AT&T said it’s adding Locast, an app that streams local broadcaster TV for free, to DirecTV and U-Verse starting Thursday.
Locast provides access to local broadcast stations including ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX to people with broadband-connected receivers. It’s available in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington DC, Houston, Boston, Denver and Baltimore.
AT&T said it’ll still provide its free Local Channel Connector service if a local station isn’t otherwise available. The Local Channel Connector uses a free digital broadcast antenna to capture a station’s signals.
