    I'm seriously looking at cutting the cord of Directv. But I live in NE MT and I am looking for a service that offers local channels LIVE.

    I know that Hulu offers local channels in my zip code. Does anyone else know of any more?

    Unfortunately Youtube TV does not offer locals.

    That is incorrect. I have Youtube TV and it has all my locals...except PBS

    Maybe they don't offer locals for where he is?

    They do not have locals for my zip code. That's why i'm asking if there is another service that has a wider range of locals.

    If you live in Montana, chances are exceedingly small that you're going to find anyone netcasting your locals (legal or otherwise). Of course "local" in Montana has a different meaning than it does in most other states as some of the markets cover a lot of acreage.

    Have you checked out Fubo? I live in South Dakota and it's tough to find streaming services that offer my locals as well. Hulu has all 4. Fubo has 3, just missing ABC. And Vue has Fox and ABC. The rest don't have any of them.

    I know you are with Direct TV but have you looked into Direct TV Now? They may have your local channels.

    I ran six counties in NE Montana and came up empty.
