I got an e-mail about this.....and they are still claiming to free! Locast would be great if they just asked for a donation once when you first open their app and then allowed to watch without interruption.

Still waiting for Portland OR, but I am not sure if I will need them, as with stacking started on July 28th, most of everything is OTA here via our translators now. Soon to add 4 more channels, giving us 26.

Or just pay the nominal $5/mo and enjoy the service uninterrupted while helping keep the service alive.

I think you missed my point! I have OTA in my area and I don't need Locast, but if I did, I would gladly pay the $5 monthly donation/price. What I was saying is, they advertise their service as being free, but without donating each month it's an unwatchable abomination.

Then don't watch it since you don't need it. Those that do need it can sample Locast for free and then decide if they want the uninterrupted feed or not. The section of the copyright law exemption that Locast operates under permits them to charge a reasonable fee for operating expenses, yet Locast has only asked for donations so far.
