Posted at 1:53 PM, Aug 31, 2017

WKBW has become the first station serving the Buffalo / Western New York area to join DirecTV Now. It's part of an expansion by the AT&T owned DirecTV into more local markets.

DirecTV Now is a streaming television subscription, offering channels through a smart TV or connected device. You will be able to stream most WKBW and ABC programming live through a DirecTV Now subscription. As of this writing, no other local Buffalo television stations are available on the service.

WKBW continues to expand into a wide array of digital products, currently offering local news channels on Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Amazon's Alexa, as well as a dedicated app on the Apple App Store and Google Play for mobile devices.

You can sign up for DirecTV Now through AT&T's website.
