We are always looking for ways to improve and enhance the Locals experience, both for content creators and supporters alike. We are excited to announce the next generation of the LocalsTV app! Not only is LocalsTV a whole new way to consume content, but it’s streamlined to make the experience simpler and faster than ever before!
Let’s go over the features that LocalsTV has to offer and how your viewers will be able to access your content.
You Can Easily Find Content
LocalsTV makes it easier than ever before to explore new content at no additional cost. From the LocalsTV Homepage, you’ll be able to see highlights of recent and trending videos and can easily explore both free and paid content without having to join or subscribe. This gives you a chance to see up-and-coming creators you may not be familiar with, and if any of them catch your attention, you can easily add their videos or podcasts to a list of favorites to watch or listen to later.
Additionally, every creator on LocalsTV has their own community page that shows all the videos they have uploaded. You can search for specific videos or audio podcasts. In the Videos and Podcasts sections, you can casually browse for all videos or all podcasts by trending, recent, oldest, or favorites.
Watch Content+ from the App
Content+ is a new feature that allows creators to monetize movies, specials, or other on-demand video content. After successfully releasing several films on Locals, we are excited to announce that with Content+, users have the ability to enjoy their purchases on the big screen.
Support Directly from the App
LocalsTV also makes it easy to support creators directly. You can binge on content from creators without commitment and easily unlock subscriber-only content by purchasing a subscription directly from the screen prompts on a locked video or podcast (once their preview is over).
Even LiveStream Connect has been incorporated into LocalsTV and is currently available on FireTV and GoogleTV and will be rolled out soon to AppleTV and Roku. Creators that live stream will be visible in the featured videos feed on the homepage. The community live chat will also be displayed, where viewers can participate with emojis.
“LocalsTV is an expansion of our ability to deliver content anywhere. Distribution of Video is fundamental to our creators, and we are thrilled to enhance the Locals experience for our creators and their members on this new medium,” said Assaf Lev, CEO of Locals.
