Frndly TV is Adding Some Local TV Stations





Today the Live TV streaming service Frndly TV announced that it will for the first time offer some live local TV stations as apart of its service.

“As cord cutting continues to accelerate across the country,” said Michael McKenna, Frndly TV co-founder and Chief Programming Officer, “we at Frndly TV are proud to be able to help support the local broadcast industry, and in particular, the important public service of delivering local news, by bringing back homes and viewers into the television ecosystem.  We hope to continue to add a local station in more markets across the country in the near future.”

The six local broadcast stations (five independents and one CW affiliated station) and markets are:

  • KDCO, Channel 3, Denver, CO DMA (Scripps – Independent)
  • WMYD, Channel 20, Detroit, MI DMA (Scripps – CW Affiliate)
  • WACY, Channel 32, Green Bay, WI DMA (Scripps – Independent)
  • KMCI, Channel 38, Kansas City, MO DMA (Scripps – Independent)
  • WFMZ, Channel 69, Philadelphia, PA DMA (Marantha Broadcasting Co. – Independent)
  • WHDT, Channel 9, West Palm Beach, FL DMA (Scripps – Independent)

Frndly TV says these stations will be live by April 30, 2024.

“This is a significant milestone for Frndly TV.  As we built out Frndly TV and added more national channels, the one thing missing was providing our customers with the local programming they want and care about – especially local news and popular syndicated content.  With the addition of these local stations in each market, we are delivering to our customers news and entertainment they want at a price they can afford.” Said McKenna.
