I have since discontinued my ATT TV/DTV Stream service, but when I initially signed up, I got all my in-market Locals (Cape Girardeau-Paducah-Southern IL DMA), all the St Louis DMA Locals, and CBS and NBC from the Memphis, TN DMA

The 2 Memphis stations went away after about 6 months, but I had the STL and my DMA’s Locals until I cancelled service

No other service, be it Sat, Cable, nor Streaming, gave me Locals beyond the Cape Girardeau-Paducah-Southern IL Locals

I wouldn’t argue with it too much, especially if you are an NFL Football fan. You get more NFL Game variety in the 12 Noon and 3:05/3:25 timeslots with 2 sets of CBS and FOX

Hi @Ludwick557 Thanks for reaching us, and for letting us know of your situation.

The reason why you may be experiencing this is because in some specific scenarios you can get 2 different counties programming based on your zip code. This happens when there are 2 counties included on the same zip code, for example, you could see local channels from Hancock MS, and Harrison MS.

Periodically you may receive updated local programming based on an updated Designated Market Area Assignment. We recommend you to check if the Location service on your device is turned off, in that way we can make sure that the problem is not related with the configuration of your device, you can also find the steps to see your location service status.

Likewise, in case that the issues persists, you can always reach us back and we'll happy to give you a hand.

Sebastian, DIRECTV Community Specialist.
