Locast a 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. Recently Locast expanded into a 7th market with the addition of Washington DC. and Baltimore. 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., Baltimore, Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, New York, and now South Dakota.
Today Locast announced that they are adding the state of South Dakota to their service.
“Serving Rural America has always been a goal of ours,” said David Goodfriend, Chairman of SFCNY. “Like much of rural America, many households in South Dakota cannot receive an over-the-air signal and in some cases are more likely to have access to broadband than to broadcast. Now, with Locast, our friends in South Dakota can receive a strong, reliable video stream of their local programming, including critical news, weather, and local public interest programming.”
According to Locast it 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.
