Chord Cutters Trying to Watch Any BIG Games This Weekend on Fox Using Roku Could End Up With a Headache. Here's Your Remedy

You may have heard that FOX may be unavailable on ROKU this weekend while the two companies hammer out a new agreement. This might put football fans in the dark. Locast, a nonprofit local broadcast TV streaming service, offers the Big Game (they won't let us say its name, it's absurd, do you know what I'm talking about? Of course, you do, everyone does, but here we are calling it the "Big Game" year after year. All because we are afraid of the watchful eye of Soron) on ROKU this Sunday in 17 cities. Locast is a free service available via an app on ROKU as well as other streaming platforms.

The game will be broadcast on your local FOX TV, and Locast provides local TV channels in the following designated market areas: Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Denver, Dallas, Houston, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Baltimore, New York, and Boston. Locast is also available in Sioux Falls and Rapid City, South Dakota, and Sioux City, Iowa.

To watch Locast on ROKU, simply download the free Locast app or visit to find out where Locast offers your local TV channels for free. With Locast, viewers can easily watch the game online, on-the-go, or at home via internet-connected computers, streaming media players, phones or tablets.

It's a great way to watch any bowl. Be it super or otherwise. Is that too close? Oh well, too late. Enjoy the game, or don't. Maybe watch a Friends episode on the CW, the choice is yours.
