Developer's Channel Description: Watch local broadcast TV online for free. Locast is the first-ever nonprofit, local broadcast digital translator service. Now, if you're a cord-cutter, you never have to miss your local broadcast news, weather, or sports due to a lousy over-the-air signal. And if you still have cable or satellite, you no longer have to worry about dropped signals. TV as it was meant to be.
