Local Channels at second home in another state

With DirecTV streaming for two homes in different states, will I be able to get the local stations in the state in which I am using the streaming service?

Depends on the streaming device you use. If the device has location services or GPS, then yes. If not, the default is your home based locals.

Mobile devices should get the locals matching where you are. For “TV” streamers, I believe an Apple TV would also do this. I believe the other TV streaming devices (Roku, FireTV, AndroidTV/GoogleTV devices) would get the locals for your “home”.  It is unclear about the DTV Gemini device - I haven’t tried personally, but it’s possible that this can be set to a location, using the info here.  (Some reps have said this and that article implies it, but for several reasons I question whether this is true.)
