    If that's the reason, then why are all of the locals on my Samsung Galaxy tablet? It's only on the Samsung Galaxy phone and Kindle Fire that all but channel 5 are missing.

    Thanks, I registered the phone for Mobile DVR and all of the locals are now showing up. I was already getting all of them on the Samsung Galaxy Tab, so it must have been registered already.

    I called Directv tech support tonight. .I was told that I could watch what was my "local channels" with pro football.. and I stated that I had east and west coast.. and was "assured " that yes.. go to the app and just tune the channel.. is this against what I am reading here? or do you find this to be credible?

    Why don't you try streaming your local channels as a test? Both at home and somewhere else when you have an internet connection.

    Make sure you read KyL416's post above (#20). But I'm not sure if you have DNS if that changes.

    The DirecTV provided streams for the Fox O&O's are only for in market viewers who get them as part of their locals on channel 5 in NYC and 11 in LA, and not DNS viewers who watch them in the 390s. The liveStreaming value in the feed used by the app is only associated with the local number and not the DNS number, so the option to watch online isn't even presented to you. It's also georestricted so if your account is based in the NYC or LA market, but you travel outside of the market, the stream will not work.

    However, if you have Mobile DVR you can get them as that is taken from a tuner on your Genie.

    The Sunday Ticket blackouts are based on what your actual CBS and Fox affiliates air, even if you're grandfathered and subscribe to DNS instead of locals. So if the NYC and LA stations are airing different games, those games will still be available via Sunday Ticket, while the games that are airing on your local stations will not be available.

    If I understand correctly, the Verizon deal is only for in-market and national telecasts? So I can still watch out-of-market games on my phone via the Sunday Ticket app?

    Another question: I have the Sunday Ticket app ready to go on my Samsung tablet, but I don't see any app for the Kindle Fire HD in the Amazon app store. Does that mean there isn't an app for the Kindle Fire, or is there an app that can be sideloaded? I have the DirecTV app installed on the Kindle Fire, but the 700 and above channels don't show up on it. Anyone know if there is a way to watch Sunday Ticket on the Kindle Fire?

    I am able to watch the game on both of my LIL CBS feeds right from the app. It looks a little better than the other day; you can read the graphics. Same deal with Fox. Is this because I have Verizon?

    I was able to stream an out-of-market game on the Sunday Ticket app, but only one stream is allowed per account. If you try to stream to another device, it will prompt you to log out of the other device first. I wasn't able to stream any of the local telecasts via the DirecTV app to a tablet - it gave me a message that the receiver was already in use or the game was already being streamed. The game was recording on one of my DVRs. I stopped one of the recordings to make sure all tuners weren't in use, but it didn't make any difference. At least I was able to stream an out-of-market game with the Sunday Ticket app while I watched a game on TV.
