Locast’s Goodfriend on Station Blackouts: ‘Forget DirecTV, Forget Dish’
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.
