    im traveling on vacation and just noticed on my Directv app I can now view the locals of the area I’m in. I’ve seen this done before on the Directv now service but never on the regular Directv app.

    ditto. Although it only seems to show local Fox and NBC. No CBS or ABC

    Correct. When they killed mobile dvr you only see the local channels in the area you are in Beyond that also the channels displayed I believe depend on who they have a streaming agreement with

    O cool they turned that back on ... I noticed that years ago when I signed on to my D* account in VA when I was traveling in another state ... it had the locals of the location I/my phone was


    Must depend on the area ... I just turned my wifi off and cannot view local channels ... but I'm still I'm my home market (Norfolk va DMA)


    Here is an example from 2017 where I was able.to view local channels where I was geographically not where the account is
