscribers who live in less populated cities can expect their significantly viewed channels to appear on DirectTV as soon as the company reaches their areas and determines which channels should count as “local.”
