Allen Media Group's Free FAST Channel 'Local Now' Launches on FreeCast Streaming Platform 'SelectTV'
Local Now Delivers SelectTV Users Local News, Sports, Weather, Lifestyle Content and Much More

Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group (AMG) announced today the launch of its free FAST channel Local Now on the FreeCast streaming platform, SelectTV. The Local Now FAST channel offers real-time local news, weather, traffic, sports and lifestyle content, all in one place. The FAST channel is powered by the same unique technology as the Local Now free- streaming platform, which transmits localized information to 225+ markets across the United States.  

“We are excited to partner with FreeCast to offer SelectTV viewers free access to local news and weather,” said Byron Allen, Founder/Chairman/CEO of Allen Media Group–parent company of Local Now. “In addition, the Local Now FAST channel delivers local lifestyle content – including festival, restaurant and event information – which will allow SelectTV viewers to easily stay connected to what matters to them most.”

“For anyone who depends on the web for their television, local content has often been hard to come by. There are online news and weather channels, but they usually offer one single national feed,” said Tracy West, FreeCast’s Executive Vice President of Digital Content and Channel Distribution. “Local Now is great because it’s a dynamic channel that will provide each viewer local content from their own area, which isn’t something we’ve seen on this scale outside of cable and satellite bundles.” 

The Local Now FAST channel is powered by the same technology as AMG’s free-streaming platform, Local Now, which is the leading free streaming service for local news and entertainment in America. Local Now is changing the way Americans get news about their communities – delivering real-time, local news, weather, traffic, sports, and lifestyle information through unique technology. Currently, Local Now offers more than 450 free streaming channels, including a Local Now channel in every DMA in the country, as well as more than 16,000 movies, TV shows, and documentaries. The Local Now app is available on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Xfinity, Vizio, Samsung, Android, and iOS devices. (
