Today, Locast announced an emergency program for those who want to watch live, uninterrupted TV but can’t afford the recommended $5 donation due to hardship posed by coronavirus.
“If you currently do not contribute to Locast, need the uninterrupted service, and cannot afford to contribute $5 per month, send us an email at and we’ll give you interruption-free service for 30 days,” said Locast Founder and Chairman David Goodfriend. “Your local broadcast TV stations can provide exactly the kind of local emergency news and public health information you need to help slow the spread of coronavirus and keep yourself, your friends, and family safe.”
Viewers who want to take advantage of this offer can send an email request to [email protected].
Goodfriend went on to say that it’s important for viewers to be able to stay up to date on local emergency information and news during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Locast is a nonprofit local TV streaming service, available for free in 17 cities across the country. While the service is free of charge, Locast does frequently sent notifications to users, asking for a $5 donation for the service.
