The free live TV streaming service Locast as of today has just added support to TV viewers in Detroit.
This means that those in the Detroit TV market can watch their local ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC and PBS stations via Locast free of charge.
Locast support in the Detroit TV market impacts the following counties in Michigan: Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Sanilac, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne.
Support in this area comes just right before the start of the 2020 NFL season, meaning if there is a Detroit Lions game that FOX, CBS or NBC is airing that day, viewers will be able to watch it from Locast for free.
Locast founder and chairman David Goodfriend said in a statement to GlobalNewswire that he is glad a significant portion of Michigan TV viewers will get the free support they need.
“For the first time, more than 4.5 million residents in Michigan will be able to watch their local TV stations on their phones, tablets, laptops or streaming media devices,” he said. “Local TV news is critical for receiving alerts about the 2020 elections, coronavirus safety information as well as staying informed about people in the community voicing their opinions. This makes Locast an important lifeline for Michiganders, especially for those who can’t get local TV channels from an off-air antenna or cannot afford a pay-TV subscription.”
Locast is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
