Locast Is Working On An Apple TV App




, ,

Locast, a new live TV streaming service that launched in January in New York City, offers access to 15 stations including ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. With Locast you can stream ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC for free in Denver, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, and New York.

Earlier this week, Locast launched an app on iPhones and iPads and now they say an Apple TV app is in the works. In a statement to BestAppleTV.com, the staff behind Locast confirmed that they are developing an Apple TV app that they hope to launch by the end of 2018.

Locast also recently announced the launch of a new Android and Roku app making it easier to stream your locals. Locast parent company, the nonprofit Sports Fans Coalition, says there is an exception in the FCC rules that allows them to air locals without paying for the service. They are hoping to be protected by Title 17, Chapter 1, section 111 a) 5 of the Copyright Act a section that allows nonprofits to avoid many of the fees companies would typically pay.

The Sports Fan Coalition was created to launch Locast and is headed by David Goodfriend. How will broadcasters react to this new service? Goodfriend is no stranger to pushing back against broadcasters and the NFL.
