The service, which went live in Milwaukee Friday, carries signals for more than 40 local channels, including a batch of low-power channels not available on local cable or satellite services. Through the Locast site or its app, local TV stations can be watched on smartphones, tablets, computers or streaming media devices.
Programs are accessed via a TV grid that’s similar to those delivered by cable and satellite TV systems.Chris Foran
Locast, a free local TV translator service, is now available in the Milwaukee market
Locast.org, America’s only nonprofit, free, local broadcast TV digital translator live TV streaming service, was founded by Sports Fans Coalition NY (SFCNY), a New York-based nonprofit, fan-advocacy group formed in 2017. Locast launched in 2018. SFCNY is the first local chapter of Sports Fans Coalition, Inc., which led the successful campaign to end the FCC’s Sports Blackout Rule and continues to advocate for fans. Locast was named the 2020 most-improved streaming service by TechHive. As a nonprofit, Locast is supported by user donations and is available at www.locast.org.
