DIRECTV NOW Just Added More CBS Stations

Recently DIRECTV NOW started to add CBS owned and operated CBS affiliates. Yet a few for some reason never got added. Well now a few more have been added.

Readers today have told Cord Cutters News that KCAL 9 the CBS affiliate in Los Angeles, California is now streaming on DIRECTV NOW. Now as best as we can tell most CBS owned and operated stations are now on DIRECTV NOW.

The following are all the CBS stations that CBS currently owns:

  • Alexandria, Minnesota
  • Baltimore
  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Denver
  • Detroit
  • Fort Worth
  • Los Angeles
  • Miami
  • Minneapolis
  • New York City
  • Philadelphia
  • Pittsburgh
  • San Francisco
  • Stockton, California
  • Walker, Minnesota

We also recently learned that CBS and Sinclair had agreed to renew four new CBS affiliates that Sinclair owns. According to reports, this means that these 4 new CBS affiliates will be streaming soon on DIRECTV NOW & YouTube TV. (What does soon mean? We have no idea could be months from now.)

That deal with Sinclair includes KGAN-TV, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; KGBT-TV in Harlingen, Texas, and WGME-TV in Portland, Me., plus WTVH-TV in Syracuse. (Note Sinclair recently struck a deal with CBS for many of their other CBS owned stations.)

    CORRECTION!: KCAL 9 in Los Angeles is an Independent Station (despite owned by CBS) and KCBS 2 (CBS O&O in Los Angeles formerly KNXT) carries CBS programming.

    AZ Still doesn’t have CBS or NBC. After many promises still no DVR. Will probably cancel if they don’t show up by the the end of the month or maybe sooner.

    KCAL has been there from the first day they added the CBS owned stations, and as has been said already, it doesn’t show CBS programs.
