Local Now – Free News, Shows, Movies, and Channels


From Wikipedia: Local Now (stylized as “local now”) is an American over-the-top internet television service owned by The Weather Group, LLC, a subsidiary of Entertainment Studios. A spinoff of The Weather Channel, Local Now primarily provides a cyclic playlist of weather, news, sports, entertainment and lifestyle segments, incorporating localized content through feeds geared to a user-specified area.

Local Now converted to a free-to-access model and has since expanded into a hybrid advertiser-supported streaming service, adding advertising video on demand (AVOD) content through digital linear channels and a selection of VOD programming supplied by Entertainment Studios, and various news providers and independent content distributors.

This add-on provides access to the free live “TV channels” and free on demand movies and TV shows from Local Now – no subscription required. The content is geo-restricted to the U.S. only.
