Wondering How to Watch the NFL After the Locast App Shutdown?

Date: September 2, 2021

With today’s news about the Locast streaming app shutting down for now, after a court battle brought by the broadcasters (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX), we at Channel Master want to give you the best alternative so you do not miss any of the much anticipated NFL and College Football seasons as well as the upcoming MLB playoffs.

What was Locast? Locast streamed local TV stations to users that did have access to them through a cable or satellite TV service, or who did not use a digital antenna. The service was available in some 36 local markets, which reached more than half of the U.S. population. The service was similar to Aereo, which operated on a commercial basis with users paying to lease individual antennas placed in nearby warehouses. Aereo was shut down following a copyright infringement lawsuit by the major networks over the retransmission of their programming without consent and compensation.

What is Channel Master’s alternative? Channel Master doesn’t want the millions of people who relied on the streaming service to miss their local OTA programming especially with the NFL season starting next week. The FLATenna is a flexible, paper-thin indoor TV antenna able to receive over-the-air (OTA) broadcast signals from 35 miles. The reversible black and white finish provides added versatility for moving the antenna to different locations in the home while remaining aesthetically pleasing. The FLATenna provides free live digital TV networks including ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, PBS, The CW, Univision, Telemundo and more.
