DIRECTV vs DISH Local Channels Comparison

Last updated on April 21st, 2022 by George Levint

For most new subscribers, local channels are a must. In addition to the quality programming, they help connect you to your community and neighborhood in ways few other media outlets can. Years ago, both DIRECTV and DISH used to charge extra for local channels, but they soon realized just about everyone wanted them and they were much better suited as part of their core service.

So, nowadays, provided you’re in the >98% of the U.S. where local coverage is available (some very remote rural areas excluded), you can get all your favorite network channels at no additional charge. Check out the table below for all the details.
