WHNE is happy to announce the exciting new service here in Detroit! You can now watch all 12 WHNE channels without using an antenna and it's FREE!
Locast is a public service to Americans, providing local broadcast signals (like WHNE) over the Internet. All you have to do is sign up online and certify that you live in the Detroit TV market, then, you can select among all the local broadcasters and stream your favorite local station.
Locast is accessible to viewers in nine counties in the Detroit-Ann ArborTV market including Lapeer, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Sanilac, St. Clair, Washtenaw, and Wayne.
Locast.org is a “digital translator,” meaning that Locast.org operates just like a traditional broadcast translator service, except instead of using an over-the-air signal to boost a broadcaster’s reach, we stream the signal over the Internet to consumers.
You need a broadband Internet connection for optimal performance. Using a laptop, smartphone, or computer connected to the Internet, point your browser to www.Locast.org to sign up. You then can choose which local broadcast station to watch from your Internet-enabled device.
Ever since the dawn of TV broadcasting in the mid-20th Century, non-profit organizations have provided “translator” TV stations as a public service. Where a primary broadcaster cannot reach a receiver with a strong enough signal, the translator amplifies that signal with another transmitter, allowing consumers who otherwise could not get the over-the-air signal to receive channels that you can't receive off air directly. Locast.org provides the same public service,except instead of an over-the-air signal transmitter, we provide the local broadcast signal via online streaming.
