Locast is Now Streaming ABC, CBS, FOX, & NBC For Free on iOS

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

Last week Locast has quietly added support for Roku Players and Roku TV. Now locast has launched an app for iOS on iPhones and Android. Now you can stream your locals for free on iPhones and Android.

Locast also recently announced the launch of a new Android app making it easier to stream your locals. Locast parent company Sports Fans Coalition is a nonprofit and says they have an exception in the FCC rules that allows them to air locals without paying them 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 non-profits to avoid many of the fees companies would typically pay.

The Sports Fan Coalition was created for the purpose of launching Locast and is headed by David Goodfriend. The question now is how will broadcasters react to this new service, but Goodfriend is no stranger to pushing back against broadcasters and the NFL.
