When Fox Local launched back in May, I was not impressed.
For one thing, it wasn't available on Roku. For another, it only offered 17 local channels, with Atlanta being the nearest to me. Over 200 miles is not local, as far as I'm concerned.
Well, they finally fixed one of the problems. It's now available on Roku, as of this week.
The other problem is a little better, sort of.
When the service launched, it listed these cities as available: Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Minneapolis-St.Paul, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa, and Washington DC.
In reality, only three of those were actually available -- Atlanta, Detroit, and Washington, DC -- with the rest listed as "coming soon." Well, those 14 are no longer "coming soon" but are actually available. Still, over 200 miles does me no good.
My Streaming Life won't benefit from Fox Local still. I'm still liking the idea of Fox Local. I'm not liking the execution.
