Thank You as you can see nothing is there really to warrant this.

I sure wish locast would become available for the Toledo market.  I realize that's not likely...

Well dont feel too bad. Locast aint perfect. Generally it works but it does freeze and buffer sometimes.

Its a little screwy but works generally.

Re: You may NOT need an Antenna

Not the same like Aero at all, not even a little bit.

Locast is a nonprofit and under the law nonprofits are allowed transmission rights of OTA's. That is the law that Locast is defending itself with. Furthermore, AT&T and Dish are supporting Locast with funds.

This is in no way a cut and dry case at all.

Yes, cities are limited, but they just added 2 new cities last week. They're slow and limited because they are a nonprofit company and not one out there doing this everywhere looking for profit.

That's encouraging!  What are the two new cities/markets?  Thanks.

Phoenix and Atlanta I do believe.

If you google it you will find the press on it.

Why didn't I think of that!?

Anyway, you're right.  Phoenix and Atlanta.

I checked out the cities (not in St. Louis) and wanted to let you know that Seattle is now on the list of cities.
