Locast, the nonprofit local broadcast TV streaming service, is now delivering more than 45 local TV channels via the internet – for free – to those living in the Minneapolis and St. Paul market in Minnesota.

“For the first time, more than 4 million Minnesotans will be able to watch their local TV stations on their phones, tablets, laptops or streaming media devices,” said Locast Founder and Chairman David Goodfriend. “Local TV news is critical for receiving alerts about the 2020 elections, coronavirus-related safety information as well as staying informed about people in the community voicing their opinions through peaceful protest. This makes Locast an important lifeline for Minnesotans, especially for those who can’t get local TV channels from an off-air antenna or cannot afford a pay-TV subscription.”

Goodfriend continued, “Particularly when dealing with health, safety, or participation in our democracy through voting, Locast performs a critical public service by increasing access to local broadcasting. Minnesotans can stay on top of local emergency information, coverage of major party political conventions and local elections, professional football, and more – on the go, over the Internet – through Locast. We have used our best efforts to make local broadcast more accessible to you.”
