Watch local channels

I am moving and basic tv is very expensive is their a good apk where I can get local programing? With fire stick.


Locast was great until the Networks shut it down last month. Try an antenna and, if that works, a FireTV Recast.

You can’t get local channels on an IPTV service, just national networks.

Yes, you actually can. Need to find the right providers. You can get locals from a ton of different cities all across the country. If I want to watch the news in Anchorage, Alaska right now I could.

I just browsed through a TP article on the site, 87 best apps or such, and in there is an app aimed at providing local channels. I use OLA TV but it takes a bit of effort to find the servers supplying your local channels, but it is free. I spent 4 days going through every server to see what they have. Personally I don’t care what network is supplying a program, it’s the program I care about.

I put up an antenna, but I must be in a low or weird spot. I’m 35 - 40 miles from the source, but CBS (Chicago) won’t come in easily. Any suggestions on a good antenna?

Parabolic grid antenna. That’s a whole other world I’m not going to get into on this forum.

Other than my FSs on my TVs, I have digital antennas that pick up all my local channels just for news and weather purposes.

Some IPTVs have local stations they offer from across the country.
I live in Kentucky…but I can watch Channel 5 from Memphis, TN an NBC affiliate for instance with my current IPTV provider.

Thanks, yes, I can watch “local” stations from NY, LA, Atlanta, etc, on some non-IPTV apps, but nothing from where I live (Raleigh, NC) on anything.


Send me a private message and I will check what locals I can get with my IPTV provider when I get home this evening. If you don’t message me I’ll likely forget.

not sure how to send private?

Click on his name and pm option will show

is this a private email?

Nope, but I just sent you one.

very happy with them as i’m getting into the mlb playoffs

You might check out antenna man. I have an outside antenna & pick up aprox 65 channels with it aimed toward Cleveland, Since I have rotor on it, I can pick up an additional 40 channels.

thanks I have had luck getting locals where i live but not where moving to that would be rapid city closest big city.

Also checked out CBS, Fox and NBC and all were working as of two minutes ago.
