BUMMER! Just got notice that Locast is suspending service immediately in light of the court decision against them. This is sad news as this service was invaluable to us RVers. Sure hope they can resolve the issue and be back because it was great while it lasted. Is there any other LIVE TV services out there? We use the individual network apps but a lot of networks are not available to stream online.

It was a PITA. No loss to me.

The major networks are available for streaming of their live programming... if you have a paid TV provider already. We have a Dish satellite TV account and, if I don't feel like setting up the antenna for a one- or two-nighter, I just log into the network apps on the smart TV using my Dish credentials. Depending on where we are, I also scan for local OTA stations.

Thank Oldman2 for the repost of the topic. As we travel, we usually are satisfied with OTA broadcasts. Many times though, we are in an area where OTA is not available. It would be nice to be able to get live, local news via the internet. We have had both DirectTV and Dish network and have dropped both due to the ever-increasing cost. We have not been able to find any service through which we can stream live TV.

Thanks Pianotuna, I will check that out. Doesn’t seem to carry major networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.) which is what is need to keep the wife happy. May be good for other kinds of entertainment though.

Unusual to have good enough internet to play live videos in areas where OTA doesn't work.

Not saying it can't happen but not common.
