    TiVo Stream (which mostly means Locast is on Android TV), or you can go to the VEWD app store for the Locast app.

    CT is one of the wealthier markets in America. No Locast to be found. My market in southern CT includes NYC. I wonder how long it will take. I would definitely use and pay for locals. The picture quality has to be better than Comcast.

    What is your FCC official DMA? Just because you can received NYC stations OTA, or those stations are on cable due to negotiated payments, does not mean those stations are part of the DMA, and Locast, due to the way they are trying to thread the regulatory needle, is strictly sticking to the DMA restrictions for their offering (which means no out-of-market stations, and every market has to be explicitly built out). While one can discuss whether the DMA market restrictions serve today's viewers well, they are the regulation of the land.

    You can use a VPN and set it to a region where Locast is available.

    My specific region is NewHaven/Hartford but New Haven is what they use. I get New York stations from xfinity but I am aware Locast has no love for me.

    Anyone aware of a way to record shows that are streamed using locast? Ideally using Tivo, but I suspect that is not likely.

    Found a solution using Plex TV, but have not tried it. Plex + locast
