More local channels available than ever before via legal streaming providers

With all of the many benefits of legal streaming, one challenge of cutting the cord is being able to watch your local channels for news and sports on NBC, FOX, ABC and CBS. You could buy a pair of Rabbit Ears or an indoor HD antenna. But ideally, having those local channels integrated into your streaming provider should be your platform of choice.

Thankfully, streaming providers such as DIRECTV NOW, fuboTV, YouTube TV and PlayStation Vue are adding local channels at a rapid pace so you won’t miss out on your favorite games and television shows.

And for soccer fans, many of the streaming providers are adding the over-the-air FOX network, which is crucial because 38 of the 64 World Cup games will be on the big FOX network. And with most kickoff times at 8am ET, 11am ET and 2pm ET, you’ll want to use a streaming provider that features a DVR too so you can record the games to watch later.

As of press time, here are the leading streaming providers and the number of local networks they carry in cities across the USA:

• Cities with local FOX: 116
