Logo for Locast

Locast, the nonprofit local broadcast TV service, has expanded once again and is now available for residents in the Portland market. This is the service’s 31st market.

Locast is now making 39 local channels available to around 3 million residents in the area, which includes the Oregon cities of Salem and Tillamook as well as the Washington cities of Vancouver, Longview, and Kelso.

Locast offers local broadcast TV via the internet for free, though the service will frequently ask for a $5 donation until that donation is set up by the user. Locast says that offering the channels is a public service offering news, weather, sports, entertainment, and emergency information to viewers via internet connected devices.

The channels available in the Portland market include KGW NBC 8, KPTV FOX 12, KATU ABC 2, KOIN CBS 6, PBS and PBS Kids, as well as DABL, Telemundo, Univision, Azteca America, Antenna, CourtTV, Mystery, MeTV, TrueCrime, The CW, BOUNCE, Quest, QVC, HSN, LAFF, COMET, ION, GRIT, Charge!, and more.

Locast now has over 2.5 million registered users in its available markets across the US. Visit locast.org for more information.
