Recently Locast has been adding more channels in many markets. This week it was New York Citys turn. Typically Locast offers the big five like ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, and The CW. This week though, Locast added additional sub-channels like WLNY 55, Comet TV, Stadium, and This TV to the lineup in New York.
So far, we have confirmed the addition of new channels in Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York City but other markets may have also added channels. If your local Locast market has added new channels, please leave a comment and let us know what channel was added and in what market.
Locast is a free streaming service offering live streaming locals in a handful of markets. Locast does this by taking the signal from an antenna and streaming the channels online.
Back in July ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC sued to shutdown Locast, saying it did not have the rights to stream local OTA TV. Locast sent Cord Cutters News the following statement about the lawsuit. “Locast is an independent, non-profit organization that provides a public service retransmitting free over-the-air broadcasts. Its activities are expressly permitted under the Copyright Act. The fact that no broadcasters have previously filed suit for more than a year and a half suggests that they recognize this. We look forward to defending the claims—and the public’s right to receive transmissions broadcast over the airwaves—in the litigation.”
