In BTIG’s view Locast.org as one of the most disruptive media companies as it offers consumers HD-quality, broadcast television over the Internet for free, as Congress intended. Unlike Aereo, which was shut down by the Supreme Court (preventing Aereo from utilizing a workaround of the performance right), Locast.org operates under the non-profit exemption for the retransmission of copyrighted works within the US Copyright Act of 1976 (it is funded by donations). Locast.org uses geo-location to provide service only to consumers within a given DMA who could use a traditional free-to-air broadcast antenna to receive broadcast TV signals. Currently, Locast is available in 17% of US TV households including NYC, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Houston, Denver, and Philadelphia. Listen to the Interview <Here>
