Right the Big Ten Conference’s college football season started, the free live TV streaming service Locast has added Indianapolis to its lineup of TV markets.
Locast is a nonprofit streaming service that enables users to stream their local ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS stations through it. Again, no charge to the user.
As of today, TV viewers in Indianapolis that make a Locast account will now have access to 42 over-the-air channels such as WRTV6 (ABC), WTHR13 (NBC), WTTV4 (CBS), FOX59, WISH, WFYI (PBS), PBS Kids, MOVIES!, Telemundo, TruCrime Network, Bounce, Antenna TV, The CW, CourtTV, GRIT, NewsNet, Daystar and more, according to GlobalNewsWire.
This means if there is an Indianapolis Colts game on CBS or FOX, viewers will be able to stream the game for free through Locast.
Of course, all of the local channels will cover local and national news programming, which could come in handy for upcoming election coverage, as well as provide coverage for this year’s college football season.
The streaming service does play an ad everytime when someone changes the channel and after watching content on a channel.
To avoid the ads, users can pay as low as $5 a month for Locast as a donation to the service, where the nonprofit’s ads will be removed from both channel changes and the ad after 15 minutes of watching the service.
Locast is available to stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
