How to Install Local Now App on Firestick/Fire TV, Android, and Roku

This step-by-step tutorial guide will show you How To Install Local Now App on Firestick/Fire TV, Android, and Roku devices.

Local Now is a popular free streaming application for watching the local news, weather, and even some movies.

The company explained the service on its website:

Local Now is your one stop shop to stream news and movies for FREE. Get your day started with a fresh approach to local news.

This is a solid free application for those just looking to stream basic weather, news, and other local options without having cable.

Many cord-cutters have trouble finding local news stations without using an OTA Antenna and this resolves that issue.

We have even included Local Now within our guide on Streaming Local Channels Without Cable.

Local Now is available in the Amazon App Store, Google Play Store, Roku Channel Store, and more. Use each guide below to install on your preferred device.

Local Now Description & Details

Local Now’s slogan within their app description is “Local Now – Free News, Weather, Movies.”

Similar to watching free movies on YouTube, oftentimes you have to sit through 30-second ad clips prior to watching content.

If you wish to use subtitles within the app, simply play your preferred channel or title and click any button to open settings. Then choose CC.

Links within Local Now are mostly available in Standard Definition, oftentimes played in both 1080p and 720. This is for several channels and movies.

For more information on Local Now and the content they offer, I suggest viewing their official website.

Because Local Now is a free app for streaming local channels, options can become very limited.

If you are looking for more Live TV options that offer thousands of channels in higher quality, refer to our popular IPTV guide below.
