DirecTV Adding U.P. Local Channels Next Week

Lots of people in the U.P. have been waiting for one of the major satellite TV providers to make local channels available in the region.

In less than a week, the wait will be over.

DirecTV called us at UGN News today to say they’re just about to add local channels from the Marquette TV market, which includes us.

They’re doing it next Wednesday.

If you’re an existing customer, the company says the local channels will automatically be available for you starting that day, at no additional cost.

But they say they’re not adding CBS in the U.P., so if you’re a DirecTV customer, you’d have to watch them over the air.
