Locast, the nonprofit local broadcast TV streaming service, is now available to those in the Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater TV market in Florida.
The announcement about Locast’s expansion to the area was made at the start of hurricane season, with Locast making a point to mention that the service can help keep residents informed through weather updates and emergency alerts. Football fans will also have access to local Tampa Bay Buccaneers games when the season starts.
“For the first time, Floridians located anywhere within the Tampa DMA will be able to watch all of their local TV stations on their phones, tablets, laptops or streaming media devices,” said Locast Founder and Chairman David Goodfriend. “Local TV news provides the most up-to-date emergency and disaster information, and it broadcasts critical alerts about hurricanes and coronavirus-related restrictions. As long as local TV stations continue to broadcast during major storms, Locast will remain a lifeline to those living within the Tampa metro area.”
With Locast, Tampa viewers will have access to the following channels: ABC 28/40, NBC 8, CBS 10, FOX 13, PBS, PBS Kids, Telemundo, The Florida Channel, Univision, Telexitos, MOVIES!, Estrella TV, Azteca America, MyNetworkTV, CourtTV, Mystery, Justice Network, The CW and more.
Locast is available on internet-connected devices such as phones, tablets, computers, and media players, for free. To view local TV, download the Locast app or visit online at www.locast.org.
