Locast Launches Its Free Live TV Service in Los Angeles & San Francisco





Today Locast rolled out its free live TV streaming service in Los Angeles and San Francisco bringing the total number of Locast markets to 13. Locast is a live TV streaming service that launched back in January 2018 in New York City to offer access to 15 stations including ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. Recently Locast has been rolling out to new markets including South Dakota. Don’t look for Locast to stop there according to the people behind the service they plan to keep expanding into other markets later this year. With Locast you can stream ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC among others for free in Denver, Washington DC., San Francisco, Los Angeles, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, New York, and South Dakota.

“We’ve been marching westward, and we couldn’t be more excited that we’ve hit the Pacific,” said David Goodfriend, founder of Locast. “Now, anyone located in Los Angeles or San Francisco can get their over-the-air local broadcast station’s news, weather, emergency information, or sports programming online without paying an arm and a leg for cable, satellite or subscription OTT service fees.”

“Los Angeles, home to Hollywood and the entertainment industry, loves good TV.  Now, Angelenos can get their local broadcast TV stations online through Locast, staying connected to the best in local and network programming,” added Goodfriend.

“With the professional football pre-season around the corner, football fans in California now can watch their local teams on a laptop, smartphone, smart TV, or other connected device without fear of blackouts, poor over-the-air reception, or outrageously priced sports packages,” Goodfriend noted.

Recently Locast was able to launch service in Sioux Falls and Rapid City thanks to generous contributions from local businesses and residents of these communities. “I believe that these kinds of local partnerships will be the foundation for Locast’s success for years to come. We hope to replicate this relationship with many local businesses in communities across the country,” said Goodfriend.
