How do you get local channels on Roku?
The four major broadcast networks have filed a suit in federal court to shut down Locast, a nonprofit streaming service funded in part by AT&T Inc. and founded by a Dish Network Corp. argue that Locast is retransmitting the signals of their local TV stations without permission, in violation of copyright law.

There’s nothing more broken now than network tv, and independent stations and PBS too. All are not as well off as they once were. Matt Drudge occasionally prints TV ratings. They’re a joke. Hardly anyone is watching. The ratings are a joke. Network and non-Network stations are turning in the direction of going ALL NEWS with the loss of audience to streaming video and cable, the latter, incidentally, also in freefall.
The reason Locast is being sued is because the Big 4 Nets, not including PBS, are in danger of losing the $16 to $20 Billion in retransmission frees yearly they’re now getting from cable and satellite if they allow Locaste to simply be joined as a FREE Locast via streaming. Nearly all television, possibly even the networks themselves are headed for a streaming future, possibly streaming only, all out of the internet pipe and perhaps, not from off the air any longer. Local TV is enduring the same problems local radio endured during the 1950s and 60s, before they figured out successful format changes.
The Declining big 4 TV networks, their digenet channels, the Indy tv stations are all endangered, but the Big 4 are most endangered by the decline of cable. Hand in Hand with the dictated congressional retransmission fees, is a Law passed by Congress back in the eighties before the emergence of a cable retransmission fee bill, compelling Cable to include local Network television on cable systems.
Later, satellite added local network stations, but I don’t think the law compelled them to. Direct and Dish offered them if customers wanted them. Customers had to pay extra for them. It doesn’t take much insight to see that the network stations of the Big Four are going to want to be paid for being watched by the public too, no matter who actually streams them. The Roku article way up above mentions that CBS is charging for its own streaming of its O&Os (Owned and Operated stations) right now.
The Networks and conventional TV earned their low marks with TV audiences by continuually dumbing down their product, cutting production values to save money, and stuffing more commercials than ever into tv broadcasts. So called Reality TV was developed to cut the costs of directors, sets, personnel, big salaries for stars, etc.
The Newspapers never said a word about this because stations and networks were big advertisers. Infomercials which had once been banned on regular tv, began to appear on cable, but then were later returned to on air television without penalty. Oprah had to drop her talk show because stations couldn’t afford its high production costs any longer.
But she and Gayle are working for CBS News now. Everybody in the tv business knew the on air tv business was in decline, but the public wasn’t told because the press is always ‘kind to sponsors.’
A lot of folks think streaming is going to be cheaper. Not when all the players get done having their way with streaming, it isn’t. There are no immediate miracles. Once the streaming boom has been around awhile, the adoring public in love with it, will find out the truth about streaming. It will likely cost more than ever and you’ll have to pay your larger internet bill just to get access to it.
Will Roku work without a cable TV?
That is the point of having a Roku or Firestick device, is that you don’t need cable. Home WiFi is a must, however. If you are going completely without cable and you’re using multiple streaming devices on multiple TV’s, mobile phones, laptops, etc., you’re going to need some good bandwidth or your download speeds are going to take a beating.
And, make sure you know how much data you are allotted each month, or you could get a nasty surprise when you get your next bill!!
