    Does DirecTV Now follow your local stations when you're away from home? For example, if I'm out of town on business will I get local (business trip locale) channels on my laptop or home channels?

    Not 100% sure but almost, that you would still get your locals, even when travelling.

    You get the locals of the area you are in. If you lived in Cleveland and traveled to Dallas. When you launch the service on your phone after arriving in Dallas you would get the Dallas locals.

    It sucks and one of the reasons I left DirecTV NOW. The biggest one is after their update last summer the way they obtain location data on devices (live appleTV, roku, Fire etc) would not pull the correct guide data for my package or regional sports. Its a mess.

    Just like with cable or satellite; it depends on if your locals ok DirecTV NOW to broadcast their Network on the app. At first we didn't get locals; which was ok for us because we have an antenna. Now we have ABC, CBS, and FOX; all except NBC yet.

    I can only comment from using YouTube TV, but occasionally I'll get asked to update my location, especially if I'm out of town. I have the option of using my zip code rather than allowing GPS location.
