Earlier today, the free ad-supported streaming Local Now announced it was adding some new free channels today and later this year.
Local Now streams a large collection of free live and on-demand content. Originally launched as a 24/7 local news and weather app, over the years, it has slowly added a huge catalog of movies and TV shows free with ads.
Here are the channels Local Now added today:
- Ch 1562 craftsy tv
Local Now also announced a partnership with Bosco+ to bring free channels dedicated to high school sports to Local Now later this year. These new channels include a partnership with St. John Bosco High School (Bosco) of Bellflower, CA. Through his collaboration, Local Now will air live athletic programs from 16 of Bosco’s athletic teams. It will also feature overage of its robotics competitions, theater and musical productions, student life, and more.
“We’re excited to be at the forefront of supporting the Bosco+ FAST channel,” said Byron Allen, Founder/Chairman/CEO of Allen Media Group. “Collectively across all our free-streaming platforms, AMG has become a leader in local news, sports and entertainment, so the addition of excellent high school sports, arts and student life content provided by St. John Bosco High School is certainly a big win for us and our viewers.”
“The exposure to our school and our league that this partnership will provide to millions of people all over the country is unprecedented. The possibilities are endless, and we can’t wait to get started,” said Dr. Brian Wickstrom, President/CEO at Bosco.
“We’re very excited to partner with Allen Media Group to lead the way in forging a path for high school sports to ascend beyond traditional local exposure. We’re thrilled that our Bosco families and fans all across the country and worldwide will have the opportunity to tune into what our state and national championship teams are achieving on a regular basis,” said Dr. Eric Lane, Director of Athletics at Bosco.
