Locast expanded to its 36th market today, with its launch in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, TV market, which includes cities from Sheboygan to Kenosha. 

The channels available in Milwaukee include WTMJ NBC 4, WISN ABC 12, WDJT CBS 58, WITI FOX 6, PBS, PBS Kids, as well as Telemundo, Antenna, CourtTV, Movies, Azteca, Defy, Mystery, Grit, MeTV, TrueCrime, BOUNCE, World, LAFF, COMET, Charge!, and more.

“Locast is an invaluable free tool for residents to stay informed about major storms, health updates, local news, weather, and sports through their local broadcast TV stations. Especially in areas where over-the-air broadcast reception can be unreliable, Milwaukee residents can use Locast to watch their local TV channels via the internet on their phones, tablets, computers or streaming media devices,” the company wrote in its announcement.

While the local channel streaming service is free, users will get frequent disruptive notifications asking for a $5 monthly donation for the service. When an automatic monthly donation is set up, the notifications will stop and users can watch their channels without interruption.

Milwaukee is also home to university students, retirees, first responders, and low-income households, among others, who can qualify for the Locast Cares Program – a way for users who cannot donate financially to watch their local TV channels without receiving donation-request interruptions. The program is open to the first 25,000 applicants and is available for one year. Apply at Locast.org/cares.
