  • Wonderful, looking for a streaming service like this on my laptop! My 50-mile flat antenna broke and even it could not get NBC and FOX even though they’re only 10 miles away.

    Pretty sure we have a thread about this too. Has anyone figured out how to make the service usable and not drop you back to the guide after demanding a “donation” of $5/month?

    Hurry!!! One year Locast without receiving donation-request interruptions limited to the first 25,000 who qualify:

    Hello Locast user,
    We noticed that you have chosen not to donate to Locast and wanted to let you know about a new offer that might make sense for you.
    Times are tough for many folks during this pandemic. While Locast is a not-for-profit organization that relies on user donations to help us deliver on our mission, we realize that not everyone is in a position to provide financial support.
    We’re now offering the Locast Cares Program – a way for users who cannot donate financially to watch their local TV channels without receiving donation-request interruptions.
    Our Locast Cares Program furthers our mission to provide access to local news, weather, sports, emergency information and entertainment.
    The Locast Cares Program is a limited time offer. The first 25,000 qualifying applicants shall receive one year of uninterrupted Locast service. If you or someone you know wants to watch Locast without getting donation requests but cannot afford to donate, please apply at www.locast.org/cares.

    I applied online and got my confirmation of acceptance into Locast Cares within an hour. Local Broadcast TV on my phone donation-request interuption free. Wahoo!
