Is your area not on this list?
Many customers in this situation can still access local channels via an off-air antenna. If you are within distance of a tower and can capture the signal you'll still get your locals. Simply switch from DIRECTV to antenna using buttons on your remote. Use our antenna locator to find the right antenna for you.
You can also increase your television reception by replacing the cable connecting the antenna to your television. Adding additional equipment, like external amplifiers or ghost cancellers, can work well too.
A number of DIRECTV® customers may also be eligible for non-local network feeds. Eligibility is governed by federal law†. The following factors may determine your eligibility:
- Location relative to a metropolitan area.
- Ability to receive television signals of any type.
- Distance from television broadcasting towers.
