Viewers in the Dallas metro area can now stream 14 local broadcast channels free – whether or not they have a pay TV subscription.
Locast.org, which launched a similar service for the New York market in January, says it is operating under federal copyright law, “which expressly allows non-profits to retransmit a local broadcast signal within that broadcaster’s market.”
The nonprofit in this case is the Sports Fans Coalition, which has vowed “to keep the promise of public access to local broadcasting.” That includes getting local news, weather, and sports “in the era of cord-cutting, changing broadcast signals, and internet video.”
Locast.org’s 14 Dallas stations include the four major broadcast networks, the CW, MyNetworkTV, Ion, PBS, four Spanish-language channels and a couple of religious outlets. For a list of all stations and schedules, visit locast.org/markets/?dma=623.
The service will ask users to register to verify they live in the Dallas market. If you do, please let us know about your Texan Locast experience in the comments section below!
