Recent large expansions and improvements in the Locast broadcast via internet service seemed to come straight out of nowhere, but a press release seems to have slipped under the radar, in that at&t donated $500k to Locast, which at least appears to have made both LA and SF markets, complete with subchannels, go 'live' recently. Also of note is apparently (I don't live in either market and dumped DirecTV almost a year ago) their DVR system has been updated to 'tune' Locast through the internet (unknown as to actual record capability). And why would they do this? Recent kron4/sf fee dispute holds the key. Nexstar, kron4 owners, Jack's up carridge fees. DirecTV (and also apparently uverse subscribers) simply jump over to the Locast stream to continue to receive the broadcasts. Checkmate AT&T. Maybe Nexstar rethinks their position, or decides to sue Locast. Will be very interesting to see how this plays out in the coming days.
