Can’t I already watch broadcast TV online?

Sometimes, yes. The major broadcast networks have “apps” on which viewers can watch network programming and some local broadcasters offer time-delayed or live stream versions of their programming. However, you might have to be a cable or satellite subscriber to “authenticate” such access, or you might have to pay a fee, and rarely can you receive a live stream version of all local broadcasts. Locast.org, like the broadcast translators found around the country, simply offers local broadcast streams to the local market.
