It's just going to save me some money.

In my lifetime which is quite long, TV stations were to make money on advertising. For those of us who lived (live) in areas that no OTA is available even though the stations claimed us within their Designated Market Area thereby precluding television reception, cable/satellite offered an alternative. But with the advent of streaming that's all out of date.

I supported Locast not because we watched anything except emergency news, but only because of emergency news like right now as California burns up. The problem is, that news is on the internet so who needs local television stations?

If Locast comes back, I'll support them. But I will not directly give a "local" (aka unavailable OTA) station a dime except for KPIX which comes with Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access).
