Well, with the coming of the age of the INTERNET, there is no such thing as my home. My home is my device where ever I go, i should still be able to access the local channels within that specific device. The reason, the rule of "MY HOME" still apply is for traditional cable TV where you required a cable box to register to that specific home to access the local channels, but those boxes doesn't use internet to access the channels.
But when you bring cable channels to the market through the use of internet, that same rule does not apply and NEW rules should be implemented. The NEW rules should be that as long as you have internet, you should be able to access your local channels to the specific region that you're in. No difference than a car radio receivers with the ability to receive radio stations to a specific location when your car happen to be in another city. These are FREE channels...and should be readily available where ever you are, I don't see a rights play a part in this.

So basically, if you stream outside of your home network, you can never get local channels? So, the ONLY way to watch local is to stay home? Why couldn't they make it so that if you're outside and in a different city, you should be able to stream those local channels from that particular city?
Another thing that i don't understand it, why is it such a big deal when it comes to streaming local channels? These are NOT paid TV channels...these are FREE OTT channels and should be readily available. It's not like people are stealing these channels without paying for them. So i don't get it.
