NewsON, the streaming service that lets cord cutters watch local news from around the United States without the need for a cable service, announced today that they are adding 12 new stations and will top 150 stations during the summer of 2016.

This success is a testament to our team’s and partners’ visions to provide access to timely, relevant local news across platforms. We look forward to capitalizing on this momentum and achieving major new milestones in the coming months.”
