Okay, as you all know I recently had a service call. I “moved” back yesterday but don’t see the “locals” changed on my phone app yet. I know locals on the app takes a little bit but when can I expect them? I’d like to stream my “locals”.

Mine was changed the following day after I really moved to a new DMA.

“Moved” back early on Friday and still the “locals” haven’t updated on my iPhone DirecTV app yet. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app a few times over the course of the weekend but no change.

I agree 100% with this!............I have only one local here, so the app is about useless.

I can't get ANY Locals on the app, tablet or Cell.
I chatted with them, and she turned them on and it worked, a day later they were gone.

As far as I am aware the "app" uses GPS and/or IP to determine locals and computer browser based streaming uses your IP address to determine locals. I've been able to view locals from all over the US on my computer by using VPN's in different areas of the US....

I’ve had my “moved” “locals” on my app before. It usually takes a while for the locals to change on my phone when I “move” back for a service call, and again when I “move” back out. I’ve never paid attention to the precise amount of time though. I assume it’s about a week for me, but again I’m not sure.

When I "moved" back last spring, my locals didn't change in the app on their own. After 5-6 weeks, I eventually had to work with support to get them to "re-sync" my online profile.

My “locals” actually changed back to my “moved” address on my DirecTV iPhone app yesterday!
