Find Your Local NBC Affiliate Channel Number on DIRECTV

You may have noticed that national broadcast networks like NBC often have varying channel numbers based on the location you’re watching in. And while that can sometimes make it difficult to find the network’s programming when you want to tune in, we’ve got the solution right here.

In this post you’ll find the specific channel number for your local NBC affiliate station depending on where you live, so you never have to worry about missing your favorite NBC shows like Law & Order, Chicago P.D., Found and so many more.

Watch NBC programming live with DIRECTV. Get started today.


While NBC is a nationwide TV broadcast network, they don’t have one owned-and-operated station that can reach all 140+ million homes across the United States. Even NBC’s 12 owned-and-operated stations can’t reach that many people around the country.

Which is why the broadcaster partners with local affiliate stations across the country to reach viewers in different areas. Hence, different regions may have different channel numbers for their local NBC station.

Some local stations  may not be available in some areas. To see if you’re affected, visit TV promise.


Find out what DIRECTV channel to tune into to watch all the great NBC content available today, from late night shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Saturday Night Live to competition reality TV like Deal or No Deal Island and The Voice. The list below is organized alphabetically by state. Use the links below to find your state more easily in the list.

And keep in mind, not every town or city will be listed out below. In most cases, the area listed that is closest to where you reside should have the same channel number. And when in doubt, you can input your zip code into DIRECTV’s channel locator to find out for sure.
