EL SEGUNDO, Calif., May 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- AT&T (NYSE:T) will add Locast's interactive app on its DIRECTV and U-verse platforms starting today.
Locast is a public service application that offers viewers with broadband-connected receivers access to their local ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and other broadcast stations streamed via the Internet and is currently available to 27 million users in nine markets -- New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington, Houston, Boston, Denver and Baltimore.
AT&T continues to offer consumers new ways to access the video content they want. We believe Locast's public service offering will make sense for many of them.
AT&T also will continue to offer its complimentary Local Channel Connector service when a local station is otherwise unavailable. The Local Channel Connector captures stations' over-the-air digital signals via a free digital broadcast antenna and enables customers to select channels using the program guide. AT&T recently provided over 10,000 free Local Channel Connectors to Salt Lake City customers who went without the local NBC affiliate.
