I believe I know the answer to this one but I'll ask it anyhow, how does one get local subchannels with Directv?

Thanks

You don't through Directv, but you may be able to get them with the AM21 ota tuner module. It has limited capacity for sub channels though. You are better off using the tuner in your tv.

That's not going to make any difference. Locals are only carried under the must carry rules. I've never heard of a local channel carried just because customers wanted it.

If you're speaking of secondary OTA subchannels, DIRECTV won't carry those at all unless one of the big 4 networks are broadcast on them.

Doesn’t NBC own Cozi?

Yes, but Cozi is on the subchannel here, not NBC. HoTat2 was referring to areas where NBC could be on a subchannel, then Directv would carry it.

Although DISH carries LAFF, GET, GRIT and JUSTICE.
They may have the bandwidth available since their sports selections are limited compared to Directv.

Or he could get one of the TiVo DVRs for OTA or one of the many other DVR brands that also do OTA.

I put up a Costco UHF antenna in my window and it's able to pull several of my local subs in with varying quality. My home is in a hole surronded by hills. A neighbor of my in a worse location (lower than me) said he's getting good reception with an outdoor antenna. I almost never need to watch them, but if I do, I just select the TV input rather than the HDMI input for my DTV.
