DIRECTV vs DISH Local Channels Comparison

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 95%+ of the U.S. where local coverage is available (expect that number to get closer to 100% by 2016), you can get all your favorite network channels at no additional charge. Check out the table below for all the details.
