Local Now continues to benefit from its expanded partnership with NBCUniversal, with the free ad-supported platform getting a bevy of new channels today.
The streaming platform, owned by Allen Media Group, added 11 NBC local news channels to its lineup, as well as entertainment channels American Cries and NBC LX Home. It also gets the national Telemundo al Dia channel, and four regional Telemundo channels covering California, Florida, Texas and the Northeast. In the coming months, Local Now will also get the national news channel Telemundo Notificas Ahora too.
Local Now has grown to be a major source of local programming — particularly news — on streaming, and is one of the key beneficiaries of the consumer shift to so-called FAST platforms that offer free programming with commercials.
“Local Now is the leader in free local news, and with the addition of the 11 NBC local news and four Telemundo FAST channels, we are now able to expand our local coverage even more,” said Byron Allen, founder, chairman and CEO of Allen Media Group. “Strong partnerships like this one with NBCUniversal is what has fueled Local Now’s rapid growth and allowed us to deliver on our mission of providing our audience the best free
streaming content available.”
